Treehouse on Raspberry Pi

Hi all,

I've just got a new Pi and have been trying to find a way to watch the treehouse course videos on it, so I can learn from my much more comfy sofa rather than my computer chair.

I've tried a whole bunch of browsers for the Pi but nothing appears to be able to run the videos - a couple will load the initial image but no further and some won't handle the treehouse site at all.

Has anyone out there had any luck getting this working? Or have any ideas which may help?

try installing omxplayer. That should fix the problem.

I couldn't get that working at all, I did find this: http://lin.jojen.de/play-html-5-video-raspberry-pi-in-midori-chrome/

Which works and allows me to watch http://www.w3.org/2010/05/video/mediaevents.html (i even got the sound working!) But the videos on treehouse do not load the 'play' symbol to launch in omxplayer.
