User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-GB; rv:1.9.1b2) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/3.1b2 Ubiquity/0.1.5

The new <audio> tags do not seem to work in beta 2 on Ubuntu 8.10.
I created a test page with an <audio> tag it did not work and instead displayed the alternate text.

The audio file was an ogg vorbis.  I've tried with and with out controls.
Also tried the nightly builds.  The controls appear, but do not seem to work.



note: <video> seems to work fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a webpage like:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Test</title>
</head>
<body>
Flame
   <audio src="http://media.testserver/upload/track/2009/02/02/Flame.ogg" autoplay>
    No Fun
   </audio>
<a href="http://media.my_band/upload/track/2009/02/02/Flame.ogg" title="Download Flame">
  Download
</a>

<video src="http://media.testserver/upload/track/2009/02/02/big_buck_bunny_1080p_stereo.ogg" controls>
  Your browser does not support the <code>video</code> element.  
</video>  
</body></html>
2. View Page
Actual Results:  
The page looks something like:

Flame No Fun Download Flame (does not play)

(Displays the video and controls)

Expected Results:  
The page should look something like:

Flame Download (plays track)

(Displays the video and controls)

Test case with valid Audio and Video links

Thanks Matthias.

Added a working video URL too.
I think this has already been fixed on trunk and 1.9.1.  Please try a nightly build of the 1.9.1 branch from here:
