Not use what the problem is there,

as youtube does not usually present a problem when viewing video.

Meanwhile, while I'm thinking about the problem, it is never a good idea to post your email address in a public forum.
It is likely to get harvested and you will become the recipient of a whole bunch of unwanted emails.

If you want someone to email you, add your email address to your forum profile and enable the email option.

Still pondering your problem. Can you see other video on your MacBook?

What is your OS version? You might like to check with Adobe what is the latest Flash version for it and install. You can do it at
And I would install Flip4Mac just in case.
Does this happen on several browsers or on just one? These details may be important.
