Hello Apple Community,


Here's some technical Background:

  • Platform:
    • MAC OSX Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
    • Windows 7
    • Windows XP Pro
  • Safari 6.0.5 (7536.30.1) - MAC
  • Safari 5.1.7 (7534.57.2) - Windows 7
  • Safari 5.1.2 (7534.52.7) - WIndows XP Pro
  • Flash Player 11.7.700.225 - MAC
  • Flash Player 11.6.602.171 - Windows 7
  • Extensions:
    • MeasureIt 0.4.5 - Enabled
    • Firebug Lite for SAfari - Enalbed
    • Block YourSelf from Analytics 1.0 - Disabled
    • Lorem Ipsum 1.2 - Enabled
  • Security:
    • Fraudulent sites - Check
    • Web Content - Check
    • Internet plug-ins - Check
  • Additional Steps:
    • I just updated Flash again to the latest version MAC
    • I reset Safari back to defaults


This issue may be just my setup but I cannot figure out nor think of the appropriate question to ask to start to troubleshoot besides the one provided in this thread.


This is the web page I am having issues with Safari:

NOTE: This site is built using Drupal 6


I've tested this page on all other browsers MAC + PC and the videos load fine and play accordingly, even the preview poster displays


Testing the same page with Safari MAC + PC and I get a blank Flash screen but the YouTube logo still appears, see following image:Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 5.24.29 PM.png


Here comes the confusing part, Under HTTP I get the above blank Flash screen YET when I switch to HTTPS like so, the videos display and play as expected. Additionally, when under HTTPS all the other browsers DO NOT display the flash video.


I am able to play videos on YouTube's website.


Any help or guidance is much appreciated.


Thank you very much for your help,


Safari, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
