Quite a number of players support youtube videos which are saved in flv container file format. You might want to try VLC Media Player or other players which support flv files mentioned in Best Free Media Player.

Make sure you install flash using the Firefox web browser, not Internet Explorer.

That is a good thought J.L. Different installations of Flash Player are available for IE, and non-IE browsers. For Firefox, you need to make sure you install the non-IE flash player.

Depending on the media player you decide to use, you may need to install a codec pack to play .flv files. Check out my article, "Understanding Codecs"

Check out the new Firefox, has improved video support.

I've not checked it out personally though!

You should not been having any problem watching youtube
videos on Firefox. Somebody said you probably dont have
the correct Flash for firefox, which you can get from here:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Download to desktop and install and you should be fine to
watch the videos.

I would wait for the final release of Firefox 3.6. Looking at the changes they have done to the browser, it really looks very good... like speed, video browsing and more... but its still in beta, and there are still some bugs and Mozilla keeps sorting them out.. with security patches and all.

Not recommended for average users.
