Viewing YouTube videos in Opera 10.50

Everytime I tried to watch a YouTube video, the video region was replaced by the message "Old Flash? Go Upgrade!" with a link to Adobe. I finally found this thread on YouTube support explaining that you have to delete all YouTube cookies to get videos to play. Success. So far with Opera 10.50, I've had one lockup (w/ a pdf). It's still in beta, but the new features are worth the risk. Very smooth performance.

Problem returned. Summary of solution tweeted by Opera and available here. From the guy who found the workaround: This is a lame solution to "block" the videos to those who uses flashblockers, or adblockers, or etc.
