    Hello,

    I don't know what's wrong, but for some reason, YouTube videos are not playing.

    I've had issues with video playback stopping after a few seconds with the video acting as it's over, and this behaviour started to happen more frequently (especially in fullscreen mode) before today when the videos stopped working entirely, with the exception of a few videos (which is strange).

    I have done the following but to no avail:

    - Disabled the HTML5 trial
    - Uninstalled Flash/Re-installed
    - Emptied Cache of all my browsers
    - Deleted all cookies including the infamou nocookie-youtube.com
    - Tried Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera
    - Restarted router

    I'm running out of ideas here... :/

    I'm running OSX Lion on a MacBook Air late 2011 model.

    Thankful for all help

    Open System Preferences->Flash and delete all the Flash cookies by clicking on the 'Delete-All' and deleting all the flash cookies you have. See if this helps.

    Also, embedded YouTube videos that I'm viewing on other sites seems to be working. It's only if I access the videos from youtube.com....

    Have you tried creating a new user and seeing if the problem exists there?
