yes, i tried using that software but it doesnt seem to reconize by the Macbook.
I had a copy of this software working on my iMac Intel but not on MacBook.
this software was last updated on 2006-5-12, before the Macbook was released.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

i used the migration assistant software to transfer all the plugins and my home folder from my Intel iMac to my MacBook. It worked on the iMac but not on Macbook.
How can I locate the flash player software from the MacBook cd?MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
Interesting question… I have no idea given it's part of the standrd installation I would have thought. So what exactly happens when you go to the Adobe page?Mac mini Core Duo 1.66GHz 2GB/80GB/SD ; PowerBook G4 1.25GHz 1GB/80GB/SD, Mac OS X (10.4.6), Dell 2405FPW ; Maxtor OneTouch 250GB ; Pioneer DVR-109BK ; iSight ; iPod 4G 40GB
Currently Being ModeratedMay 24, 2006 2:42 PM (in response to infinite vortex)here are some interesting points:
1. i reinstalled mac osx and flash player seemed to be working now
2. i did software update and updated i. quicktime 7.1, J2SE 5R4 and Security update 2006-003
3. i restart the computer....and guess what...flash player doesnt work now!MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
Now isn't that rather screwed up. Guessing, I think it's the Security Update 2006-003. There have been a load issue with this update on the Intel Macs. Apart from doing your clean install a gain you might want to download and reinstall the 10.4.6 combo update. This should over-write the security update.
By the way, be sure to repair your disk permissions in Disk Utility.
at last....i found what the problem is!!!!!!!!!!!!!
when i updated quicktime to 7.1, it actually changed the MIME settings (to use quicktime to display flash files i.e. .SWF, which doesn't work in quicktime.
uncheck the tickbox and the problem is fixed...anyway, thankx all for the help. cheers!MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
I had that problem with a not working Flash player installation as well. I installed the beta software and still nothing worked.
Then I checked for all plug-ins on my HD and I found a local installation in ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins, too. As I migrated from a 15" PB G4 that was an PPC-only plug-in that was strictly loaded before the global plug-in that is universal.
Maybe you should check for an old plug-in in your home directory?MB (2 GHz), Mac Mini (1.66 GHz Core Duo), Mac OS X (10.4.6), iPod color 60 GB, iPod nano 4 GB, iPod shuffle 1 GB
Currently Being ModeratedAug 15, 2006 8:51 PM (in response to ng_sir)I have been viewing flash no probem since I bought my macbook, after an series of download updates I can no longer view even basic embeded flash files.
I can't find any problems with my quicktime MIME settings or any other system files. Also have read through this posting - any more help from anyone?
Help appreciated, feel a bit dumb
