    No need to restart my Mac in my experience.


    However, there does seem to be a false positive: copying the file to the folder and going to Adobe's detection page in browser shows updated, however, you'll notice that right-clicking on Flash objects still shows "About Adobe Flash Player 10..." in the last menu option at the bottom. Nevertheless, Flash objects in Facebook are functioning which confirms this hack is legitimate. And not only for safari, I use Firefox regularly.

    Thanks for supplying the link. I followed the instructions that came with the download but had to make two additional actions. First, I had to move my flash blocker plug-in out of the library/internet plug-ins folder. Then, I had to shut down and power up my iBook G4 (restarting didn't work). Now, both Safari and Firefox play the Flash videos that I couldn't access before.


    Thanks again.

    @ Tom


    I noticed Adobe released Flash Player (update from late Wednesday night, February 15.


    Do you know how and/or is easy to edit the .plugin to report that latest version to websites? Does it require a hex editor, etc, of some sort?

    I substuted the Flash Plugin alternatiive above and whereas I no longer get a Flash request update from the website I want to view I still don't see the videos (ITV Player)  I am running a G4 with Leopard.,

    @BDAquaThe fine print says that TenFourFox does not work with Flash.  Thank you for the suggestion.  This looks like a good browser for my computer.  But I use Flash on Facebook so I chose not to download it.  Thank you!


    @Texas Mac Man


    I have been over the Adobe web site a zillion times.  I have tried everything.  My skills are intermediate but eventually I can usually figure things out and get what I need.  Not this time!

    Finally, after many aggravating hours I used your solution and it worked!!!

    Actually, you can enable Flash in TenFourFox...

    Thanks for this, Flash is now running on TenFourFox on my iBook 3G, however Moshi Monsters is painfully slow much to the disappointment of my kids who I've got the iBook out of the bottom of the cupboard for!

    Yeah, sorry, G3s, even most G4s, & some G5s can't cut today's bloated Internet!

    Same here. The file worked for me. For some reason it wasn't until I had cold started my G4 that I could get it to work. I did many restarts, fixed permissions, cleared caches, did what Adobe told me to do, uninstalled the supposedly correct version that they recommended. I had given up for that day but it worked the next day!


    CPU use used to be 100% beforehand, now it is manageable though everything is hard for this machine these days. (1.67 ghz, 15" Powerbook DL with 1.5 gb RAM, 10.6.11)


    Thanks for this thread!

    ok I'm on a power g5.... youttube embedded videos in facebook run for me but on the cnn site, I can get the advertisement but not the content...


    is this because I'm in Canada or is it this flash problem?


    is an embedded youtube video "flash"?


    is there another site I can test browser based videos from?


    also what is tenfour? is that another browser? or are you guys refering to a version of firefox or safari?


    ....oddly, I just tried this video from Anderson Cooper... this seems to be a CNN video (on the CNN site)... I can see this, but other cnn vids I was not successful.

  • Southfork Level 1 Level 1

    Tried this hack also and it works on some videos facebook etc, using OS 10.5.8 with Firefox.

    Would like to see missed TV channel 4 programmes, I have no luck with this hack on these!



    Well done to the one who put it together!!!!

  • rkmcal Level 1 Level 1

    Talk to Texas Mac Man about the source of the hack.

  • Southfork Level 1 Level 1

    Hi Texas Mac Man


    Tried this hack also and it works on some videos facebook etc, using OS 10.5.8 with Firefox.

    Would like to see missed TV channel 4 programmes, I have no luck with this hack on these!



    Could these videos be accessed by an old iMac running 10.5.8 with any other software hacks?

    Like David Bartosic says "I too think it is preposterous to try and put these excellent machines out to pasture before their time."


    Thank you very much for your hack!!!!

    Thank you. I can now see a couple of Flash-driven apps that wouldn't load - and that annoying message about plug-ins has vanished!
