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

    3. Reset Safari.

    On March 1 Apple again blocked Flash Player for Lion and Mountain Lion:




    Wait for an update.

    If you're sure you've installed the latest version of Flash, take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test. For a "missing plug-in" error, start with Step 4.

    1. If you're getting a "blocked plug-in" error, then from the menu bar select


     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player Advanced

    and click Check Now. Quit and relaunch your browser.


    2. Triple-click the line below to select it:

    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
    Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu. A folder should open. If there is more than one item in the folder with the words "Flash Player" (not "flashplayer") in the name, open the respective Info windows, check the version numbers, and delete all except the latest. You may be prompted for your login password.
    3. Re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from this page:
    Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    4. If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
    Safari Preferences... Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked Enable plug-ins.


    5. Select

    Safari Preferences... Extensions

    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.

    6. In the Safari preference window, select

    Privacy Remove All Website Data

    Close the window. Then select

     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player Advanced

    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.
