I am not sure, it's possible flash has not installed the plugin correctly... you could try reinstalling. Alternatively most browsers support HTML5's <video> tag, if you go to youtube's HTML5 Beta and try joining it, there is a fair chance you can see a lot of videos that way, some may not yet be converted to formats compatible with HTML5's video tag or whatever codecs the browser supports.
