    Embedded YouTube videos used to work fine up until a few days ago but they have stopped working in all browsers. I use Safari, Firefox and Netscape Navigator.

    I am using Mac OS X (10.6.3) and have just conducted a software update and installed a fresh version of flash. This can't be a browser problem because it is not working on any of the browsers. I am having problems viewing embedded YouTube videos on such sights as Blip.fm, etc but they used to work fine a couple of weeks ago.

    Is this a problem with flash? or Mac OS X?

    Nope. It's not a popup issue in any case, because the embedded videos don't play on the main browser page. Plus, I haven't installed anything new, except for the Software Update. The videos were working fine until a few days ago but then suddenly stopped working. They are not working on any of the browsers (Safari, Opera, Firefox, or Navigator). When I try to play a YouTube embedded video, it doesn't load and says "An error occurred, please try later" in the black screen of the embedded video. I have installed a fresh new version of flash, restarted my Mac, reset the PRAM and NVRAM, and also reset SMC. Nothing seems to be working.

    Me too. I have this problem ever since I upgraded to 10.6.3 after.

    got the same problem

    Got the same problem

    - Embedded videos of many sites (YT, Dailymotion...) not working (black or empty videos placeholders)
    - All browsers are affected.
    - Problem started with Flash upgrade on macos 10.6

    SOLUTION that worked for me:

    Trash the /Library/Preferences/Macromedia folder and restart the browser.
