    Anyone else having issues with youtube videos not playing? It's been getting progressively worse for the last few months. I click a video and it just stays black and doesn't load. I have to refresh it like 10 times and then maybe it will finally play.

    any advice?

    You might try clearing your browser's cache and cookies. If that doesn't work, try restarting your Mac. The YouTube site is working just fine.

    It may be you have on older version of Flash installed. Go here to get the latest version.

    Or, if you are using Safari, you can skip Flash altogether and use the YouTube5 extension for viewing YouTube.
