Problems Playing Flash Videos on PowerBook G4
A friend of mine is having trouble playing flash videos on his 1.33 GHz PowerBook G4 (256MB of RAM). He has version 7 of flash player and is unable to upgrade to a newer version.
For financial reasons, he'd like to hold onto this unit for a little while longer if possible. Are there any recommendations to help improve the situation or is it simply time to throw in the towel and buy a new Macbook?

Flash is horrible on a Mac, I've had trouble playing flash videos on a G5 iMac. Pretty sure you can't really do anything about it.
13in MBP, 2.26GHz, 8GB RAM, 500GB WD Scorpio Blue HDD

It depends on whether the bottleneck is the CPU or RAM. Have him use Activity Monitor to see if the CPU load is at max when attempting to play or not. At 256MB for RAM, there has to be a lot of disk swapping taking place and that slows things significantly.
