You Tube playback on Fedora 14 (64-bit), Firefox 3.6.17

I was able to get You Tube files to play back video and audio, but now, when I go to play a video, I'm being asked to install the Flash plug-in (again). The only thing that changed was the installation of OpenOffice and a few native (Package Manager) games for my son. I removed and re-installed the Flash plug-in to no avail.

I read a few post which suggest running the 32-bit version of the plug-in, but I would like feedback before going any further.

I don't know when Adobe posted this, but perhaps you spoke too soon. I didn't get from your message that you had tried the 64-bit edition. Anyway, here it is:
Of course, there are no gaurentees (which I misspelled).
