Hey Guys!

I recently upgraded my Safari to the new Safari 5. I seem to have a strange problem though: when I download video (such as things from YouTube) the page downloads but the frame for the video doesn't appear and there is no video. I can't see that any of the Preference settings are wrong - or indeed anything else. But I cannot get the video to appear. Grrrrr.

Any one got any thoughts on this? Or how I can wind back to Safari 4? I can't see anything on the Apple website. Maybe a visit to a Genius is needed. But, damn, Wetpixel is full of geniuses. Or is that geniei?


:D

It's probably a Flash issue. Try upgrading to Flash 10.1, or enable HTML5 on YouTube (don't enable HTML5 if you use Firefox a lot, though -- you have to have a dev version of Firefox that supports WebM).

Lots of people seem to be having the same problem. Maybe it's the latest installment in the war between Apple and Google...

Many thanks, Eric. Much appreciated. I didn't find this thread when I searched

Nothing is ever simple eh. Grrr. How can Apple have got this upgrade so wrong?
