I'm running the lastest wheezy image and am trying to run 236kb webm video on loop with the Midori browser (launched in kiosk mode from lxde on login) and gstreamer plugins. The page also has a 7kb javascript and 76k of image assets but the video performance is appalling. I have tried a 256mb memory split and overclock to 800Mhz but this does not seem to improve the browser's video rendering capabilities.

Does anyone know how to force GPU rendering of a webm file in Midori? Alternatively, is there a better browser or plugin set that will utilise the GPU for such a project?

EDIT: I have now tried iceweasel (slightly better but still laggy) and Chromium (version 22.0.1229.94 debian 7.0 161065) which claims not to support any of the mp4,webm,ogg video elements
