Impossible to play a video under Mageia Linux 3 with Mozilla Firefox 17.0.9 ESR

I succeed in playing videos with HTML5, for example this one:

but mine with GNU Mediagoblin doesn't work, it looks like it's always loading, the length of the video stays at 0:00:

I can read my video with VLC. Moreover, please can you refine your code so that a message is displayed when the html5 video markup is supported but not the webm codec? You can call canPlayType('video/webm') onto the DOM element to check that. Best regards.

Maybe it is caused by this bug:
bug 775 in videojs

I think you're right about the bug in videojs... I'm not seeing it here, so it makes sense to me that it's that race condition.

The question is, what should we do at the moment? I tend to prefer running a stable release of things, and we can wait for the latest release to come out of videojs. Alternately we could backtrack on videojs back to the old version we were running until this is fixed... heh!

It seems to work now. I don't really know why.
