Try repairing disk permissions.
Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 9, 2010 8:19 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)Carolyn, I've now tried repairing permissions three times and still the same thing with embedded YouTube videos: an error occurred, please try again later. Incidentally, each time I repaired permissions it told me that the permissions were repaired, but the next time the same list of things that need repairing came up.
On my original post I listed everything that I've tried. What would you suggest next?
Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2010 6:44 AM (in response to goChickenboy)I still can't get embedded YouTube videos to play. Anyone have any ideas?
Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2010 7:13 AM (in response to goChickenboy)The following solved the same problem for another user.
Uninstall Flash Player and reinstall the latest version:
The latest version of Adobe FlashPlayer can be obtained from here:
(You can check here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/ to see which version you should install for your Mac and OS.
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
and also that you follow the instructions closely, such as closing ALL applications first before installing. You must also carry out a permission repair after installing anything from Adobe.20" 2.1GHz iSight iMac G5, 250GB HD, 1.5GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iLife 9 but iMovie 6, QTPro 7.6.6, Safari 5

Currently Being ModeratedJun 22, 2010 1:35 PM (in response to dheiber)Yeah. Didn't work for me either. I uninstalled Flash and then re-installed it. I even tried deleting the com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist and com.apple.Safari.plist files again. It still allows me to play YouTube videos, but if they're embedded it give me an error message: An error occurred, please try again later.
Any other thoughts?

/Users/your Home folder/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player

Currently Being ModeratedJun 22, 2010 3:42 PM (in response to dheiber)I don't have ClickToFlash installed either. Like dheiber, my Firefox will play embedded YouTube videos. What's up with my Safari?
Currently Being ModeratedJun 23, 2010 11:48 PM (in response to goChickenboy)I've gone through the fixes here, with no luck. But then I went to Safari->preferences, Security tab, "show cookies" button. I typed youtube into the search, selected them all, and removed them. The embedded videos worked right away. I accept all cookies, also. Hope that helps someone else!Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 25, 2010 10:36 AM (in response to EricJohnson68)Hey worked for me too. Thanks. Wow, weeks of frustration and such a simple fix.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 4, 2010 2:51 AM (in response to EricJohnson68)I've had the same prob in Safari 5.0.2 for months, with ONLY embedded YoutUbe content.
Finally orted it after trying all the various fixes, including Flash plug/playa reinstall (it's not that).
It's the cookies. Bit of a pain but just delete them all and try again.PowerMac G5 Dual 2GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2010 9:10 AM (in response to EricJohnson68)NEITHER this trick (nor the folders trick, nor installing the latest version of Flash) does it for me in Safari 5.0.2. Any bulletin board that has "YT" tags are incompatible with Safari. The videos don't even show up. Just a big empty space. This doesn't happen with Firefox.2008 Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 8GB RAM
