For years the Danish Broadcasting Company have been petitioned to stop using Flash video and use HTML5 video instead. Now they're finally beginning to listen to their users, which is great - especially if the built-in SFOS browser could play them.

An example is this page, which plays fine in normal desktop Firefox, on Chromium, and on mobile Firefox for Android (running under Alien-Dalvik).

In the stock browser, it just searches for a while, then errors out with "No compatible source was found for this media".

The Sailfish browser is really, really old, so lots of things just don't work at all anymore. This probably also explains your other question about JavaScript menus: those sites made some changes and the outdated Sailfish browser is no longer able to interpret them correctly.

Unfortunately, a lot of web pages don't work in Sailfish browser. Jolla should update it soon to fix this issue
