    Safari and Firefox are displaying this on every video I try to play from youtube, but not from other websites. This happens on both my iMac and my MBP.

    Is it something with my internet provider?

    Not sure why this is, have you tried the obvious resetting you mac? Making sure you have the most up to date version of flash?

    Everything is up to date. This problem still isn't fixed... I think it is my internet provider's fault.

    once i had a problem that youtube would only play for 5 seconds and then stop.. i updated software and it took care of it.. that's i suggested that..

    But it's weird it works on other sites...

    Why do you think is your internet service?

    Go here to test your bandwidth..

    Let us know how's your bandwidth does it drop thru the process? How much bandwidth are you getting?

    Oh yeah, I did that after searching google for solutions to the problem I was having. Its all good now, for some reason. Pretty sure its Roger's fault. I tested and got 8.9 for download and 0.51 for upload. That was actually surprising because I'm only signed up for a 6mb line. Thanks for all the help.
