Video not working in Firefox (locally and on server)

Edit: Now everything is working. I still got the old version though.
http://www.creativeblends.tv

I am using Firefox 7.0.1.

[s]I just made this test page: www.creativeblends.tv/test-iframe[/s] and it works with webm on Chrome, with mp4 on Safari, but it does not work with ogv on Firefox, it just stays with the loader for ever, both: locally and on my server. I tried to add a video src="/assets/video/video.ogv" controls></video and it doesn't play either. The player seems to work fine then... I think. But what did I miss?

I got my .htaccess file:
AddType video/ogg .ogv
AddType audio/ogg .ogg
AddType video/mp4 .mp4
AddType video/webm .webm
AddType text/plain .srt

and I converted the ogv file with ffmpeg2theora (so it actually shouldn't be the compressor or anything either).

Anyone has a hint?

    Hey there,
    make sure you added webm to your Apache configuration, because otherwise the content is not delivered correctly to your browser:
    AddType video/webm .webm
    AddType audio/webm .weba

    Greetings
