comment How to style HTML5 <meter> tag
It’s silly to include all that cross-browser gradient stuff when it’s behind a WebKit-specific pseudo-element selector that Mozilla and IE will never parse.

Looks like Firefox does not implement MediaSource.duration: bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=896884

Accepting this answer because it did help me get over the initial hurdle even if it’s not cross-browser. I also learned elsewhere on SO (can’t find the link) that you can get any WebM to work by encoding it with all keyframes, e.g. by using -g 1 in ffmpeg.

OK, I tried that and it indeed works in Chrome. Still not working in Firefox, though my hunch is it may be an implementation issue where the duration property is never updated from the default value of NaN.

comment Media Source Extensions Not Working
Thanks for the informative reply. However, that’s only one video—I’m not splitting it up into chunks like Eric’s doing. I want to combine separate videos together. I just ran mse_webm_remuxer from the tools you linked to on all of the videos. Voila, no more unpredictable glitches in Chrome! But alas, it still pauses once a media segment ends, and even when you press play, it sometimes gets stuck on one frame. In Firefox Beta, it doesn’t play past the first segment: TypeError: Value being assigned to SourceBuffer.timestampOffset is not a finite floating-point value. Will add this to the OP.

Support for this is looking up. Stable Chrome now includes it by default, FF can do it with a flag, and even IE 11 has it: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/MediaSource
