    I have ClickToFlash installed and recently I went to YouTube and attempted to view a video but all i got was a very ropey looking 'go upgrade' message instead of the video. If I click on it it takes me to Adobe site to update Flash. I updated but still no videos. I put YouTube on the Whitelist in clicktoflash but i still get the upgrade flash message.

    Does anyone else know what may be causing the problem?

    Lastest Flash, Click2Flash, Safari and SnowLeopard.

    Nope just clicktoflash. It worked one day then not the next. :confused:

    EDIT: Thinking about it though. Safari was recently updated wasnt it? Hmm. Maybe ClicktoFlash needs to fix a few bugs for the new Safari.

    Did you update click2flash? I have the latest Safari and it works fine.

    Latest version is 1.5.3.

    I'll uninstall it and reinstall see what happens.

    Edit: Uninstalled and everything worked. Reinstalled and it broke YouTube. I guess I'll have to suffer with Flash until ClicktoFlash is updated. :(

    Did you install 1.6b8, then quit and restart Safari? I can't imagine why it wouldn't work, unless you've blocked YouTube in ClicktoFlash prefs. I assume you're on Safari 4.0.5. Do you have this checked?

    This link is referred to in the previous link I posted.
    Github page for ClickToFlash
    If you've got 1.6b5, then you haven't tried the solution I posted earlier.

    Another option for youtube videos is to login to youtube (its free to register) then "opt in" for HTML5. The videos will play much smoother and won't run the CPU as hard.
