This is making me crazy!

My G5 "died" so I dug out my old mac mini (which was barely used). Been going around-and-around trying to find the right version to install and NOTHING works!

Can't even watch a Youtube or anything!

Does anybody here know what to do????

Thank you!!!!!

Joanne

Is your Mini a PPC or Intel Mini?

You could also join the YT HTML5 beta - that will let you watch YT videos without needing Flash (for most videos).

If I'm correct about this, Adobe dropped support for PowerPC Macs with 10.2 so you'll need to go with 10.1. You can get it here.

O.K., this is where I cannot figure this out!

I can download it but don't see anything about intalling.

Download this. Extract it and open fp_10.1.102.64_and_9.0.289.0_archive > Flash Player 10.1.102.64 > 10_1r102_64 > flashplayer10_1r102_64_ub_mac.dmg. The installer is in there.

Thank you SO much for guiding me through this "treasure hunt" to find this but...

INSTALLATION FAILED

Same thing happened when I was trying to install the other versions.

Sigh... now what?

If you followed vansmith's instructions and got Installation failed, then there is something unrelated that is wrong with your OS X.

Are you sure you mounted and installed from flashplayer10_1r102_64_ub_mac.dmg
(and ONLY that one?)?
