When trying to play SOME YouTube movies, I get an error message that says: "an error occurred, please try again later" (it never plays 'later'). I checked the finder-windows-activity pane as ordered and found 6 of around twenty lines that had red "forbidden" .

What gives?

    Hi,

    Follow the instructions here for troubleshooting Flash which is required for most YouTube content.

    Click here: http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/

    Then click: Troubleshoot Flash Player | Mac OS

    Hi,

    Login to another user account. Try that video on Safari there.

    I'm not sure if it's a 64/32 issue or not. I run Safari in 64 all the time without any problems with YouTube / Flash plugins
