How can I fix green screen and no audio problem watching YouTube videos on Mac?

Anonymous March 22, 2014

YouTube videos will play for about 45 seconds then the screen turns green and no audio. I have checked and unchecked the “enable accelerated hardware” box as suggested in many forums to no avail.

OSX 10.6.8. it does it in Safari as well as Firefox.

    Thank You for your responses to the green screen video issue! Updating Flash Player ( seems to have fixed it.

    Thanks again,

    install all the latest Software Updates
    make sure you are using the latest version of Flashplayer.
    make sure you are using the latest version of Firefox

    if the issue still persists, again, right-click the video and uncheck hardware acceleration within the Flashplayer settings
