Thank you all very much!

32 bit works.

It was driving me crazy.

Strange btw how embedded YTvideos did work.

Help!!!

At the risk of sounding like an idiot.... I too can no longer watch YouTube videos via Safari. Could someone please tell me exactly how one "toggles Safari to 32 bit"?!?!?! This is supposed to be the solution, but I don't know how to do this. Thank you so much for your help.

Also, how will this change affect anything else?

Close safari of its running.

Got to your applications folder and right click on safari and select 'get info'.

There is a checkbox that says 'open in 32-bit mode'. Check that.

Pretty much won't affect anything. Maybe you'll have to live without any 64-bit extensions for a while.

I'm another user for which youtube stopped working in Safari. (Late 2006 Macbook w/Snow Leopard).

Using 32 bit mode fixed it for me.

For those interested in differences between running Safari in 64 bit vs 32 bit mode, this article at TUAW has some information. http://www.tuaw.com/2009/09/03/lost-...-snow-leopard/

I do hope someone is working on this - choose(Apple, Adobe, Google).

After switching to 32-bit mode, I had to restart my mini as well. I found that the videos played in Firefox, but now I have them back in Safari as well.

Me Too. I'm part of the world

This has been happening to me also.

32Bit mode solved it. However, before switching if I set the User Agent in the Develop menu to Internet Explorer that worked too.

Agreed!

WTF? YouTube / Flash problem has nothing to do with Apple.

Fact: Apple didn't update Safari this week.
Thus, if something goes wrong, it's server side, not Apple.

Some peope's irrational hate is really starting to piss me off.

I wonder if this has anything to do with having a graphics card or not.

This is a problem for everyone in our office as well. It seems some videos work, others don't.

Switching to 32-bit mode has fixed it for me. Others installed a Webkit nightly and said that helped.
