Ok, my first attempts at HTML5 video, and none too impressed. Before I give up, and revert to flash can someone help? My code is extremely simple- I used Firefgg to convert my master .mov to webm format. It plays fine locally from the desktop in Firefox, but once uploaded all I see is a black screen. Also my .mp4 (h.264) video plays fine on the desktop in chrome/Safari but as well chugs badly ( 1 frame per second?)once uploaded to my server. Any tips or suggestions welcome!

    margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        background-color: #000000 }
