    Flash player 10.1
    I just got gifted the last version of the iBook G4, and got around to updating the OS to 10.5.8, and I'm under the impression that because it has the PowerPC processor, the newest Flash Player I can get is 10.1. But Adobe is making it horribly hard to find it on their website, if its still available. Is there some other place I can download Flash Player 10.1 so that videos stop being so glitchy?

    You're right - hard to find.
    This includes some non-usable files, but also the 10.1 r102:

    hmmm, what are the "non-usable files"? How will I find the Flash Player amongst all the other files? Thanks!

    As far as I can tell, one of the files is flashplayer10_1r102_64_ub_mac.dmg,
    which is a Mac disk image with installer.

    Seems like you could have downloaded it and figured it out...

    Just the one I pointed out. When you double-click on it it mounts on the desktop. Go into that and run the installer.
