    I am already using adblock, adblock plus and glimmerblocker but I guess they got outsmarted as ads keep coming through..

    I am using safari 5.1.7 and a late 2007 macbook

    thanks to all

    The Youtube5 extension mentioned earlier works well and allows auto play.

    the problem with that player is that you cannot skip forward until the whole clip is loaded or am i missing something..?

    It does not work like that for me. I can only skip forward to what is loaded (the grey bar) but I don't have to wait for the entire video to load to skip.
