epiphany doesn't play any more real audio streams after upgrading to intrepid

Asked by Paolo Benvenuto

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

I've just updated to intrepid, but unfortunatly I can't listen any more to real audio streams with epiphany.

Just click on the italian RAI last news link:


It worked in dapper, but it doesn't in intrepid it doesn't: the player guy is show for some seconds, and after that the space of that guy gets gray, and nothing is streamed.

I have realplayer installed

ii realplayer 1:11.0.0-0.2 RealPlayer 10 based on the open source Helix player

Same problem with firefox.
