     At random times, YouTube will stop the video I'm watching. Say I am 5 minutes into a video. It would stop the video, saying the total video length is 5 minutes, and would display the normal suggested video screen. It gives me an option to replay the video, and it stops in the same place. If I reload the page it plays again, but sometimes it still stops. Help?

    One of the following steps should help.

     

     

    1. Install Adobe Flash Player.

     

        http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

     

        Restart

     

    2.  Enable Plug-ins

      

        Safari > Preferences > Security

     

        Web Content:

        Click in the box for "Enable Plug-ins".

     

     

    3. Check  whether you are currently  in  YouTube HTML 5 trial.

     

         http://www.youtube.com/html5

     

        At the bottom  left of the page  uncheck the box for

     

       "You are currently in the HTML5 trial".

     

    4. Reset Safari.

     

        Click Safari in the menu bar.

        From the drop down select "Reset Safari".

        Uncheck the boxes next to all items.

        Check the box next to "Remove all website data".

        Click "Reset".

     

    5. Turn off Extensions/Plug-ins that may interfere with Flash working properly.

        

        Safari > Preferences > Extensions

     

         Now try YouTube.

     

    Best.

    Hi Lord A --

     

    Do you have AdBlock or GlimmerBlocker, or similar app on there?
