    My wife's Air suddenly stopped playing YouTube videos. When you select a video the video screen is just black. Everything else seems to be ok. I tried running Onyx to check permissions and clean up but it didn't help. Any ideas what would cause this? :eek:

    Try re-installing flash.

    Or, go to http://youtube/html5 and enroll in the HTML5 demo program, and never worry about it again.

    Yeah, agree completely with above post. Sounds like flash got screwed up and needs a reinstall. But enrolling in HTML5 is the best bet. Also, get clicktoflash and install it. I've noticed battery life go up at least an hour when not using flash on the MBA.
