    you're doing something wrong, I have no problem.

    Are you running the current version of Safari? Also, you might want to go get the latest Flash player at macromedia and install it.

    Good luck!

    The QuickTime plug-in also plays Flash content just fine.

    that's super for quicktime, but for browsing round the web swapping from browser to vid app isn't exactly quicktime, unless you are useing explorer and don't need to swap. there is me trying to expell the evil gates (which i know is a joke cos microsoft have bought into apple) but still; in trying to understand how this machine works i sort of want to have flash 7 separate in my system so i can download swf files via P2P explorer safari or simply that stoneage method ON Disk. All this "it's so easy install" takes control over method. So what we see is a Microsoft-Apple deal microsoft takes itunes and apple takes explorer and both systems are rigged so you have to be an AI logic programmer in order to make your own choices. hmmm microsoft really have bought into apple or am i seeing apple buy into microsoft.
    love and peace

    ie and safari as well as all the other browsers, use the same plug-in. You will be able to find it in Library > Internet Plug-Ins folder. What I would recommend is deleting any shockwave or flash files from that folder, remember that there are two Library's, the root library, which you can modify as long as you are the admin, and the user library. After you delete those files, go and reinstall it, that should fix it. I am using safari with flash, the latest, and it works fine.
