I am reading that there are problems in Java 7 for Mountain Lion.

I am not able to open any youtube or ASIC video clips. It says "blocked plug in" then has a black screen


Do I download Java JDK 7 then do I download the update JDK 7u11?

Will it then run on my mac and will I be in danger of security breaches eg trojans?


Seems like Apple are not supporting this and not offering any alternatives.

The salesman on line at Apple assured me that there would not be any problems or concerns in running Mountain Lion from 10.6.8 and I find youtube doesnt work


Thanks Trickietrev

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Youtube does not work on iMac
