What website are you visiting? All you do is click Options or right-click on the NoScript "S" symbol.

The closest I can think of is to uncheck "Forbid Adobe Flash" in NoScript Options > Plugins.  This will automatically allow Flash even on untrusted sites.  It will also allow other flash content too, but I use Adblock Plus to block those.

Hope this helps.

Edit: Check "Apply these restrictions to trusted sites too" if you want to block all other active content on trusted sites too.

I don't believe you need to worry about allowing videos as such, by allowing the site in no script you should allow the videos for that site only. The exception to this is that the site doesn't get all its content from its site and commonly it will be loading the videos from a different site. In which case you need to allow scripts for that also.

Unfortunately with zero site information, we cant investigate to see if you need to do anything other than allow the site.

Globally allowing things is I feel leaving a big hole in your security.

Hi +AdDicT+,

Just keep it as it is, your general NS protection is guaranteed, do not whitelist things when you do not know the links are secure. Then it is  just a question of one click on the NoScript icon to make the video available and you can check the link as well, allow and watch the video. I also have an extension in Fx so I can easily download the video's onto my computer as flash files to be played in VLC Media Player - sometimes the second time you go there the content may not be there,

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Hi, Hi +AdDicT+.  I like the advice from David and polonus better than mine.  Personally, I don't uncheck Flash.  I click the placeholder like polonus does.
