YouTube will not work after Flash Player Update

A couple of days ago, I was asked to update my Flash Player to version . I did so, but ever since I have not been able to play YouTube videos. As I am a frequent user of the site, it is causing me some inconvenience, and it is also quite annoying since I cannot find a solution.

When I click on a YouTube video, I am presented with a green rectangle upon a black background. Majority of the time, I get audio, and very (very very) rarely, I can acutally watch the video.

The working videos present no correlation, therefore I cannot think of anything that is causing it.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player, and have tracked through various help sites, and found no answer.

Could someone help me?

Flash 10.1 has a new feature that uses your graphics card to speed up video decoding - it could be this which is causing the trouble.

Have you tried updating your graphics drivers to the latest version? I know there have been some issues with old drivers and this feature which cause the problems you describe.
