Reggie Asworth’s Applications (AppDelete/VidConvert)

This post is supposed to be just about AppDelete, but when browsing the web, I noted that the developer also has another conversion app that works on the PowerPC so this became a double post!

AppDelete is shareware but it definitely does the job! If you are looking for a very easy to use “drag and drop” uninstaller that also allows you to browse your application, screensaver, widgets, as you uninstall, then I think this is a great option for you.  It properly uninstalls the applications without leaving any files behind. (Trial version will give you 5 uses)

AppDelete 3.2.8 ($7.99) PowerPC – 10.5 Leopard – http://www.reggieashworth.com/appdelete

AppDelete 2.2.4 ($5.00) PowerPC – 10.3/10.4 Panther/Tiger – http://www.reggieashworth.com/appdelete

VidConvert also follows the same layout, it’s very easy to use and the best feature is the “drag and drop”.  It will convert any type of video into one of the many popular formats of today. (Supported output – iPhone, iPad, iPod, Retina, Apple TV, QuickTime, .mp4, .avi, DivX, Xvid, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DVD (.vob), Windows Media, Flash, Matroska (.mkv), Theora (.ogg), .m4a, .mp3, .aiff, .wav, .wma, .ac3) (Trial version will convert only 3 minutes sample videos.

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!

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.

Video Plugin Flash Facebook PowerPC

A few weeks ago, I got a message that advised I wasn’t able to watch the a video on facebook, using a mac powerpc.  It looks like the flash/plugin it’s not compatible with Facebook!  The maximum flash update you can get is version 10.1 and to be able to watch Facebook’s videos, you need version 11.1.
Good news… Someone already looked out for us and created or modified the required plugin for mac powerpc users!
I did install this in my sister’s PowerBook running Leopard, and it worked very well!  Hopefully this will fix our problems in the future.
For more informations you can watch the youtube video here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCrAKhv3R_c
The link to download with read me - http://www.steelbin.com/FPforFBPPC.zip
With this plugin you will be able to watch Flash videos from Facebook on your Mac PowerPC, using Safari.  Hooray!  This plugin only works with Safari, but maybe soon we will be able to use with TenFourFox!
I really appreciate my PowerPC friend’s blog - http://ppcluddite.blogspot.com/  who posted this great news for all survivors of Mac PowerPC!  This just goes to prove that it’s not time to turn off our machines just yet…
