[aur-general] Qt 4.8 hits [testing] + qtwebkit package

Hey Andrea,

Nice work.

But - HTML5 video and audio tags aren't working for me. I tried it in 
konqueror, rekonq and aurora. The first frame of the video loads, but it won't 
play. This is with either gstreamer or vlc phonon backends.

I tried youtube in HTML5 mode and also http://tinyvid.tv/. Same result.

html5test.com reports that everything is fine for video except subtitles.

I tried rebuilding a few related packages (phonon, phonon-gstreamer, etc.), 
but nothing seemed to change the behaviour.

Any ideas?
