Hello, and sorry for answering so late.

Good catch, thanks. The video (it was just one video linked twice) was not in Ogg/Theora as one could suppose; it had FLAC audio instead. That's still a good format from the free software point of view, but not well supported by most web browsers and a little "fat".

I've added an Ogg/Theora version.
