Hi. I have a macbook pro from 2010, I am still using snow leopard (10.6.8).

It was always hard to play youtube videos on Safari but I was able to get it work smoothly on Chrome. Then starting 2-3 weeks ago I cant open youtube site in any browser at all (safari, chrome, firefox..).

When i typed the site address and enter, all the browsers start like they might open the homepage, the loading bar in the address part starts a little but it waits and waits and never load more than that. Sometimes I get the "failed to open page" message at last (mostly on Safari). So I cant seem to make youtube work on my Mac. And adobe flash seems up to date so it shouldnt be a problem.

I encountered a discussion like this and it was advising to go 'hosts' file and delete the 'youtube.com' lines, I tried it but even i gave all the permissions -it wasnt permitted to make changes- to hosts file, it never saves any changes (it has another problem on that file to make changes i think). So i couldnt get it done that also. Does anyone have any idea about this? Thanks. 

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
