Confirmed for me.

On Mac OS X 10.7 something

Safari: 5.1.7 (7534.57.2) : I get the video interface, can look at the details. When clicking the play button, browser freeze for a while and eventually got a black screen too.

Runs fine with Firefox 12.0

Works for me in Safari 5.1.7 on OS X 10.7.4, with XiphQT components installed.

If you don't have the XiphQT components, I think it's supposed to fall back to Cortado (the Java applet player), but it's possible that recent updates to Apple's Java are disabling that.

Tauhida / Hashar: Is this still a problem?
(Sorry, no Safari around here.)

I got Safari Version 6.0 (7536.25) now. The video plays with a HTML5 <video> element apparently with webm. So might have been fixed :-)

Thanks. CLosing as there is indication that this is fixed.
