The new video- and audio-tag are great, but the controls (play/pause,
skip forward, skip back, volume, progress bar, time) should be
possible without scripting. Some standard-controls that also can be
modified with CSS. Because some users deactivate Scripting (for
security or whatever other reason) and on other computers (school,
university, work,...) you are not able to change the settings, even if
you want to. E.g. I use NoScript and only allow scripting on very few
trusted sites, that really need it.
