For Chrome, we have set the fallback for the ogv video as Youtube.  But, I have been told that Chrome supports open video and should be able to see the subtitle solution with a proper implementation.
OS: Mac OS X → All
Hardware: x86 → All
http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody has a solution which makes good use of the <video> tag and the fallbacks it allows.  <video> works on Safari if you encode the video as mp4 instead of ogg, which would mean subtititles would work there (and we'd have a better open-web experience).

Also, from http://diveintohtml5.org/detect.html#video, you can use this to detect if <video> is supported:

function supports_video() {
  return !!document.createElement('video').canPlayType;
}
OS: All → Mac OS X
Hardware: All → x86
The doctype is also wrong.

I already have the validation to make this happen, it is only one line change.

Carlos - how come we aren't making use of <video> ?
The <video> tag actually is there, but it's generated in JS then appended after detection.
If we can just fix the chrome thing, we'll be in good shape.
