So I'm on Safari browser and video on sites like YT will not play unless the latest Flash version is installed. Why is this?? I have ClicktoFlash enabled so that it doesn't load automatically. I just get a black video viewer on YT.
If I disable ClickToFlash then the video works. But it's Flash video and I don't want that. With CTF on it should default to HTML5. This only happens when a Flash update comes out.It might be because you have ClickToFlash enabled that you get a black video viewer.
For testing purpose, go to Safari Preferences, disable ClickToFlash and test Youtube again.
since January 28, 2015, Youtube no longer uses Flash, but HTML5 instead.
If you right click on a video that you thought was Flash, you'll see "About the HTML5 player".

I personally have uninstalled Flash Player (and disabled CTF).
Yeah I saw the page like that when I briefly disabled CTF. But I figure YT is using Flash by default. Lots of sites still use Flash. I also have AdBlock installed and some sites like news sites tell me I can't proceed unless I disable AdBlock.I have no problem watching this HTML5 (not Flash) video, again I do not have Flash Player on my computer, and CTF is disabled.
I think that your right click capture shows that CTF is not disabled.

Sure, some sites still use Flash and you might need Flash Player for them.
But not for Youtube.
No worries. One thing that's annoying is that I can't skip ads that play before a video. With CTF enabled I didn't see the ads at all. They are very intrusive. Also I notice that when I load a YT page there is a red line going across the top of the page to indicate that the next page is loading.Yes exactly, forgot to say it, sorry.
