4. Mactubes ran great right of the "box", so I think you must use at least Tiger to get it runing fine.
2. When I try to use quicktime it says something is missing and just the audio plays.
3. Thanks I will try that
4. Hmm I think I may be forced to upgrade.
5. I will give it a try
Thanks for your help

Why not Leopard Webkit- identical interface, optimized, better HTML5 support. On the surface it is the same as Safari, but under the hood it's much better.

I was just a little too optimistic when I said that I tried every single browser for PPC Leopard...

3: What is the best browser (Safari works OK, I would like to be able to use facebook though.)
4: How do I get mactubes to work?

Thanks in advance.
I don't know what the problem is exactly with MacTubes. To me it's very intuitive. You can either watch videos within the application (selecting QuickTime as the player is recommended) or download them by right clicking on the video, and then watch them with either VLC or MPlayer Extended for OS X.

Try Camino and SeaMonkey, and you'll learn how much of a drag Safari is.

Install Leopard. Some (many?) PowerPC apps are either incompatible with Tiger or are maximized for Leopard. Having used both, I can tell you that Leopard is smoother and snappier than Tiger.

Holy shoot!!

I didn't know that the fbi has a special unit to catch people who install leopard on an old piece of junk


I wouldn't worry to much about the law catching up to you even if its illegal.
