          Do you see Flash Player related files in in the Library > Internet Plug-in folder?

          If No, your installation is not successful. You need to install Flash Player again.

          If yes, go to Safari > Preferences.

          In the Security tab, select Enable Plugins and Enable JavaScript.

              when i go on youtube to watch a video it says blocked plugin so when i click on it it says this " The version of “Adobe Flash Player” on your system does not include the latest security updates and has been blocked. To continue using “Adobe Flash Player”, download an updated version from Adobe’s website." i didnt download from youtubes link to adobe, i went to adobe's actual website. i have tried everything i know how to do with this issue, i just recently switched over to mac from windows, am i doing something wrong? it says installation complete once i install but no items are in the internet plugin folder.

                There should definitely be files in your /Library/Internet Plug-ins/ folder.  Please make sure you are checking at the root of your hard drive and not in your user folder.


                When in Finder, press the Command + Shift + G key combination.  This should bring up the "Go to the folder" dialog.  Enter "/Library/Internet Plug-ins/".  Do you see Flash Player.plugin listed (or any other file with the word "flash" in it?)
