I have the same problem! #-o Videos work fine on IE and Safari, but not on Avant regardless of rendering engine selection. If I turn off AD Blocker the videos load and play. Turn AD Blocker back on and I just get a black box. Any solution other than having to turn off AD Blocker each time I use YouTube and back on when I'm done? Thanks!!

Thanks for the fix bigC! Do you happen to know why the Video Download doesn't work on YouTube as well? :?: There used to be a drop-down box that would appear with the option to save the video. It no longer shows since YouTube did their "upgrade". I noted that Crazy_John also has a similar problem. Thanks for your help!

Correction: I was just searching YouTube and a few videos did not have the "Download Video(s)" box but I just viewed one that had the download box appear. Is this maybe a file type issue? Thanks!

I desire to download videos from http://www.01net.com/ and found the green download box didn't show up, so I switched to IDM and no success as well. Could it be some sites prevent their resources to be downloaded?

I see the green download box on all the Youtube videos I watch. However, turning Ad Blocker off and on to watch YouTube is a nuisance. I hope AB can correct this problem on their next release. Also putting *.adm.fwmrm.net/p/yt/as3/* and
*.s.ytimg.com/*.swf in Exception List does not work. You must turn Ad Blocker off in order to watch YouTube.
