I get the same thing, must have come in with a macos "update", but I don't have enough "karma" to upload a stupid image...

Google Chrome doesn't seem to have the same issue, and it uses webkit so practically the same as safari; I've since switched (having the menu-bar when watching video was just too annoying).

Which platform? I know in Chrome for Windows you can completely hide the menu bar. Did you try that?

It has to do with how Flash is handled, what version you have installed, and how your Mac is loading Safari. First ask this: -Does Safari (not google chrome) have the latest version? To check right click on any flash content, select about Adobe Flash Player 10 and it'll direct you to a page showing which version you have. -If it's not the latest download it and restate Safari afterwards. -Check a video now, if a problem still persists check to see how Safari loads up. -If you have Snow Leopard, go to Safari in the Finder, right click to Get Info and make sure "load in 32-bit mode" is unchecked. If it's not then check the box (this whole step is how Flash works with Safari, it works one or another).

I had this same exact problem, only worse is that ny dock showed as well. Try the steps I mentioned earlier and it should help, thats how it did for me at least.
