    On Public Beta 2 on my Retina Macbook Pro, Safari YouTube videos ask for the latest Flash or Quicktime versions. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks in advance.

    YouTube works without flash like before. Maybe you had an old flash version installed.

    I have removed Flash, Youtube works fine.

    I have gotten the black screen with "Update to latest Flash/QT player" on some websites with embedded Youtube videos. It's irregular and happens just on a few sites.

    I don't care what content I may miss, I will never install Flash again. Hopefully it will die and disappear from the net soon.

    Thanks, but I'd rather not have Flash on my Macs. :)

    No, no Flash installed according to System Preferences. I definitely uninstalled it a while ago.

    Hmm, I did have ClickToFlash extension installed. It seems removing that solved the problem.

    Does anyone have a problem with the 2.0x speed or the 1.5x speed? The sound is distorted compared to Yosemite or even Google Chrome.

    How do you know if Flash is installed. I don't see it in my Applications.

    Thanks. I GOT it. Judging by the posts above, I apparently don't need it to run youtube videos. A bigger question is do I need it for my OS X operation?

    Yes, security issues. Flash is one of the main attack vectors used to get into your system.

    And battery drainage if you're on a MacBook.
    Flash is a battery hog!
