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_cThe link to download with read me – http://www.steelbin.com/FPforFBPPC.zipWith 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…
