Flash player won't work or download. It says it no longer supports power pcs. I am running 10.5.8 on my ibook G4. Seem to have tried everything. i.e. chrome, firebird, archived flash players, etc. All not supported. Any insight??? It started when I tried to upgrade current flash player and it said I needed to uninstall current version, which I did, and then it wouldn't download the current one giving me the not supported story! Please help!!!!!!

Hi Andy, that is correct, they don't support PPC Macs anymore.
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
Download this if you haven't...
http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp10.1.102.6 4_and_9.0.289.0archive.zip
Once downloaded if it doesn't unzip automatically the double click on that file.
Look for the fp10.1.102.64_and_9.0.289.0archive folder, open it, look for the Flash Player folder & open and look for 101r10264 folder & open it, double click on the flashplayer101r102_64_ubmac.dmg file, choose the Install Adobe Flash Player file to install... they don't make it easy!
Or smaller here...
Stand alone player...
Or free 3rd party...

    I have installed and unistalled flash player several times, and even restarted my computer. I followed all the steps to do so correctly, but the Flash Player won't work at all. Youtube and other websites give me error messages when I try to watch a video. They say "missing plug-in".

  • IE 11--Flash Player won't work

    I have just installed Internet explorer 11, and my flash player won't work.  I have uninstalled and re-installed it,  and unchecked Active-X, and enabled shockwave.   Any suggestions please?????

    I could not get this problem solved.  Uninstalled IE 11, and reinstalled IE9, and things are working fine.

  • Flash Player won't work. Tried everything I can think of.

    Right, excuse the babbling but I want to make sure I have all
    the details down here. I also don't know that much about computers,
    but I shall try.
    I am currently running XP on an Advent laptop which, for some
    reason or other, has decided that it doesn't want to run flash
    (Java etc is also a problem). I have tried the Internet Options
    settings (ie putting Java and Active X on enable or prompt etc) and
    all that seemed to do was every time I go onto YouTube type
    websites, it would download various things OVER and OVER again. I
    also can't see any flash on things like MSN or other junk that
    teenagers tend to download (Zwinkies or cursor sites etc) I managed
    to get over this by downloading Firefox, which has sorted my
    website problem, but I am now in a predicament. I STILL can't see
    and winks and stuff on MSN and I have just had some .SWF files sent
    me to check but, as they aren't on the internet, I cannot use
    Firefox to see them. I would also like to view them when I am on
    the move, with NO internet connection.
    I have tried downloading various stand-alone Flash players
    but the same problem still occurs.
    This program requires Macromedia Flash Player Plugin, which
    is not found at this system. Go to the Macromedia site to download
    and install plugin?
    I have tried everything I can think of, even
    completely uninstalling it as per instructions on this site, and
    reinstalling, but nothing seems to work. Is there a setting I need
    to switch on or is it just my computer that doesn't like Flash?
    Please help as I am at my wits end.
    Thank you.

    As usual,from this ioutfit,total silence.

  • Flash Player won't work on any browser! Help!

    I can't get any videos to play in any browser (Internet explorer, Chrome or Firefox). I can only play videos from Youtube and Netflix but no other videos or rich media content works.
    I have literally tried everything that is recommended on the Flash Player Help page.
    I've updated and re-installed Flash Player a million times.
    I've updated and re-installed all my web browsers.
    I enabled and disabled Active-X.
    I enabled Flash Player on Chrome through chrome://plugins
    I disabled background apps.
    I turned off my firewall.
    I checked for viruses.
    And I googled the problem on a ton of other sites, followed other users' instructions to fix the issue, and still no luck.
    This is my system:
    Windows 8
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.7GHz 1.70GHz
    64-bit Operating System x64 based processor.
    I need Flash Player to do assignments online and I haven't been able to do them all week. Please help ASAP!
    Thank you!

    As above, have gone through a number of browsers and tried all of the fixes listed on any webpage I can find. Always the same outcome, video plays for a few minutes (occasionally seconds) and then green screen/jumbled audio
    Have tried Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera, all with the same results.
    Laptop is brand spanking new, out of the box less than two days, so far I've only installed the latest Nvidia drivers 347.09 and Avast.
    System is:
    Asus ROG G751JT
    Windows 8.1 (fully updated)
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710HQ CPU @ 2.5GHz 2.49GHz

  • Flash Player won't work following malware removal - help!

    I removed some malware using malwarebytes, which I thought was the end of my problem, but in fact it has opened up a bigger one, in that Flash Player has stopped working.  I've tried uninstalling and re-installing - now have version - but no success.  Kids didn't mind when they couldn't access their online homework; not so happy now they can't play their games either.  I've looked at other discussions for a solution, but nothing quite fits this problem.  Any help gratefully accepted.
    I can follow instructions but I'm not techie, so any replies need to be idiot-friendly, thanks.

    Have just spotted your post about the "kill-bit" http://forums.adobe.com/message/3432049#3432049 - sounds remakably like my problem so will check it out when I get home this evening.  Just one question though - is there any point in first trying to do a system restore to a point prior to the malware removal, or would I be wasting my time?

  • Now that I have installed OSX Lion, my flash player won't work.

    After I installed OSX Lion a few days ago my flash player suddenly stopped working. It won't let me update (it says I have the newest version) and when say, I try to watch a YouTube video a little box comes up over the player with settings and the "allow" button but no matter if I use the trackpad or the keyboard I can't select anything.
    It's getting really annoying because I can't play games, watch videos or video share online anymore and I have no idea how to fix it.
    Is it just something that will be stuck until Adobe releases a version that isn't beta for OSX 10.7?

    This allows me to watch videos which is great but still when I try to play any flash games or enable a webcam on something other than iChat, Skype or Photobooth the dialog box comes up and even using tab and space bar like Adobe suggests doesn't seem to work. :-/
    Glad to be able to watch videos again though

  • Flash player won't work on any browsers

    For some reason, flash won't work on any browsers. I've tried Chrome, Safari and Firefox. I have always had to click on any flash element to load it however now, it just says I have to install flash. I have tried re-installing flash, uninstalling flash (checked it wasn't still in macHD/library etc)
    I've searched around for any ideas that might work but can't find anything that's working. Does anyone have any suggestions!?

    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:
    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, 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
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.

  • Upgraded to firefox 6 and flash player won't work

    I've finally upgraded to Firefox 6, after much much hesitation, and now certain sites built in Flash won't work. They work just great in Safari. The upgrade to the latest Flash player worked for Safari, but not Firefox. I've updated the Shockwave player.
    No matter how many times I download and install the newest player and restart my browser, it still tells me I have to download and install the newest flash player and restart my browser.
    Even Firefox 5 doesn't want to work with Flash...
