accessing Youtube video controls in Firefox

Hi everyone.

I'm having a problem accessing the video controls in Youtube using my
screen reader.

I'm using Firefox 15, and I have installed the latest version of Flash

When trying to access the video controls, JAWS says:
"Flash start
flash end"

while NVDA says:
"embedded object unavailable"

When I use IE, both JAWS and NVDA can read the video controls e.g. Play,
mute. But I nonetheless prefer to use Firefox.

I'd appreciate any suggestions you could give.

Thank you very much.
