    Just recently I've noticed that my macbook no longer plays youtube videos. Everything works fine, but there is a black box where the video should play. I upgraded my flash also, but that didn't correct it.

    I'm hoping some techies can help me with this one!

    You mean embedded videos or actual ones _on_ YouTube?

    embedded videos from youtube posted on other sites work fine. However when I visit youtube.com nothing works. icon_eek.gif

    Is this happening in Safari? Firefox? Has trying another browser worked?

    Found this on a help forum - maybe this is the solution for you:

    "quit safari
    right click on safari
    get info
    open in 32bit mode
    reopen
    it will be fine afterwards

    the new flash update is affecting the 64bit mode of a lot of macs/safari/youtube it seems."
