In a past post I listed VLC with a bunch of other audio players but I mentioned that it was a great movie player as well. At that time I was using VLC as a good resource for my music media. Recently I noticed that it got an update and this post here is to make sure that you will update this very PowerPC friendly application. Can you believe that they’re still looking out for us after all these years? This is Awesome so let’s show some PowerPC love to VLC when you play your music or videos.
A while ago we mentioned Browsers for PowerPC in few of our posts. We also mentioned a few updates from those Browsers, because we believe it is important to have applications updated as much as possible. Here is our list of recently updated Browsers, which are probably the Big Four for PowerPC, these days.
Apple Update for Mac PowerPC (iTunes/AirPort Utility)
Picture it: The Orchard, 2012…what’s going on here? I know with Sophia Petrillo it sounds more funny, but you can not blame me for trying! Anyways, I’m just posting here to make sure all the Leopard users get the 2 updates that Apple just released. The first one is for AirPort Utility 5.6.1, which allows us to configure and mange the new Airport Express with simultaneous dual band 802.11n. For iTunes 🙂 10.6.3: You can check more details here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1426?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US It seems this update brings compatibility with the new iOS6 and also it’s available for Leopard G4/G5.
I can not believe after all the years they finally released an update for Leopard (Intel only) a few weeks ago and now 2 updates for PowerPC! This is a victory, don’t waste your time, go to > Software Update and have some fun!
This afternoon when I was researching PowerPC compatible apps, I read a post about an update to Leopard on the site 9To5Mac that includes a flashback removal tool that Apple just released. I honestly thought that by using my PowerPC, I would be safe from viruses and trojans that surround the internet world. Maybe we Mac users are not 100% safe, but I still don’t think we are the main focus of people trying to attack our computers. Anyways, I digress: download this update from the attached link: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42931/leopard-security-update-2012-003I was checking the comments and it seems that the PPC users are having some problems installing it. Feedback is that it could be a mistake and the update may be for Intel only. Anyways it’s worth a look…
