Hi and Welcome. I look forward to assisting you today with your question.On your Mac, open your hard disk Macintosh HD (or Mac HD). Open Library folder. Open Internet Plugins folder. In there, delete all files related to Flash or ShockwaveThen in there, open the Disabled Plugins folder, then trash all files from there.Then download and install latest Flash Player from here : http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.
I no longer get the "blocked plugin" message but videos still don't play. Do I empty the trash first and do I have to reboot?
YouTube works but other video sites do not. On those I still get a blocked plugin message.
Now they have a Flash plug in in the center of the video scream. I clicked it and downloaded again. The video still doesn't play. How can it be that YT runs but the other sites do not?
CNET for one.
Not sure, but Youtube won't work without Flash Player. We can uninstall Flash Player with Flash Player uninstaller and then reinstall it againDownload and uninstall Flash Player with Uninstaller from here : http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/support/uninstall_flash_player_osx_10.4.dmgDownload and install Flash Player from here : http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/After uninstalling, delete the following files/folders:Macintosh HD\Library\Internet Plug-Ins\Flash Player.pluginMacintosh HD\Library\Internet Plug-Ins\flashplayer.xptMacintosh HD\Library\Preferences\Macromedia\Flash Player\Macintosh HD\Library\Caches\Adobe\Flash Player\If you can't find any files, Ignore them. Make sure you close the browsers before uninstall Flash Player.Then install the latest version of Flash Player. Did that work ?
I am utterly confused. I downloaded he uninstaller but where the hell is it? I still have the Flash installer icon on my screen.
Yes. Found it. And, I trashed the multiple Flash install files as well. I'll do a new install now.
Okay. I installed it again. But it's the same situation. YT works but other sites do not. So you're suggesting that I use a different OS? That's not why I own a Mac. And, I don't know if I have the space for two OSs. Why would I never have this problem before with earlier versions? And, if Flash works on YT why would it not work on other sites?
However I'm willing to try this.
Okay, Ashik. I installed Chrome and the videos work. Thank you for your help.
Ahh...Sorry. I didn't see your last post. Chrome will work too. The great thing about Chrome or Firefox is, there are hundreds of cool plugin out there for them. See here : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions?hl=enFor Firefox, see here : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/
Since the videos work in Chrome, I believe that the problem is with Safari browser. Safari is not yet updated for latest Flash Player. So make sure you do all updates from Apple > Software Updates.
