Two questions:
1. Have you tried the flash package from the fedora repos?
2. are you using firefox that came with the installation, or did you download and install it separately?

I had this problem too, installed all the relevant flash bits, but no youtube (just a blank where the video should be) or planet_rock (just a blank strip where the player controls are).
I tried deactivating nspluginwrapper in firefox but no joy. However, yum deinstalling nspluginwrapper has done the trick!
Everything now works fine

It's a problem of firefox and flash plugin.
you will have to edit the plugin register file of firefox.
