I have modded this plugin by 1fatbastard @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCrAKhv3R_c to do the same exact things, but run a lot faster and smoother when playing online Facebook, Kongregate etc... games. Its compatible with all available web browsers for Mac OSX Tiger PPC Machines. I have been using it awhile in TenFourFox web browser since version 6, and since it does so well I figured I'll share it with a mac community. Try, Test and Enjoy!

To learn how to activate Flash in TenFourFox 6+ visit this thread:

Just curious…

I have the Flash plugin mentioned in the youtube video. Get Info says it's version 11.1 r102, which I know is trickery (it's really version 10) but designed to fool websites requiring Flash 11 to work.

Your plugin reports 10.2 r153 using Get Info.

So, my question is, is your plugin going to work with sites that require Flash 11?

This thread is starting to hurt my head.

I have no problem using flash, and it shows up s 10.1 r102. Do you (or anyone know what I can do to upgrade this?

Thanks.

The last version of Flash compatible with PowerPC Mac is 10.1 something. But there are some websites out there that require Flash 11 to display Flash video.

A while back someone "hacked" the 10.1 version so that it showed that it was Flash 11. It's the same plugin, the version is still 10.1, but it reports itself as 11 and websites that require Flash 11 to work are fooled.

The OP of this thread is providing a Flash plugin that shows the true version number or at least a version number that is not version 11. So my question is if websites requiring Flash 11 will still be fooled.

Yeah, I got the gist of your post. Your response also reminded me that I did the "trick fix" with Flash that fools Web sites to treat it as though it's Flash 11, though I don't believe there's any effective way of knowing this.

If you want to check, try this link (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html)

When I check that link it reports the version on my G5 quad as such...

I installed it (replaced mine on /library/internet plugins ) on 10.5.8, and it reports: 10.0.22.87

It is supposed to be tiger only?

Same here, I did the test and got 10.0.22.87

Although, I can play videos on Facebook now. Any ideas?

The current version of Adobe Flash is 11.4. The last version with PowerPC support was 10.1. Having the 10.1 one report as 11.1 allows it to display videos and media from sites that check for an 11.x installation.

Sorry I meant for Leopard/Tiger Powerpc

I ran the test and there's a chart below the version number, and it states that the last version for our architecture is 10.3

The chart is incorrect. Adobe lists 10.1 as the last PowerPC version: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html

I do not understand whether the OPs flash version now makes a difference to installing flash10 and making the websites think it is 11 (like here http://lowendmac.com/ed/royal/12sr/flash-11-and-powerpc.html), but I was told there is a real flash11 conversion for PPC here http://jesimpki.hubpages.com/hub/Installing-Flash-11-On-Power-PC-PPC-Macs

(didn't test it myself, though).

That's still Flash 10.1. Only Adobe can update/port 10.2+ to PowerPC Macs.

Yep, that's my work - I posted it on here a couple of months ago. The general consensus is that most sites load fine - but there will be the odd one which refuses to work because of a genuine requirement for 11.5 functionality which we don't have.
