Question: I have a Apple Mac desktop and recently was unable to access any YouTube, movies, videos, etc because a "Blocked Plug-in" message comes up with no error message. It asks to upload Abode Reader, but upon completion of this the message is the same.

I have a Apple Mac desktop and recently can no longer access Youtube, videos, movies, etc because I get a message reading "Blocked Plug-in". There's no error message but it does say to upload Abode Flash Player and the problem will be solved. I do this but it doesn't fix the problem. What am I doing wrong?

Try using Google Chrome when you run into this problem. It's good to have a couple of browsers at your disposal anyway. I'm guessing this is a java issue which Safari won't run. Chrome has a built in version so it works without installing Java on the machine. That's what I've been told anyway and it works.

Let me add, that you can choose to install Java on your machine and then Safari will work with the plugin as well. But Apple has probably correctly determined that Java has too many security risks so it isn't automatically installed.

if you already downloaded the adobe flash player onto your mac and still getting that message that means you need to finish the installation of the flash player


you do this by opening a finder window and going to your downloads, find the flash player in here and then double click on it and follow the prompts to complete the installation.


after this is completed you will need to completely quit out of the web browser you're using then reopen it for the change to take affect and your issue should be resolved. if it's not you need to contact adobe their number is 800 642-3623. 🙂

I had the very same problem and had gone through several of the ideas suggested here. The advice given by iheartapple1970 worked for me! I had downloaded Adobe Flash Player, but had not finished the installation process. I can now play YouTube videos on Safari.


Thanks, iheartapple1970. Good luck solving your problem.
