YouTube, HTML5 on Chrome

http://www.youtube.com/html5 says that Chrome works with HTML 5.  But this is what I get to see on Chrome.


Strange.  Did I mess up anything or someone at YouTube constructed the HTML as follows:


<div class="yt-static-tt-entry"> 
<div class="info"> 
<h3>Supported Browsers</h3> 
<p>Right now we support browsers that support both the <video> tag in HTML5 and the h.264 video codec. These include:</p> 
<ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> 
<li style="margin-left: 2em">Google Chrome</li> 
<li style="margin-left: 2em">Apple Safari (version 4+)</li> 
<li style="margin-left: 2em">Microsoft Internet Explorer with Chrome Frame installed (<a href="http://code.google.com/chrome/chromeframe/">Get Chrome Frame</a>)</li> 
</ul> 
</div> 
</div>

Good find. :)

But the player is working perfectly for me.

I'm using Google Chrome Beta that supports extensions. May be that's the reasons.

The new beta version (3.5) supports HTML5, not the 3.0 version that you may still be running. See: http://chrome.blogspot.com/2009/08/new-beta-why-slow-down-when-you-can.html

Yes. The new beta works, but the page at http://www.youtube.com/html5 still shows broken text after the tag.
