10.7: HTML5 Video Display Sleep Workaround Web Browsers
The just released OS X 10.7.3 has a new Safari version but the old FDisplay Sleep Issue on HTML5 Video was still not fixed, so I started to look around for a solution and it seems that it is a WebKit Bug, and I made a workaround for this.

Go to the WebKit Project home page and download the latest Nightly Build; it has worked for me so far.

Put it into your Applications Folder and launch, and the browser launches as Safari containing all settings and features, so go to Settings and make WebKit your default browser.

Next download and install the RCDefaultApp PrefPane launch it and go under the application pane to WebKit and enable all file associations and actions.

Safari is no longer the default, now go to the Extensions Pane and search for the safariextz Extension, set it to open with WebKit as well, now you are done, Safari is still there and running if needed, but all actions are now redirected to WebKit, so you are always up to date.

[crarko adds: I haven't tested this one specifically, but many of us have used the WebKit nightly builds as a Safari replacement for a long time. RCDefaultApp is also a well-tested and proven utility, and I recommend it without hesitation.]
