    Hey all, I'm getting pretty annoyed at the inability of my macbook to play youtube videos all of a sudden. I first noticed it about 2 weeks ago. I tried updating Flash (3 times), didn't work. I tried the html5 trick, still doesn't work (audio is fine, video super choppy). I'm pretty fed up! I've never had such problems on my mac in 4 years. Why now? FWIW I'm using Leopard.

    Did you try the html5 solution offered by youtube? That didn't work well for me to. I know use a flashtohtml5 plugin for safari, which works great!

    What do you mean by inability to play Flash? Do the videos not load at all? Is is too slow or choppy?

    IT just has the error message -cannot play, download the latest version of Flash. Tried uninstalling whatever version I had and installing the new one 3 times and got nothing. HTML5 did not work either. That one only plays audio, video is ultra choppy (like nearly frozen). In all this, Firefox works fine.
