Opera doesn't support H.264 as HTML video either. Google, Mozilla, and Opera have all publicly stated that they are not support H.264 in their browsers. Safari and IE 9 are the only two major browsers that support H.264 playback in HTML.
Another reason I don't believe that is Apple's fault is because on the desktop browser you can clearly see the H.264 file. It is not a Quicktime file. Even if the browser does not support H.264, the media framework built into the OS should be able to pick up the file and play it. The reason Android does not do this, I don't know.
edit: TenoBell or anyone else, if you have iPhone and Opera, would you test it? Does it work? Thanks!
I have Skyfire on my iPhone. It plays Apple trailers fine. Skyfire on the iPhone does support H.264 playback in HTML. But even if it didn't the built in media framework would pick up the file and play it.
You can point your Android browsers to html5test.com, under the video section you can see what video codecs those browsers support. If it has an X next to MPEG-4 and H.264. Then you know that the browser does not support playback.
