FWIW I have the same problem.  But this is Debian unstable, AMD64 (with some ugly hack to get flash 
to work at all).

It isn't flash, because the flash ads play (and other sites), it just the show videos that don't play.

There's an app for downloading youtube video to a file, maybe that can download the show and give 
you something to focus on for troubleshooting.
