    Hi

    I'm experiencing a bug on YouTube. When I pause in a video and then try to play again, sometimes the video won't start, even though it's fully loaded. Pausing and playing again won't help, the only thing that helps is to click somewhere in the timeline bar. It seems to happen both in Safari and Chrome. Anyone else experiencing this? I've tried to search for it but haven't found anything. Thanks!

    I experience the same in Safari on all of my Mac OS X computers. It doesn't really bother me too much though :)

    Just presumed it was a YouTube thing.

    I don't think it's a YouTube thing because I've never seen this on a PC. I work a lot with YouTube videos at the moment so it's really bugging me.

    I never experience it on a PC, just on Macs. But as it happens on every Mac I use, I guessed it was a Youtube/Mac thing.

    Have you tried Firefox? Seems to work OK for me in FF.

    I have the same issue while using Firefox, Safari, and Opera. It occasionally happens in Chrome.

    I've been having this problem since updating my Flash Version past 10,1

    I tried HTML5 on YouTube for about two weeks but it was still a bit buggy back then, and I think there was no fullscreen option. Has it improved?

    Try the YouTube HTML 5 trial, it seems to get rid of the problem. However, when you click to go full screen it only seems to go full screen in your actual browser window , and not the entire screen. ;(

    What does Apple have against Flash? HTML 5 may be the way to go but a lot of websites still use flash. This is responsible for a lot of annoying Safari crashes. Seriously WTF Apple?

    Considering Apple don't write Flash, I'd say it was more Adobe's problem. It's not for Apple to make Safari work with Flash, but the other way around.
