I can't seem to get any sort of video to play on the playbook simulator. I've tried youtube video, local videos of .mov, .m4v,.avi,.flv, anf .swf formats on different players like jwplayer and flow. I've tried making a page (.html) with JUST the video in it (and standard html tags) and the playbook just doesn't show anything =[
Here is an the code for one of the attempts (works in browser just fine, but not the playbook)
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">
I've tried the <object> and <embed> tags as well. Nothing happens, the playbook screen is just blank...
Thanks so much for any help!!!

Im having the same issu aswell.
I used jwplayer to embed streaming media on my webserver. It works on browser but when on playbook. player only show blank video.
Does playbook have to use built in player/api to play a video. or we can use any flash video player availabale on the net?

What i found is in some documentation they have said that there are no codecs distributed
with the simulator so it cannot play audio/video for playbook and smartphone version 7.0
