Unable to play Youtube videos in Debian Etch

Linux Friends
I am unable to play YouTube videos in my Debian Etch. It shows an error message that I have either turned off Javascript (which actually isn't) or have old flash player. I have installed every package which contains the word 'flash' including swfplayer, libflash, gstreamer plugins. Still no solution. Please help me.

Have you installed a flash plugin for your browser?
