PulkoMandy of the Haiku operating systems reported that he has successfully added HTML5 video support to WebPositive (the default Haiku web browser) as part of his ongoing contract work. The report on the Haiku website gives some more details about the work that went into getting HTML5 video to work.

For those that want to rush out and try it, the HTML5 stuff is not yet rolled into the nightly build (as of hrev47099)....I'm guessing pulkomandy will push some of this, in the weeks to follow.

I had to check my calendar. For a minute there, I thought I was back in 2009.

Mighty big talk from somebody who's handle is a different, nearly-dead platform.

@drumhellar

Let's throw this one into the mix as well shall we. AmigaOS HTML5 version with Video support released 2 weeks+ earlier than this Haiku news item :-;

Good for Amiga, but I'm really not sure what that has to do with Haiku OS...

Great news from my favorite OS project! I still have high hopes and a soft spot for Haiku though I know it will never garner the glory that BeOS had in the day.

THIS is the kind of info I like to see in OSnews.
