Hi there, I wonder if somebody could help me with this problem: When i open you tube to watch any video, the video area itself remanis black and no play bar appears to me, wich means that i cannot play any video. same thing is happening on some other websites too. By the way, I am talking about an Imac 2011 27" running OSX Lion, where I have installed Perian 1.2.3, Flip4mac WMV and Flashplayer (hope this is useful info).

Thanks a lot in advance,
QUOTE Thanks

If you're using Safari click on 'get info', then change it to "use 32 bit mode" ....... That should do it...
