    I am not sure why my Safari doesn't play videos like the ones in apple.com...

    I tried searching for the solution in the other threads, followed the tips, but still no success.. I'm getting frustrated because I cannot uninstall the damn Beta version because I'm not sure what will happen if I uninstall it.

    Help...

    For bookmarks, use Allbookmarks and you can view all your browser bookmarks from the menu bar whichever browser you're using (Safari, Firefox, Camino, etc.).

    I installed Safari Beta 3.0.3 this morning. After reading this thread I tried playing the iPod nano ad from the apple website.

    It turns out that the video is being downloaded, however the progress of the download isn't shown.

    well the video still doesn't show up.. could it be possible that it's the fault of plug-ins?

    Yey. I got the solution from the apple forum.

    Get Info on the Safari app.
    Remove the check mark to use Rosetta.
    Quit and relaunch Safari and try the page again.
