    I cannot for the life of me get HTML5 videos to load and play on my Firefox 4.0b7 beta browser.

    For example, the following vid automatically switches to HTML5 instead of Flash because I'm part of the trial:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Vf_iAqyLL8

    ...however, all I get is a black unloaded screen, and greyed out buttons - I cannot click play, fullscreen, resolution, or ANYTHING. I click on "HTML5" and it just redirects me to youtube.com/html5. My "dom.storage.enabled" is set to true already. HTML5 simply doesn't work.

    What's going on?? Someone please help.

    Note: I run Mac OS X 10.6.5 with the latest non-beta update. My Flash is 10.2 beta - I have tried loading the above video (and all HTML5 videos) with Flash enabled and disabled. I can watch HTML5 perfectly in Safari, though, but that's not the point!

    Here's a screenshot:
