Which version for Mac OS X 10.4.11 (PowerPC) on an iBook G4?

Feb 16, 2011 6:08 AM

I can't find/figure out which version to download of Flash Player.  I'm using an iBook G4, OS X 10.4.11, Power PC (not Intel).  I can't figure out what I should download, I can't find anything listing these specifications.  We just reinstalled the OS, and they sent us 10.4.11, but we were asking for 10.3.4, which previously worked just fine, so perhaps a Flash for 10.3.4 would work better?   Obviously, I tried the newest version and it didn't work.


Thanks for any help.

    Hi, I'm not sure if that edition is still supported, check here:



    Following is the Archived Versions:




    If you find a version that works, keep in mind you must Uninstall any version that is already Installed first.


    This is a Mac Troubleshooting Guide that may be helpful. I know it's for whatever current version of Flash Player is out, but I would think the basics may be the same. You probably can tell by looking it over.



    Hope that helps,

    I had your same problem today because of a piece of sheet music I was trying to print told me I needed to upgrade my Flash player.  I have the same exact operating system and computer.  I tried downloading every one until one worked.  The archived Flash 10.1 (not the debugger version) was the one that worked for me and for some reason I had to reinstall my Shockwave Player  Now, all my plug-ins are working fine and I was able to download and print that sheet music!!! Hope this helps.  Good luck!

    Yeah, this does suck! I get things I want to play but who knew somebody would think that leaving G5 consumers with power PC's out on a limb would be accrptable. I been a Mac consumer since the beginning. (IIci)
