Google Chrome on Linux with videos at http://www.apple.com/trailers
Many people are now starting to ask me if gecko-mediaplayer works on Google Chrome on Linux. For the most part I can say yes, but the main exception appears to the media at http://www.apple.com/trailers . What appears to be happening is that the code to switch the user agent from Chrome to QuickTime does not appear to be working. I believe this is due to Chromes emulation (or not) of the NS_GetServiceManager function call. So until that is fixed, apple.com media will be unplayable in Chrome on Linux.
