    Has anyone gotten html5 video to work on the droid browser? I went to Theora - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and the video stated my browser doesn't have a player. I am using 2.1 ota, but not sure why the browser doesn't have a player.

    I don't think any mobile browsers support HTML5 video yet.

    EDIT: Upon looking into this further it looks like it is supposed to but I can't get it to work either. Weird.

    The following code will work for playing the video in the full screen mode.

    <video src="sample_mpeg4.mp4" onclick="this.play();">

    click in the video icon so watch the video :)
