I wanted to play an episode of a TV show over the internet on my Mac Mini through Safari but once it got to the page to play it wouldn't work. Yet when I tried the same thing on my Macbook pro it would work.

Any ideas as to why it'll play on one Mac but not another?

Mac mini

    Is the Mini a G4 or Intel processor? Doing "About this Mac" from your Apple menu will show the processor type. I'm finding many sites that do not properly support G4 processors. As Apple abandoned that technology about 7 years ago, web developers seem to have no problem ignoring the G4


    If you Mini has an Intel processor, please post the version of the Mac OS you sre running on it (it is also in the "About this Mac" window) and we can go from there.

    Hi Allan,

    Thanks for the response. Here is the info you were after.


    2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo

    Mac OS X Version 10.6.8


    Not sure if it matters at all but I'm using my flat screen TV as the monitor and it's connected via the amp with HDMI cables.


    Thanks again
