Playing HTML5 video on fullscreen in android webview. Note: I did not write this, it has been taken from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15768837/playing-html5-video-on-fullscreen-in-android-webview

/**
* This class serves as a WebChromeClient to be set to a WebView, allowing it to play video.
* It works with old VideoView-s as well as the new HTML5VideoFullScreen inner classes.
* With VideoView (typically API level <11), it will always show full-screen.
* With HTML5VideoFullScreen (typically API level 11+), it will show both in-page and full-screen.
*
* IMPORTANT NOTES:
* - For API level 11+, android:hardwareAccelerated="true" must be set in the application manifest.
* - The invoking activity must call VideoEnabledWebChromeClient's onBackPressed() inside of its own onBackPressed().
* - Tested in Android API level 8+. Only tested on http://m.youtube.com.
