    Do you have flash installed either as a standalone package or as part of *ubuntu-restricted-extras?

    You say other videos play, but are they flash or some other file type?

    Yes i can play flash video type videos from other websites..If you asking this ,i don't know exactly because i just started to use ubuntu but i didn't install flash from software center.I did install ubuntu-restricted-exras from terminal and i have Adobe flash player plugin for Chrome.Btw i am using 12.04 ..I tested it too.If i deactivate plugin i can't watch from others too so it seems flash working fine.

    I had joined the HTML5 trial on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/html5), resulting in videos NOT being played. Leaving the HTML5 trial (trial-and-error?) solved that.

    So ... what is your status on http://www.youtube.com/html5 ?

    Unfortunately nothing has changed.Actually i switced to html5 trial to see that is my flash problem but clearly my flash working fine.As i said before i can watch videos on other websites.The problem only in Youtube i couldn't figured out yet how to solve it.

    I searched my problem on my native language ubuntu forums and it seems some people have the same.One of them solved by using proxy for youtube but it didn't work for me...
