As others have mentioned, that's a missing feature in QtWebKit.

I recommend binding a key to open videos in a real video player like
mpv - see the FAQ[1] (9.) for details.

That's because that's an AUR package as well, and makepkg doesn't know
about the AUR. When using an AUR helper[2], that should resolve this
dependency for you.
