    youtube video's with PPC
    hi folks; I'm sure this is an old question but what are my options for getting video onto the web , say to forum. I have about a seven or eight yr old mac mini , PPC, using OS 10.4.11.
    I think that i'm not supported in youtube and facebook. Are there work arounds or is there another way to make short video's and put them on the web.

    Welcome to Mac-Forums..

    Most sites that deal with Flash video require newer versions of Flash which require newer versions of OS X which require newer versions of Mac..

    Snow Leopard (10.6) is the oldest Mac that would work in most cases, but your PPC based Mac can't run Snow Leopard..

    Since your current setup is built around the Mac Mini, you could consider just replacing the PPC Mac MIni with the new one..The 2.5 Ghz i5 Mac Mini goes for $599 and is so much more powerful than your PPC Mac Mini..
    Mac-Forums is shutting down in the near future. Read this thread to learn more.

    If your problem is because you can't install the latest version of Flash, this will enable you to fool the system. It worked with my PPC Mini.

    As far as I know, Flash 10.1 (The last version available for PPC) is still compatible with youtube. To increase your chances of being able to play videos, try the Camino web browser. Works great for older Macs, and with it I can still watch youtube on my old G3's and G4's.

    Speaking of Camino however, as of May 30th, 2013, Camino is no longer being supported. It's still useable, of course, but yet another blow to the older Macs. Pretty sad.
