It shouldn't be dependent on drivers, but not all browsers that support
HTML5 video (or audio, for that matter) will play all HTML5 videos.
Different browsers support different codecs, and while Chrome, Safari,
and IE support proprietary codecs like H.264 and AAC, Firefox supports
only free codecs, like Theora, VP8 (aka WebM) and Vorbis.

So, while Firefox mostly works with HTML5 video on Youtube (since Google
supports WebM there for many videos), most other sites only offer H.264
video via HTML5, which won't work with Firefox. Most of those sites will
fall back to using Flash to play such videos on Firefox if it's
available, though.
