Ok.. Youtube works, but other websites that stream videos on websites like Viddler and the like WILL NOT load at all. I just get the gear loading symbol and nothing happens. Sometimes if I leave the page the video will show right before I leave.

I've done things said in these 2 threads I found so far.


I saw that I had the 10.5.8 Version of Mac OS X so I'm updating to v. 10.6.4 as we speak.

But i've been trying everything the last 2 hours and nothing has worked at all.

Any suggestions?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Just realized I need 10.6 to install 10.6.4

    So i'm running on 10.5.8

    Might be a good idea at this point to boot from your install disc and run Disk Utility especially since two browsers are involved and you've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash.

    Insert your install disk and Restart, holding down the "C" key until grey Apple appears.
    Go to Installer menu and launch Disk Utility.
    (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first from the installer menu)
    Select your HDD (manufacturer ID) in the left panel.
    Select First Aid in the Main panel.
    (Check S.M.A.R.T Status of HDD at the bottom of right panel. It should say: Verified)

    Click Repair Disk on the bottom right.
    If DU reports disk does not need repairs quit DU and restart.
    If DU reports errors Repair again and again until DU reports disk is repaired.
    When you are finished with DU, from the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Startup Manager.
    Select your start up disk and click Restart

    While you have the Disk Utility window open, look at the bottom of the window. Where you see Capacity and Available. *Make sure there is always 15% free space.*
