[webkit-qt] qt47-webkit issues playing video

I am having an issue with qt47-webkit on CentOS 5.8. I have a simple  
application that displays a webpage. It seems to work well and I can  
go to various sites that test HTML5 compatibility. qt47-webkit appears  
to support HTML5 video. However, whenever I go and try to view a  
video, no matter the format ( MP4, WebM, Theora ) qt webkit doesn't  
play the video.

Any ideas what the problem might be? I've got codecs installed on the  
CentOS 5 box etc so I'm not sure why video isn't working. I get no  
run-time warning messages, phonon isn't complaining. The videos just  
display a black box.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
