    I'm not sure what changed, if it was an update or something I messed up. Now when I'm in Safari, an embedded YouTube video won't play. I'm not sure why this is. It loads the embedded player, but then the video just says it's starting but never starts, and pausing\unpausing doesn't play it, and the only way I can get it to play is to click the YouTube logo so it loads the video on youtube.com and then press play there. Seems quite odd.

    As a side note, the embedded videos play fine in Chrome and Firefox, so it's isolated to Safari since the last update (that minor update a couple weeks back)

    It's driving me nuts, so if anyone has any ideas\suggestions as to how to fix it, I would be grateful!

    Back in business! Would have been nice to hone-in on the issue without the inconveniences that follow a reset, but this'll do. Thanks guys! :)
