Hi David ..
Uninstall the Flash plugin you have installed then reinstall new > Troubleshoot Flash Player | Mac OS
Launch Safari From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Empty Cache
Quit then relaunch Safari and try a video.
BTW... if you have the ClickToFlash extension installed, that can prevent Flash based video from streaming. It can also be installed as a plugin in /Library/Internet-Plug-Ins.
And check to see if Safari is running in 32 bit mode. Right or control click the Safari icon in your Applications folder then click Get Info. If the box next to: Open in 32 bit mode is selected, deselect, quit then relaunch Safari.

Thanks Carolyn, Thanks Linc
I tried every suggestion you made, plus others, to no avail.
Apple continues to break my heart. The sad fact of the matter is
that despite the fact that they make incredible hardware, their software
This is just the latest example.
After the Final Cut Pro debacle of last year, and the endless crashes with
Motion, I moved over to Adobe. (And despite a real feeling of affection for
Apple, I'll probably never come back. Their competitors simply make a
superior product. )
Now I'll move over to Firefox or Chrome and make my browser home
over with one of those guys.
I'm simply tired of dealing with Apple's crap.
I want their stuff to work, and it just doesn't.
It's too much work, too much time.
What a shame.

I'm not having any problems with Safari or any video...
At least try this...
Boot in Safe Mode
A Safe Mode boot definitely takes longer than a normal boot so be patient.
Once you see the Desktop click the Apple menu icon top left corner of the screen. From the drop down menu click Restart.
Try a video.
Safe Mode deletes system caches that just might help.

I watch YouTube videos in Safari with no problems whatsoever, on slower hardware than you have. Something is wrong with your setup. If you prefer not to make the effort to find out what it is, that's fine with me. I'll unsubscribe from this thread now.
