How Can I get it to work on my new MBP?
Have you downloaded and installed it?
Is it installed?
I'm pretty sure it is installed. I downloaded it and selected to install. On some pages I go to, like macrumors.com, where videos are posted, it says "plug-in missing"
After you download and install flash from the Adobe site ...
You may also want to get control of it with "ClickToFlash":
Go here to check your currently-installed version of Flash Player:
Find Flash Player version
You may also need the "Flip4Mac" plug-in for some video file formats which are designed for Windows media viewer.
Where can I get said plug-ins? Sorry, just made the switch to Mac Saturday. But other than a few things like this, all has Bren very amazing. Though I am wondering if I shoulda got the 15" MBP instead of the 13". I will have to be ire in 14 days!!! The apple store dude said I could exchange without a restocking fee luckily though!
Did you follow the link I posted? You can check your version and find and install the latest version from that link.
I'm having the same issue. Even when I install adobe flash player, a message keeps popping up saying that I'm missing plug-ins. When I try to install plug ins manually, it takes me back to the adobe flash player page and the whole process repeats itself. I suspect my kids downloaded some player for their video games but I don't know how to go about fixing this problem.
Hook'Em2006 and geno59, is Flash Player listed when you go to Safari > Help >> Installed Plug-ins?
This very issue happened to me when i brought my imac just a few weeks ago. A simple shut down, and then re start of the imac solved the problem. No idea why, as it never asks you to restart your imac, but it's what fixed mine .
Any reason apple macs aren't just shipped with flash player installed? Or is that a stupid question :/
There are 2 reasons that I have heard:
1) Steve Jobs doesn't like Flash, preferring HTML5, hence no flash on iPad.
2) Flash has so many exploits, that requiring a fresh download insures that you have the latest version right from the start.
No, but it does show I have the following:
Adobe Acrobat and Reader Plug-in
DivX Web Player
Flip4Mac Windows Media Plugin 2.3.6
Java Plug-In 2 for NPAPI Browsers
Quartz Composer Plug-In
QuickTime Plug-In 7.6.9
Switchable Java Plug-in for WebKit
Verified Download Plugin
Do I need all this stuff and if not, where can I remove it? Thanks for all your help!
