    One of the following steps should help.



    1. Install Adobe Flash Player.



        Restart computer. Relaunch Safari.


    2.  Enable Plug-ins


        Safari > Preferences > Security


        Web Content:

        Click in the box for "Enable Plug-ins".



    3. Check  whether you are currently  in  YouTube HTML 5 trial.



        At the bottom  left of the page  uncheck the box for


       "You are currently in the HTML5 trial".


    4. Reset Safari.


        Click Safari in the menu bar.

        From the drop down select "Reset Safari".

        Uncheck the boxes next to all items.

        Check the box next to "Remove all website data".

        Click "Reset".


    5. Turn off Extensions/Plug-ins if any that may interfere with Flash working properly.


        Safari > Preferences > Extensions
