    hi guys. I would like to watch the formula 1 qualifying on my mac. Its on BBC web site. I get a dialogue saying that I have not got the CORRECT version of flash player, with a box to download now. I have downloaded it & installed it. It ended with "installation successful"

    I shut down/restarted, but when going back to BBC site, its the same.

    I assume I DO have the latest version!

    It used to work!

    Tried Firefox/Opera/Chrome instead of Safari yet?

    no I haven't. I assumed the safari was the best, as its installed on the mac by default!

    Try Chrome as it has it's own version of flash built in. It's installed default on Mac's because it's made by the same people (Apple).

    I managed to figure it out. It was in preferences (enable plugins) (was unticked) Thanks.

    Well... Had a bloody customer arrive, while it was on and missed the best bit! Watched at home later, but fell asleep!
