I suspect that you're correct. While Vimeo works here, I did notice that 
the Youtube HTML5 player had stopped working; it automatically reverted 
to using Flash.

The attached one-liner patch to debian/rules seems to address that 
problem on my system. This line in debian/rules was present in older 
Chromium packaging.
