    It just happened today. I noticed I can't watch YouTube videos because Safari is not making it show up. I think my Safari is having troubles because it can't produce Flash, and cannot play animated gifs :(

    Anybody else experiencing this? Please help.

    Thank you!

    I think no one got it. If I could just change the title to "SAFARI IS UNABLE TO SHOW .SWF FILES" then probably someone can help me :(

    You have to install plug-ins for safari, type safari on apple site on their search tool. then find the plug-ins button, you'll see available plug-ins you need to install on your safari windows..

    @enshong: Yeah I'm using Saft and Adblock for Safari. I disabled the Adblock for Safari and still I can't get .swf files to show up.

    @j6l_hanopol: I can't find the plug ins button via Apple's search :( Do you have any direct links please?

    I'm confused now.. Hehehe... Are you in Windows or Mac? I've experienced videos and pictures that aren't ads being blocked.. It might be Saft.. Try to disable Saft.. and restart Safari.
    In my case, I'm using Adblock too and the problem was the Ukrainian Ads subscription so I unsubscribed it..
    ^_^
    If nothing else works, reinstall Safari na lang.. Hehehe...
    BTW, I'm using Safari 4

    I uninstalled Saft and Adblock for Safari, cleared my Trash, restarted the iMac. When I opened Safari again upon restarting, the message "Saft is missing. Please install Saft.app in your app folder" appears. But I already removed Saft totally? :( Probably that's the one causing the problem. Where can I totally remove Saft's remains? And where can I download the Safari 4 and can I use Adblock for Safari and Saft with it?

    I can use Adblock in Safari 4.. As for Saft, I have no idea kasi I don't see much use for Saft's features..
    Here's the instructions on how to get Safari 4.
