You need to install our HTML5 Audio and Video Add-on from the App Center to enable H.264 rendering of HTML5 video in the Chromium browser and your web apps.
After the install, you need to restart your session. To experience HTML5, you can use YouTube HTML5 Video Player, switch to the HTML5 player on Vimeo, etc.
Note: When you play a local video directly from the desktop (Files tab), it's a preview using the HTML5 capabilities of your browser therefore the playback depends on the codecs supported by the browser itself. For specific instructions related to your browser, please contact its publisher.
