Do you have flash installed? And flashblock? The latter often
causes problems at youtube. It argues with FF what is allowed and
what not, causing a race condition, trying html5, and if this
fails, as there is no flash support (because it is blocked), then
fails completely.

I have Flashblock 1.5.19. According to the docco, that is what
causes the "Do you want to allow ..." message. So why does it
work with others but not Youtube?

I guess because YT tries to detect what you have available, flash
and/or html5. If it tries flash first, as it is blocked, it thinks you
don't have it, so it turns to html5, which not all videos have it, and
then it fails. Sometimes it plays audio, no video. You have to restart
the video (rewind), sometimes it works. Others, reload page.

Well there's a "whitelist", but i have my doubts.

Simpler to turn it off.

You can turn it off automatically on youtube. It is simple to do.
