Webm support works fine with Firefox and Youtube. You have to go into the experimental features youtube page to turn on webm (or at least did last time I tried)
Note that due to a bug in the OS/2 multimedia you might have to pause a video and then restart it to get sound. This is true with Flash as well.

I had forgotten all about that feature, unfortunately this version of firefox doesn't support it. Just the video tag, no webm. As far as I can tell, eCS requires work to actually use for me, at the moment. Will see if I can force Gnash in some way manually, even if I have to code my own plugin for OS/2, but probably unlikely I'll succeed. I've already read that Gnash requires GTK libraries to work as a Firefox plugin, and GTK isn't in it, otherwise there wouldn't be a discussion about porting Gimp(My favorite image editor), porting GTK with Odin will probably be even more work.

Dave Yeo:
Update Firefox if yours is too old. ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/mozilla/ contains most of the newest ones, latest being 10.0.12ESR. Note for that version you also need the mzfntcfgft runtime.

Thank you sir, you've been very helpful. Note to anyone else who might be half retarded like me: When it says it needs libc064.dll it means it. If you did what I did, just create an ISO with libc064 in it ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.4-csd4.zip, mount it to the CD drive via Virtualbox, and unzip it to your mozilla folders. I did both C:\home\default\Mozilla\Firefox and C:\programs\firefox I'm thinking only one of these locations actually need it, and that would(might be) the first one.

Doug Bissett:
Libc06x is a little unusual. You need to do the updates properly, or it will screw up. You need to use the latest set, which includes older DLL versions, but the older DLL versions are converted to "forwarder" DLLs. That is if a program was written to use Libc062.dll, it needs to find Libc062.dll. When you have Libc065.dll installed properly, there will be a Libc062.dll, that forwards any requests to Libc065.dll. The same goes for the other Libc06x dlls. When (if) Libc066 is made available, I expect that it will replace the full Libc065.dll with a forwarder dll (but there is no guarantee that the whole thing won't change - you need to read the instructions.

There is another set of common dlls for GCC. Those do not forward. If a program needs GCC433.DLL, for instance, you must have GCC433.DLL available. It does not forward requests.

Having said all of that, I recommend getting ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/libc/libc-0_6_5-csd5.wpi and ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/libc/gcc4core-1_2_1.wpi which are WarpIN installers for what you normally need. Just download the files, and double click on them (one at a time), WarpIN will offer to install them for you. All of the files should be properly installed, with no guessing. Many programs use those DLLs.
