can't view videos on youtube

I admit I have dial-up which I know is slow, but I was able to view videos at one time. I have windows vista, adobe flash 9.0.124.0, computer only 9 months old. All I get is a black screen where video is and circle going round and round.

Hi. It's YouTube, most likely, and not your connection. I have broadband, and have noticed YouTube videos failing to load or being very slow to load. Only in the past couple days has it improved. I have speed tested my broadband connection, and it's fine. So, I think the problem lies with YouTube. Go to another video site like http://www.metacafe.com, and see if you have the same problem.
Sorry, since I know that doesn't really help.

Well, Moes, I could view that site just fine....I did notice a pop up from flash asking if the site could use 10kb of my computer memory or something like that...maybe i need to check settings when I go back to youtube. I wonder, since I'm in U.S. , does it matter on youtube if the video originated overseas?
