Can't Play YouTube Videos On Safari
I can't play YouTube videos on Safari any more. I have noticed that I can play videos on Safari but not on YouTube. When atempting to watch a video on You Tube it won't finish loading. It appears to load at first evenutally stops before the video can play. I then receive the "Plug-in Failure" message.†I am using Safari 5.1.7 on Mac OS X 10.7.4. I believe I am using the latest version of Abobe Flash Player, which I downloaded when I first noticed the problem.

Safari :: Youtube Won't Play Videos On It
I have a Mac OS X version 10.5.8 and Safari won't play any youtube videos on youtube. However on some other sites linked videos will play. I've tried (multiple times) to uninstall and reinstall Adobe Flash Player to no avail.

Safari :: YouTube Videos Won't Play?
Lately I've been having trouble watching videos on YouTube. They stop and stutter a lot, to the point where I have to give up. At first I discovered that The Google had put me in their HTML5 beta program unbeknownst to me. That was causing some problems as well so I opted out of it for the time being. ¬†
I fired up Activity Viewer and saw that when I'm experiencing the problem the process called QTKitsever -(703) Safari Web Content is maxing out my CPU bringing my Macbook Pro to a screaching halt (note I checked a second time and the -(703) had changed to -(812) for some reason). Safari seems to work fine otherwise, but as soon as I go to YouTube and try to watch a video the process kicks in and my Mac chokes.¬†

Safari :: Won't Play Youtube Videos Properly
It's like 80% of the time, I would open a video on youtube and the video would seem to play normally. The buffering bar (gray bar) would move before the red one and the video plays normally. But around 20seconds to a minute after that, the video would stop playing and both the gray and red bars would be at the beginning of the video and the spinning thingamajig would be there and the video cannot be played at all. This started about 2 months ago. It progressed from only a few videos but now I can't even watch a trailer properly.
I have the latest safari version and everything in my mac is up to date.

Mac Safari :: 3.2.3 - YouTube Videos Will Not Play At All
I'm running Safari 3.2.3 and every thing works fine except when I go to YouTube. Sometimes I can play one video after which Safari crashes and sometimes it crashes as soon as I reach the site. I have the latest Flash 10.0.45.2 and I have been resisting upgrading to Safari 4 because of the problems I have been reading about that version until this problem arose just last week and seemingly only at that web site. I get a message asking me to send and report to Apple something about "Bad Access" and Kern Invalid Address." Is this a YouTube only problem because I have read somewhere about a patent issue on that site. There seems to be no such problem on that site when I use Firefox.

OS X :: Updating Safari To Play YouTube Videos?
The mac version I am using is os x 10.5.5 and currently using the safari 3.1.2. I wanted to update because my safari can't play YouTube videos. (I can only watch in Fire Fox.). This is the link I found but my mac is 10.5.5 so it's below the requirement. [URL]. Is it because of my mac isn't update enough? Cos I always ignore updates. Can I ignore software updates? Every time, when I switch on my mac, a window (see attachment) appears on the desktop.

OS X :: "Some" Youtube Videos Won't Play All The Way Through With Safari
this is a weird one. I come across videos on Youtube that will play for like the first 10 seconds, then they just stop. No more downloading...no activity on my internet connection at all. I can pull the slider forward a little and it will again play for another 10 seconds or so. But this doesn't happen on every video. Some videos play fine from start to finish...though if one is playing fine and I try to slide the video ahead the video stops and I can't get it to start up again until I reload the page. Ok, so I'm thinking it's the new Safari with Leopard, so I fire up Firefox and the SAME thing happens.

Applications :: Youtube Refuses To Play Videos In Safari?
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.

Safari :: Cannot Play YouTube Videos After Updated On IMac
I have an Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06 GHz Imac and I am running Snow Leoprad 10.6.8. The problem I am having is that since I recently updated Safari, I cannot run Youtube videos. Every time I try watching one, the page crashes. I know I am not alone here and I am surprised Apple has not approached this situation yet. I have tried running youtube videos on Firefox and have had no problems doing so, thus I figure it must be Safari. I've tried running safari in 32 bit mode and that is also not fine. I have emptied the cache and reset Safari as well but still no go.

Mac Safari :: Videos Won't Stream (eg Youtube) And Safari Very Slow?
1 - safari very slow to open pages and has been like this for weeks. I have seen a solution to change to 'opendns' under System preferences > network > advanced tab but I cannot see an option for that. I think this may be my problem as Google always opens quickly. Can anyone elaborate on this solution?
2 - Videos won't stream and just hang with circle (e.g on sites like youtube) which started about 1 week ago. Only thing I have done differently is watching megavideos on unknown site. I have tried the solutions given under other threads (e.g. deleting cache files and uninstalling and reinstalling adobe flash). This seemed to help slightly the first time I tried it but still took approx 60s to stream 1 minute video. Has now reverted back to not streaming.
