    I've noticed lately in various different threads what seems to be a lot of "blank" posts. I thought nothing of it until I tried to post a YouTube video and my post showed up with nothing to view. I had a reply where another poster says he can see and play the video.

    Might it be a Browser issue/settings issue on my end?

    FWIW I use Firefox on a MacBook

    i thought flash had finished and gone to html5 ? might be something else has finished though .. i used to get ones not playing because of not having html5 with my browser until i found out how to add it .

    Well I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version of Flash and that didn't work. I messed around with the settings in Firefox and when I unchecked "private browsing" it all worked again.

    Sounds like you know what you're doing thanks for looking into. In the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal

    Can you play videos on Youtube itself?
    It sounds like a plugin/extension problem. Youtube doesn't use Flash anymore, so there should not be any Youtube Flash plugin, or it should be disabled.
    Do you have a lot of plugins?

    Thanks to all who chimed in and helped. It was indeed a Firefox issue which I've since addressed everything seems to be working fine now
