Youtube problem with flash.

Today i tried to access youtube, to be greeted by "Go upgrade" when loading a video.
The link sends me to the Adobe Site to download Flash. I closed Opera, installed it, reopened Opera and youtube to find nothing had changed.

I even tried uninstalling the old version first, then installing this version.

Anyone else having this problem?

Not to get you worried but awhile back I caught a little virus trying to access a flash video and it also asked me to upgrade but the upgrade wasn't the flash but a virus.
Just to be safe I'd do a good full scan.

Same problem with an alternative browser? - FF or IE or Chrome?

I believe this is a recognised issue but I could use a bit of advice. Until recently I was able to play YouTube videos with no problem. Now I'm getting the following message on the YouTube site: "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player....
