Native html video player is taking priority over ogv.js when Xiph QuickTime components are installed but nothing works -- just get a black screen.

Either it's misdirecting as available or it has some format problem and should be blacklisted...

Ok so there's an explicit check for ogg plugin support because apparently it used to work natively if you had the qt components but didn't report compatibility through the video.canPlayType interface... But it doesn't seem to work anymore, and that just breaks. I'll test removing it...
