Adobe Flash 11.5 for PowerPC

I found this on Mac OS X Tiger PPC’s Facebook’s page and it seems to be working very well, at least the comments are very positive… It’s basically Adobe Flash 11.5 for PowerPC! I know this steps away from our norm, but the policy of Mac PowerPC is to share all options for PowerPC, with a focus on the free and readily available!

* Adobe Flash 11.5 -  Download Here

P.S.: This is infact a hacked plugin! We decided to share it with you because the idea of Mac PowerPC is to share all the information/apps/news about Mac OS X PowerPC. This is not 100% secure, if you do try it – do so at your own risk.

  1. I’ve done without flash on powerpc for some time now. I prefer watching youtube videos with the quicktime enabler plugin that you can download from tenfourfox’s site. But out of curiosity I wonder if this 11.5 hack is any less or more stable, since versions after 11.01 tended to become a bit less buggy.

    • It isn’t any more or less buggy. It is the same plugin, but it tells websites it is newer. This allows PowerPC computers to trick websites into thinking that you are using the most up-to-date plugin, and that their flash sites will work with your computer. Usually, things work fine once you trick the website.

  2. Let’s be honest here though…it’s just the old Flash 10.1 with the version bump. It still works on a lot of sites, but Flash is flash.

    There is no additional risk involved by using this plugin versus the last compatible PowerPC version, as it is the same. The only difference is the version it identifies itself as to websites. No additional security risk.

  4. Popularity of iPad, mobile browsers and such forced web developers to phase out flash in favor of HTML5. That’s pretty nice tendency for all of us, PowerPC users. My Alu G4 PowerBook came a long way, from being “obsolete” to current label of being “able to get the job done”. Now I can watch YouTube content with standalone apps, tinker with online jukebox (html5 version of Grooveshark), use flash-free rendition of StreetView (QS view) or even use modern sites like Airbnb that used to rely heavily on flash back in the day. I don’t even have an excuse to buy MacBook anymore. Still running OSX Tiger ;)

  5. I am running Lubuntu (linux) on my PowerBook G4 which has a PowerPC processor. Would I be able to run this version of Flash? And how would I do it?
