I moved this discussion from Acrobat discussion to Flash Player discussion on
Message was edited by: specificallyjocular After I posted, the following two topics showed in the sidebar under "More Like This"… "Re: Flash player not working in Firefox with YouTube" and "Re: Flash player for Mac PowerPC?" … and I think these may have the answers to my question.
Still, I'd appreciate comments on my post, or just a confirmation that my flash player problem is answered in one or both of those posts. Then I can follow the process outlined there to fix the problem. Thanks, Rafael
iBook g4 ppc, 1.5 MB Ram
Firefox 3.6.28 (default browser, but I also use Safari)
TenFourFox7450 A browser like Firefox for OS 10.4.11
QuickTimePlayer v 7.6.4 .jpg
My YouTube has been running fine both on Safari and on Firefox until a couple of days ago. (Around that time I did happen to download and work with a Firefox offshoot for Tiger called TenFourFox, but I don't know if that caused this problem. TenFourFox is at http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/. What little I’ve used TenFourFox, it’s a great browser, better than Firefox 3.6.28 for me which is the highest I can go with Firefox. I just noticed, though, that there’s a caveat in TenFourFox that says no plug-ins accepted. Then there are a lot of work-around pages which I haven’t gotten into yet. I’ll stick to firefox and safari for now until I get my YouTube back.)
What happens when I arrive at a YouTube or other video site is this. The video window is grayed out and there's a small message that says I need a plug-in. In sequence, as I click, I get the following messages:
I went to the archived Adobe plug-in page and got Flash Player 10.1.102.64, as specified for my OS 10.4.11 and ppc Ibook G4.
Now I've got these two in my application folder:
Flash Player Debugger.app
But the problem isn't solved. I've downloaded that plug-in, Flash Player 10.1.102.64, a number of times and still can't get YouTube to work.
Infrequently, a YouTube video will run, but it doesn't stream well. That's usually the case anyway because of low bandwidth. For that reason, when I can see the videos (I mean when YouTube's working as it should), I have to download them, then play them in Quicktime. They'll stream evenly, though even then I have to wait for the Quicktime video to buffer.
That's the problem. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the Flash forum? Folks here focus on Acrobat, not Flash.
