    Adobe Flash Player
    What's the deal with Adobe Flash Player not being supported any longer on my OS X 10.5?
    Do I have to buy a new desk top?
    Thank you for any help/input!

    You can still install AFP on 10.5

    Goto here and download Flash Player for your OS and install.

    Who said Flash Player causes your Mac to be antiquated?

    The link Tattooed has supplied will work if your computer is an Intel model. If not download 10.1./102.64 for PowerPC:-

    Always helps if you provide computer specifications.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    If you have a PPC Mac, most sites will no longer play content because they detect Flash 10.1 as too old.

    There is a hack to fool the browser into detecting Flash as version 11 - I am currently using it successfully on a PPC PowerBook; in fact I can view the BBC iPlayer, YouTube etc. with no problems.

    I don't know how long it will continue to work, but see Hack Allows PowerPC Macs to Access Flash 11 Content for more info.

    Hope this helps,

    Cheers

    If you're on 10.5 on a PPC computer, then that thing is AT LEAST six years old.

    I think you know the true answer to this question as opposed to the workarounds offered.
