This is my first install of mac, I am running snow leopard on a hp g60-635dx and followed the guide here to install. Everything during the install went fine but yet when I go to attempt to watch a youtube video I only get audio and when I try and watch a dvd I get the error "A valid video device could not be found for playback [-70017]". The only other thing not working is the HDMI port on the laptop, but that isn't as big of a deal. Any help would be great, thanks in advance.

There is nothing you can do about that, OS X does not support hardware acceleration on the GMA 4500 in any shape or form. There are no drivers for it.
