Chromium and Iceweasel.

Right... I only tried YouTube in Iceweasel and forgot about YouTube
having WebM. Sorry.

It seemed to me that Firefox/Iceweasel was going to start supporting
H.264,[1] but perhaps I was mistaken.

Since Debian already includes H.264 support, surely it would be better
if Iceweasel could use it directly instead of relying on a Flash plugin.
