Question Actually using a substitute Flash Player plugin

I set tenfourfox.plugins.enabled to true, and downloaded "Low Quality Flash", for our PPC G5 mac with OSX 10.5, and have TenFourFox 8.

But I am still asked to download the latest Adobe Flash Player, when I try to
run a Youtube video.

I assume there is something else I have to do,
What is it?

Thanks for any help.

Question Using MacTubes for Youtube??

I've set tenfourfox.plugins.enabled to true as described by RMT25, downloaded MacTubes. Still cannot play youtube videos.
What else do I need to do to see youtube videos?

Set the player type to Quicktime in the MacTubes preferences. I prefer not to involve the web at all and just use MacTubes. Once I got used to this different method/interface I actually prefer it. The worst thing about YT is all the stupid ignorant comments people make and using MT frees you from having to ever even look at it.

The key to finding a good solution to anything is looking at alternative methods rather than just making the mainstream one work "better".

Installing Flash on your Mac

I'm quite happy with Safari. In fact I don't even know what the impetus was to use Firefox or TenFourFox in the first place. No support from those folks. Though I backed up all my TFF files, I cannot figure how to import the bookmarks. Nobody is home at TenFourFox.

But hey, it was free so there is no justification for complaining.
This is one way of installing Flash. I used another method, but I can't find the clip.

Does Flash still run in TFF 14? For now I stick with TFF 7 because I need Flash.

According to this from a TenFourFox support page just...

That's a good question.

I don't know the answer, but I'm betting that AuroraFox runs faster. Just a hunch, based on the the speed decrement to which you refer.

I might put it to the test when I have the time.

Your input on this forum is much appreciated.

I have a quad and I sure that Aurora runs better on it than TFF..

The question is more directed the G3-G4 guys..

-Thanks to "MAC MAN JW" at the TenFourFox blog for this easy to understand guide.

http://tenfourfox.blogspot.com/
Thanks for posting this. I first used this tutorial to get Flash 11.1.102.55 into Safari using 10.4.11 on iMac G5 2.1 (isight)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCrAKhv3R_c

I then downloaded TenFourFox 17.0.5
Then I used the tip described in your post.
Then downloaded Flash 10.1.102.64 using TFF browser. When I went to install it, Adobe gave me the message I already had a newer version.

So I went here to check:

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/...sh-player.html

All is well, Thanks again. BTW I registered because of your post. Awesome.
