try updating your flash player.
Try using other Browsers too, like Firefox, Opera, Chrome. and see if the problem persists.

Windows 7 Home Premium
The same problem

I'm having the very same problem. I use Google Chrome. It just started 2 day ago. I don't think I've changed anything at that time. It's driving me nuts. Additional info: if I am dragging the time bar back and forth, I can see the video. but if it's playing... I jsut get green.

Same problem

I'm having the exact same problem as well. I had this happen about 3 months ago and eventually fixed it, but I cannot remember for the life of me what I did.

Windows 8 Pro w/MC 32-bit

I don't know if your problem is 32 vs. 64 bit browser but here is a discussion: Differences between IE 32-bit and 64-bit . I think you can only use the 32-bit browser for Youtube.
