    so i know safari 5 had extensions that forced flash videos into html5 or quicktime, however these dont seem to be working on safari 6, or am i using the wrong one?

    i dont want to use chrome anymore, im trying to stick to safari only, but a lot of the sites i visit (wshh,rrt) contain flash non-stop so a lot of playback cant be seen. any recommendations?

    What are you even asking? If you want to avoid flash entirely, stop visiting these sites. If you want to block Flash then you'll have to wait for compatible Safari plug-ins to come out.

    It works with Safari 6 on Lion. So it's a Mountain Lion problem then.

    There are no plugins that can force a website's Flash video content to be played through an HTML5 player, unless the website itself has provided an HTML5 alternative. Extensions like ClickToFlash simply automate the process of using those existing alternatives.

    I don't know WSHH and RRT, but if their content is Flash-only and you want to continue watching that content, you're going to need Flash.
