    Anyone else having problems with YouTube? I'm using the current version of Lion and Safari. When I try to watch a video, it won't load. It will start playing the first few seconds, just shows back, then goes back to the beginning and tries again.

    I re-installed the current version of Flash, so that's not it. Any other suggestions?

    One thing you can try is to go to and check if you are in the html5 trial. Leave the html5 trial and check if that fixes the problem.

    You can also install Chrome which comes with it's own version of flash. Youtube is currently making a number of adjustments to its video streaming system, and quite a few people have reported performance issues and other problems recently.

    Thanks, that did it. Seems like I had to join the html5 trial, then leave it. Seems to be working better. Very odd. But thanks.
