Flash videos not working

Since upgrading to Mac OS X Snow Leopard, I have noticed that certain flash videos would fail to load (for example, those on Metacafe). The problem was common to Safari and Firefox, but went away in a different user account on the same computer.

After some investigation, I trashed the ~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/ folder, and all is well again.
