Do you have the "Incognito" Safari extension installed & activated the option to block embedded YouTube movies in Incognito's preferences?
Other Safari extensions?
If you tried all the suggestions from the starting of the thread , then there is a last option for you ,
Check the old java links on Terminal ..,
you see other links like " - > " from older versions of java to current JDK ,
unlink the older links
$sudo unlink < ur previous links here ( 1.5 or 1.4 ) >
quit safari and reopen again ,
It worked for me on my own research ,
I found the fix at:
It also works for Safari 5
"To fix the YouTube problem I went on YouTube’s forum areas and asked what was going on. Others reported it too, and the 3rd answer was the fix:
Open Safari preferences
Click on the Security button
Click on the Show Cookies button under the Accept Cookies area.
The next window has every cookie saved. Click on the Search field, upper right corner.
Type in YouTube. This should reduce the list to less than a page.
Click on Remove All.
Click on Done.
Make sure the 3rd button “Only from sites I visit” is the one selected.
Close Preferences. YouTube videos should play properly now."
It worked for me.
I have been struggling with embedded YouTube files freezing Safari since moving to Lion last year. This fixed it instantly and easily. Thanks so much! The only change is that with the current version of Safari, go to the Privacy tab in preferences (instead of Security) and click on "Details" to bring up a list of cookies.
Safari Reset option, which is one of the first things to try when trouble-shooting,
I'll be back if this works that simple.
Thanks for the TIP
RESETTING SAFARI WORKED

Hi, the same happened to me.
I'm quite impressed with the huge efforts that Apple has been made lately to annoy and upset their users.
As OS develops, more and more **** is added, and old but great stuff is removed.
What kind of stupid strategy are they into????
With the apple "boom" after the success of iPod's and iPhones, they forgot about the old and proud users and start thinking more "windoze" making our lifes impossible.
Don't screw with us!!!! keep us happy, WE make apple the best.
