JDK 8u72 (1.8.0_72-ea) makes a big difference here.
Using 8u66 I was not able to see any HTML5 videos on youtube, they all
reverted to Flash.
8u72 makes it all work, last time I checked I was unable to find a video on
youtube which did not work.
You can download 8u72 at https://jdk8.java.net/download.html
Best regards,
