Safari native browser support for media doesn't have pause/scrubbing controls
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: suicup

Description:
Safari 4 has native support for ogg vorbis and theora media files on wikipedia, and one can play these files without starting the cortado player.

However, once the blue 'play' button is clicked, there is no way to pause or scrub through the media! This means that you cannot stop a video/sound file from playing until either it finishes, or you browse to a different page.

There needs to be basic playback controls built in, otherwise it makes the whole thing pretty useless.

this is essentially a duplicate bug of "merge js2 player"

I will re-factor the 18869 bug patch as a user configurable option to switch oggHanlder over to video/js2 player. Once the new trunk goes "live" we can add it as a user enabled feature to get more testing and feedback.
