Hulu works for me but the youtube problem is a known but that firefox seems to be dragging their feet when it comes to solving.

The cookies and acceleration "fixes" are poor trade-offs.

A lot of people seem to have this problem, and there isn't any one magic solution, since there are multiple causes for Youtube not working.

I have Real Player installed on my computer, and because of that, there's a extension/plug-in enabled on Firefox. RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin 15.0.2 is the title, and I found it under "Extensions" in the Add Ons Manager. Disabling it allowed me to watch Youtube videos and listen to audio on Tumblr.

If you have RealPlayer, go to the Add Ons Manager and look through "Extensions" and see if you have "RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin 15.0.2" enabled. If so, disable it and see if the problem is fixed.

If not, check out this question right here. There was a lot of useful information.
