Hi, I'm struggling to get anything but the simplest of web applications running on the PlayBook sim. I can't get <audio> or <video> tags to work with any file formats locally or remotely. I can also see no way of actually debugging running code. Am I missing something?

for what its worth, I was trying to use embed after these failed and it didn't work either. I assumed it was just a limitation of the simulator as I can't find any method or file format to work. I tried both tags and also tried .mp3, .m4a, .ogg, and .wav sound files. Which VMWare are you using? I'm wondering if there may be a difference between VMWare Player and VMWare Fusion that is causing it.

This is a known issue with the 0.9.2 simulator that has been reported and is being repaired by our internal development teams. I expect this will be fixed in a future version of the PlayBook sim.

Rizer -- I am on VMWare Fusion on a Mac as well.
Adam -- Thanks for the heads up! Glad to hear its not just a mac issue.
And do you have any suggestions while its being worked on for testing apps? I'd have to agree that its kind of hard to develop a webapp without some webapp technologies... Is there a way that you would suggest testing an app (hardware or simulator) in the mean time?

Any progress with this? I am using HTML5 audio in my webapp and it works perfectly in a regular browser but I don't get sound in the emulator or on the phisical device.
