[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#626805: chromium: <audio> tag broken too

Package: chromium
Version: 11.0.696.65~r84435-1
Followup-For: Bug #626805

I also get the "undefined" thing on some youtube videos. Here's how
to reproduce this:

1) go to http://youtube.com/html5 and click to join the trial

2) go to a video which doesn't require flash, like this one:

Another use case: Try to play a video on wikipedia. E.g. the one on
the right here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogg#File_format

For me, when I click the play button, it says "Sorry, your system
does not appear to have any supported player software. Please
download a player."

Also, I'd like to report that this version of chromium seems to
lack support for the <audio> tag as well.

This page worked before the upgrade:
but now it says I'm running an unsupported browser.

I'm happy to help out with further testing, just let me know if
there's something I can do.

Thank you,   - Jason
