What is the current situation with FP on the Mac? Is it still a crock, if so what is the best way to simply view YouTube? I have tried downloading HTML5 but am too dumb to comprehend how to implement it or how it helps- does it run with Flash or does it replace Flash? Which flavour of HTML5 Video Player is simplest?

Since upgrading to 10.8.2 there's the chance to make a fresh start with video on YouTube; can someone school me?

You don't "download HTML5" -- it is a web technology, not an app.

You can simply install a Safari extension (or Firefox extension if you use that) to automatically change the default YouTube player to HTML5.

You can also (and should) keep your Flash up-to-date on your Mac. Latest version came out yesterday.

Better yet, simply join the HTML5 beta here - saves you the trouble of installing anything.
