It just showed basic HTML, no flash at all. I googled repeatedly, without success, until I wandered over to the Debian forums, where there is a thread on Iceweasel not working correctly. Various fixes were proposed for various problems and configurations, some worked for some, not for others. What worked for me was disabling AdBlockPlus on YouTube. That fixed the problem for me immediately. FWIW.
I have this infamous 'flash plugin crash' problem as well.
I tried disabling AdBlock and it didn't work. So, yours is a solution for you only.
Anyone else have any idea?
I find that I have to re-load the (Youtube) page in order to get the video to play but it has to be done on every video. This gets really annoying. I suspect this problem has been going on a while.
How come no one on here is talking about this (i.e. a solution)?
P.S. This is with Firefox but it sounds like it is the same with Iceweasel. I think that's because it's more a Flash problem. Probably the version and maybe it only happens with certain versions of Flash combined with certain versions of Firefox/Iceweasel? Don't know yet...
