Midori doesn't support multimedia?


I installed midori on the raspberry pi 3 and visited https://html5test.com/. It seems midori doesn't support multimedia and has a very low html5 score.

Is there anything I can do to improve midori multimedia functionality?
Thanks

First things first, it says "you are using Midori 0.4" but the current Midori version is 0.5.10. You are twenty versions behind according to http://midori-browser.org/changelog/ ... why are you expecting such an old version to have compatibility with modern websites??

Second, I notice the Midori FAQ has a lot of tips about video/multimedia. Which of these suggestions (if any) from the FAQ have you tried so far? http://midori-browser.org/faqs/

I just run "apt-get install midori". I would assume the latest version was installed by default.

I would also assume "apt-get install midori" would pull any plugins required to play web multimedia. As all modern browsers do.
I don't know maybe I'm just crazy like that. You know, for assuming these things.

Interesting assumptions! Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
