I just wrote a quick test and pointed a QNXStageWebView to a site with HTML5 video and tested on my Dev Alpha and PlayBook and it appears you're right, it's not working. I'll dig into why, and if it should and post my findings.

I just recieved this from Max Feil a software developer here at RIM:
"In GR2.x.x fullscreen mode needs to be implemented by the AIR app. If you don't implement it, fullscreen mode will not work. The WebWorks SDK has a FullScreenView class available to assist WebWorks apps in this. Non WebWorks AIR app writers can use it for ideas. After the QNXStageWebView object is constructed, you would make an ActionScript call like:
fsView = new FullScreenView( this, fullscreenClientGet() );
Unfortunately in GR2.x.x WebKit always assumes that fullscreen mode is available (it does not check). So if no fullscreen widget is implemented by the AIR app, you will get into the situation you described where only a part of the preparation for fullscreen has been done and you cannot exit. This is fixed in BB10. In the meantime, AIR app writers need to at least have a skeleton of a fullscreen widget in place that at minimum allows the user to exit, or just exits fullscreen mode immediately."
Hope this helps.
