HTML5 Video and BB6 #260

Currently our API docs specify that BB6 supports HTML5 video when it doesn't actually support it.

We need to remove the supported on BB6 flag from the API documentation

What is the alternative method of playing video in a BB6 application using WebWorks?

If you have a link that is an rtsp url, it will automatically open itself up in the BlackBerry media player

Could i do this with a poster image and invoke the browser on click with the URL?

That should work

This pull request should fix the docs

The "Supported Platform(s)" still contain BB OS 6+ and it seems to work on the one hand and doesn't work on the other?
