Hey!

Can you tell me why that is?

I don't think Unity allows UDP in the web player.

Oh my that's absolutely horrible to hear and stupid beyond belief on Unity's part.

From what I read now it's technically not an issue but Unity's socket layer requests the crossdomain.xml with every UDP send/rcv and doesn't buffer it.

But I read photon plugin for Unity uses UDP to communicate with the photon cloud, and it works in the web player.. how is this possible?

It most likely falls back to TCP for the web player. I'm pretty sure Photon does both.
