I can't answer your question but the packaged binaries (at least on 
jaunty) are getting closer.

Via the html5 media tags, epiphany / midori will now display the 
specified poster but do not yet play media, and google chrome (jaunty) 
which I believe uses their own static webkit build now plays ogg 
vorbis/theora but does not yet play h.264/mp3 (yes, I have the fluendo 
plugins) - so it probably will not be much longer until the packaged 
binaries do it.
