You Tube: black screen & no video

I am using squeeze. Just recently You tube will "download" a video, but all I get is a black screen, with no video or sound.

Disable adblocker or any other addons or extensions in whatever browser you are using in Debian 6 and see if Youtube plays then.

Maybe I misunderstood your post. Are you saying download of youtube won't play in media player on desktop. Which media player are you using?

Do you have the proper adobe flash plugin installed and only that one?
That means package flashplugin-nonfree from the stock repo or package flashplayer-mozilla from debian multimedia and not some opensource... oddity like gnash or swfdec.
