Do you have necessary video codecs installed?

1: i know that qupzilla %s can be set but globally i cannot from defaults list.

2: i tested and same result that i can hear audio only.

pejakm: i do not know if this is even connected but i have fully installed libav (libav extra)

Best way is to see yourself is to run live ubuntu 12.04 lastest and instal QupZilla.

  1. There should be option to specify command for default browser, isn't it?
  2. well, in that case, it is qtwebkit issue

there should appear QupZilla to override defaults globally.

I guess you should be able to add qupzilla into the list with one of these commands:

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-www-browser x-www-browser /usr/bin/qupzilla 70

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser gnome-www-browser /usr/bin/qupzilla 70

(you will probably need to run it as root)

@fcore117, install gstreamer good, bad and ugly plugins, and you should have video support. You can test it on my audio and video test pages.

i tested update-alternatives both but no use, maybe it helps when .deb (from ppa) makes entry to default browser selection.

as for video maybe it is possible to connect with ffmpeg for playback?

@fcore117, let me explain once again. Qtwebkit (the rendering engine which QupZilla use) is using phonon as multimedia engine. So, if you want to reproduce multimedia content in QupZilla, you should have installed some phonon backend, like gstreamer or vlc. If the first is your case, then install those plugins I mentioned. If latter (vlc-phonon-backend), then you already should have vlc installed.

@pejakm That's not entirely true, current version of QtWebKit is no longer using Phonon as a multimedia backend. It may now use either GStreamer, QtMultimedia or QtKit.

@fcore117 Hmm ... i will take a look at firefox package.

Maybe FFmpeg or Libav depending on distro(Ubuntu uses Libav i think). Chrome uses FFmpeg too for playback and GStreamer is too "fat" for cross platform.

currently qupzilla are not listed cos maybe the desktop file entry are incompatible with section applications category, maybe winbuntu change the category for internet applications. in debian the category are Network, so in the "qupzilla.desktop" file on /usr/share/applications directoy u sould have a line entry like this: "Categories=Network;WebBrowser;" but if winbutnu not follow freedesktop policy or qupzilla not have this line, will not show anything.. (after put this comment i revised source files in github for that file)

now i tested in qupzilla its showin in menu ... so for default browser u must setup based on u'r desktop.. i used debian that simply works.. should u use a debian linux ..jajajaj

ok lest see.. in lxde default browser are set by a especial function that read desktop file into applications directory using freedesktop org standard..

in razorqt default browser must are listed under mime xdg script helpers... maybe u are using and older and not standar sdg-helper package, i recommends u sed a recend "xdg-utils" package with all browsers listed.. venenux desktop linux has a better implementation and cos its works..

about rendering html5 this are not a issue of qupzilla, its depends of u' ffmpeg and vp8 codec in respect webkit/qwebkit package instaled.
