Flash Player doesn't work on Power PC Mac OS 10.5.8?

Is there a workaround for the absence of support from Adobe for my Power Mac G5, Power PC, 10.5.8? I used to get the option to "use original player" but YouTube doesn't seem to do that anymore, so all I got this morning is a black screen where a video should be.

Flash Player version 10.1.102.64 is the last version available to PPC Mac users. However, this Flash version won't work for many videos on Facebook, YouTube and other sites. Adobe's latest version, 10.2.x or later, is only for Intel Macs. Adobe will not provide a newer Flash version for PPC Macs.
The message requesting that you download Adobe Flash Player takes you to Flash Player requiring an Intel processor. Doesn't work on a PowerPC processor. I found a hack, installed it & it works with Firefox, TenFourFox & Safari.
Download this http://www.steelbin.com/FPforFBPPC.zip to your desktop, unzip it, and replace the current Flash Player plug-in which is in your main/Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder, (not the user Library). Save the old one just in case this one doesn't work.

    What does the Adobe test page say?
    http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the ''Safe mode'' start window.
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (on Mac: "Firefox > Quit")

  • After update flash player doesn't work most of the time

    Hi Folks!
    Windows XP
    IE 6
    About 2 weeks ago I installed a flash player security update and ever since then flash player doesn't work most of the time. On most websites with embeded video all I see is an empty placeholder where the video is supposed to be.
    If I go to a site like Youtube all is fine. However, if I go to a site that has embeded a Youtube video all I see is the empty placeholder where the video is supposed to be.
    Some folks have recommended I uninstall and download and reinstall. The problem with this is that there isn't *anything* related to Abobe flash player in Add/Remove programs.
    Not sure what to do about this (read: I'm totally lost!).
    Here's a screencap of the empty placeholder:
    http://i27.tinypic.com/2wrdttf.jpg

    The standard warranty is for 12 months from the date of purchase, unless you bough AppleCare which would have extended it to 2 years.
    If it's out of warranty, then you pay for repairs, and it's expensive. There are 3rd party repairers who are cheaper.
    Did you try these?
    The Five Rs.
    As the previous poster said, it's more than likely a hardware issue, but there's no harm in trying the software fixes before you decide it needs repair.

  • Flash Player doesn't work after update

    I'm using windows 7 with Firefox browser. I installed an update and now Flash Player doesn't work.
    I've tried re-installing but it still doesn't work.
    Can you help please.

    Please ask your question on a forum for the Flash Player

  • Flash Player doesn't work, either IE or Firefox.

    Flash Player doesn't work, on either IE or Firefox.  Vista 32 bit, Firefox 10.0.2, Shockwave Flash 11.1.102.62.  Reloaded Firefox and Flash.  I get the spinning circle, but video never starts on IE or FF. Settings manager works.  I'm at a loss.  Update - actually it works on most video now, except Fox Sports or ESPN, either IE of FF.

    After browsing the forums a bit, it would appear that this has been an ongoing problem for more than a month and the only 'inquiry' on the part of Adobe that I can find is one gentleman consistently asking people to report through the adobe bug/crash report process
    http://forums.adobe.com/thread/953796
    While I'm certain there have been many, many reports offered up, we have yet to see any solutions from the company, and admissions that there are issues with this product, or any ETA on expecting a reliable, stable version of Flash. 
    It would be very nice to have some feedback formally from the company.  Many users (including myself) are experiencing frequent BSOD, having to spend hours uninstalling, reinstalling and aimlessly troubleshooting our computers all because of this add-in. 
    I recently updated every single hardware driver from my manufacturer, flashed my BIOS, troubleshot memory through self-diagnostics for days, and i still have issues related to Flash.   I've tried the quick fixes suggested by (not sure if he's an Adobe official voice) user 'Chris' to no avail.
    Certainly I could offer my dump file, by what good will that do me?  Adobe, you certainly have enough crash reports to make SOME progress, please offer us up something, even if it's just to update us on any progress or research?  All we know is you want information from us, while we still have nothing from you

  • Macbook air adoble flash player doesn't work after installation

    macbook air adobe flash player doesn't work after installation

    If you're sure you've installed the latest version of Flash, take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test. For a "missing plug-in" error, start with Step 7. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Step 1
    You might have to log out or reboot before a Flash update takes effect.
    Step 2
    In the Safari preference window, select
    Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data
    Close the window. Then select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.
    Step 3
    If you're only having trouble with YouTube videos, log in to YouTube and load this page. You may see a link with the text "Leave the HTML5 Trial." If so, click that link.
    Step 4
    If you get a warning of a "blocked" or "outdated" plug-in, then from the menu bar select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Check Now. Quit and relaunch the browser.
    If the warning persists, triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
    Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open. Inside it, there should be a file named "XProtect.meta.plist". If that file is missing and you know why it's missing, restore it from a backup or copy it from another Mac running the same version of OS X. Otherwise, reinstall OS X.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
    Step 5
    Open this folder as in Step 4:
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Delete the following item, or anything with a similar name, if present:
    Flash Player (failing).plugin  
    You may be prompted for your login password.
    Step 6
    Re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from the domain "get.adobe.com". Don't click a link from any other website, including this one, because you can't trust links. They may be an attempt to trick you into installing malware masquerading as Flash. Type the address into the browser window. Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    Step 7
    If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked
    Allow (or Enable) plug-ins
    Then click the button marked
    Manage Website Settings...
    if present and make sure that the website is not blocked for Flash.
    Step 8
    Select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.

  • The flash player doesn't work on my IE9

    I have a windows 7 - 64 bit operating system. The flash player doesn’t work on my IE9 and it does work on Google Chrome. I have tried uninstalling the flash player and re installing the player. The download file doesn’t download when I try downloading through IE9and the file fails to initialize when I download the flash player for IE9 through google chrome. My antivirus software McAfee is not working because of the flash player and other softwares like yahoo messenger . Please help.

    Assuming you've checked to make sure that Shockwave Flash is enabled in IE's addons manager and you do not have ActiveX filtering enabled, Could you check to see if you have the following Windows update installed?
    KB2670838 – Platform Update for Windows 7 x64
    If so, please uninstall it and try Flash Player out again.
    Thanks,

  • Adobe 10.2 flash player doesn't work on some site with diff browsers

    WTF! I've been through every forum about new adobe flash player it doesnt work on some site i.e facebook, ustream, fox news, dailymotion and cartoon network...Nobody, not even adobe has a real solution to this problem! Some site stream good other don't at all. All I get is a blue box in the display sometimes it loads, but doesn't play the video or games. Updated Java and SWF and by the way this a brand new computer fresh out the box WIN7 64 worked before why not now! I've reinstall and uninstall, checked active X java scripting, and global settings and so on, but nothing seems to work. WHY? Global settings doesn't work for some unknown reason can't enable some of the settings. Everything work fine on my PC before the update, so go figure adobe. No! browser works with the new flash player properly. Fire, IE, Safari, and Opera none of these browser work with the flash player like it should! HELP!!! "I see why apple doesnt wont to have anything to do with adobe flash."

    I don't understand - in your post you mention "new Flash Player" several times, but in the subject you mention 10.2...?
    What is the exact FP version you have?
    For your blue box problem, have you tried to disable Hardware Acceleration?

  • Flash player doesn't work on some websites

    Hi,
    For some reason, video stays black on some websites, some other websites like youtube work. I applied the permissions fix that I found which worked at first but now the problem is back and this fix doesn't work anymore.
    I tried everything from fresh install to using older version, nothing works.
    I don't know what else to do.
    Thanks

  • Latest version of Flash Player doesn't work in Imac and Macbook Air 10.6.8

    Flash Player is not working in my Imac nor in MBA, after installing and reinstalling latest version of FP many, TOO MANY times for the past week.
    I haven't found any answer in the forums for Mac users.
    I'm using Safari 5.1.9 and my OS is 10.6.8. Javascript is allowed under security tab.
    The error I get in Youtube says that I need to install the latest FP version to play videos, then gives me the link to download FP. I also get error in other websites like Google maps, when I try to do a "street view" for example, and TV on demand.
    Please Help! Should I revert to installing an older version? I wasn't having this problem until I updated to FP 11.8...
    Thanks

    Download the offline installer here: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac /install_flash_player_11_osx.dmg
    Mount the DMG and run the installer
    If it won't run, go to: Mac HD/Library/Internet Plugins
    Trash the Flash Player.plugin file from there
    Go to: Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe
    Trash the Flash Player folder (the whole folder)
    Empty the trash
    Reboot
    Mount the DMG and run the installer again.

    Hello, Since you have uninstalled and reinstalled, the first thing I would do is go to www.adobe.com/software/flash/about. Adobe will tell you if F.P. is installed and what version you have. The next thing, is if it is indeed installed, is go to Tools>manange add ons, find Shockwave Flash Object, hi light it, and on the bottom right  you should see "Update Active X". Click on that and when the update is completed, Reboot. Then see if that solves your problem.

  • Flash Player doesn't work on Window 7 mobile phone

    The Adobe Flash Player does not work on the Windows 7 mobile phone when you are randomly surfing the Internet. Pandora Internet Radio does not work at all, or any Internet Radio site.  This is really a shame, that Microsoft and Adobe would allow a product to be released without all the functions and applications to meet the customers's needs. It appears that I will be returning my Windows 7 mobile phone. Very Unsatisfied.

    Hi, I have the following info that may be helpful. If it isn't then I certainly would call Microsoft or visit Microsoft.com and look for the Win 7 mobile phone info and or forum.
    You can also call your carrier, which should have info on whether Flash Player is available for it.
