    yup. but i had to restore some settings in some software.
    btw, i dont know if its applicable in your case, but have you looked at applejack? there's a thread about it here.

    Got a solution for this!

    Quicktime>Advanced settings via System Preferences:
    Enable flash ought to be checked

    go to MIME settings and check use defaults! :D then restart safari and everything will play na :D

    thank you john for this!

    Got so nervous when my safari stopped playing video.

    I tried your solution and it worked very well.

    My safari is now back to its "regular performance"!

    thanks again!

    My Safari doesn't play videos as well (like the videos in apple.com). I followed the pieces of advice here, but still no dice..

    Go to Disk Utility and try repairing disk permissions.
