    new mac user needs software
    ok, so i just picked up a powerbook g3 yesterday. the specs are
    233mhz, 96mb ram, 4mb vid, with a 2gb hdd

    i have a version of winamp that works on here for playing mp3's, but i need something to play avi files and what not. i got a trip coming up this weekend, and i wanna bring it along with me so i can play my burned video discs.
    it has quicktime, but its an older version, and i couldnt find a newer version on the apple website, how ironic.

    can anybody help me out?

    That's a pretty old machine, I'm not sure that newer versions of Quicktime will work on it. I take it you're running OS 9?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Wow.... ur machine is pretty old.

    Well.. you could try doing a google for software on the web

    When I bought my first mac a year ago it had OS 9 and I was struggling to find software for it
    Found a site that had everything I wanted

    you might wanna try...

    http://www.versiontracker.com/macos/

    or better yet...

    If these don't work out let me know
