And I don't know much about Macs.  I know how you feel.

In order to play Flash format videos (eg YouTube videos), you must have the Firefox version of the Adobe Flash plugin installed. Unless you already have this specific version of Flash installed already, you will need to get the Firefox Flash plugin; see here.

If videos are not playing or you have a black or blank page........

    • Go to Avatar (or Me) → Preferences → Sound & Media
    • Make sure the “Enabled” checkbox to the right of the “Media” slider is checked
    • Check “Allow inworld scripts to play media”
    • Make sure you have updated both Flash Player and Quicktime.
    • Make sure that “Enable plugins” is ticked in Preferences → Network & Cache, else Flash Player or Quicktime can not be executed, and you may see a message saying: Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported browser is required for video playback.
