Hi,

First post on the forum.

I have a three year old white MacBook, using OSX 10.6.3, and am using a mini DVI - VGA adapter to connect an external monitor to it. I also use a mini DVI - HDMI adapter to connect the MacBook to my TV.
Some days ago i realized that I no longer could watch embedded videos, like Youtube, on the external screens using Safari.
Either the area where the movie is supposed to play remains black, or it freezes during the first frame. Sound keeps rolling though.

I tried out Firefox and discovered that the problem didn't appear there. I haven't done anything special with Safari that could be the reason for this. I do have Glimmer Blocker, but it's turned off.

Anyone have an idea what could be the cause of this?
QUOTE Thanks

I would start by removing GlimmerBlocker completely just to be certain that there's no chance it isn't the problem, disabled or not. If it isn't, reinstalling it is no biggie.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

If you are trying to run them in Quick Time X then have a look in Applications/Utilities and open Quick Time 7 - they will probably run in that OK

Hi again.
Thanks for your replies.

Uninstalled GlimmerBlocker but it didn't help.

Don't quite understand how to open the Youtube videos in QT. Used "Open URL" and pasted the adress, but that didn't work.

Maybe I should just uninstall and reinstall Safari.
Any other ideas?

You could try installing this to see if it helps.
