Is this supposed to work with HTML5? None of the new extra buttons appear and the video doesn't resize.

No, the video related functions (except the feature to download the videos in different formats) aren't available in the HTML5 beta player.

Will this change in the future, or are you waiting for it to go out of "beta", or is it simply impossible?

I'm sure it is possible, but it will require an important effort to reverse-engine and research the inner workings of YouTube's code in order to tweak it to support the script features. I also don't use it and it's a beta, so it is possible that it will be canceled without notice some day (like Cosmic Panda). Last time I tried to study it YouTube keep tweaking it almost every day, so the code worked one day and failed the next.

I want the script to support it (even if only to stop the "the script doesn't work, fix it" posts when YouTube uses the HTML5 player in some videos), but I don't really know when it will be ready.
