Why do I have to "click" on FLASH for video

Maybe I missed something lately but I have to click on FLASH in order to see video? Is there anyway around this?

Thanks

It's a good thing.

It keeps flash movies from starting up on background tabs and stops many videos from competing with each other on the same page.

Saves bandwidth too since you may choose not to watch.

You or someone who uses your computer has installed "ClickToFlash". Look under Safari in the menubar. Click on ClickToFlash, and in the menu that appears click on Settings. In the panel that appears there is a button to "Uninstall ClickToFlash".

God no, don't uninstall it! It's a godsend....

You can add websites you frequently visit and "trust" to display Flash in the ClickToFlash preferences (Menu Bar: Safari-->ClickToFLash--> Preferences) plus other options.

This is a Good Thing.
