    Sometime recently (post-Sierra, but unfortunately, I can't remember exactly when) I started having problems viewing streaming video. Many video sites, including YouTube, show multiple controls -- with the Safari native player controls below the those of the site's own player. (See attached.) Sometimes I am able to get the video to play, and sometimes I can't.

    - I don't have Flash installed at all on this browser.
    - The problems continues with *all* plug-ins and all extensions disabled.
    - And but I have been running the latest MacOS betas, and am currently running Safari 10.1.2.
    - It does not happen with the Safari Technology Preview (

    I would welcome any suggestions about what is causing this, and how to resolve it. Thank you!

    Thanks headlessmike, appreciate your response! Unfortunately, the issue isn't limited to YouTube, and your suggestion didn't seem to help. I see it on streaming videos across multiple sites. I've attached a screenshot from Twitter, as well.

    Helpful to know that someone else is dealing with the same issue, so thanks for directing me to the other thread, as well.
