10.6 and older no longer support flash, if you can not upgrade you to OS 10.7 or newer you are stuck.

    I am running latest Flash with 10.6.8. No issues. if you cannot upgrade through the Mac, go to Google and download the latest version from Adobe. They will try to sell you a Cloud subscription, but ignore that ad.

SOURCE: videos play slow and choppy but sound is ok

The video is choppy because your computer is not powerful enough to decode the video. The imac g3 was a great computer in its day but it was never designed to run the graphically intensive programs of today. OS 10.4 already places a lot of demands on an older machine. Adding youtube video only exasperates the problem as there simply isn't enough processing power or memory to run the pretty aqua user interface of OS 10.4 and decode video at the same time.

Adding more ram may help (256 MB is not very much these days) but truth be told I don't think you will see much of an improvement given the low power of the G3 processor. Sorry to say it, but if you want to watch flash videos (youtube) with any level of reliability you are going to have to look for a newer machine. You probably could find a used imac g5 for a good price on ebay or maybe treat yourself to a new imac. Rumour has it Apple will be coming out with a new model in the next few days (weeks) so keep on eye out for that if your thinking of buying new.

SOURCE: repair permissions...always reporting error...why?

Same exact errors as the person posting above. The only difference is that I have the 2.4GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Desktop.

SOURCE: imac g4 lcd black screen replaced pram battery

If you can find an older SVGA monitor, try hooking it up to the port on the back of your mac. If you get video then chances are the LCD display is shot.

SOURCE: need assistance transferring video to imac

The Panasonic PV-GS12 will transfer video in video record mode and video playback mode using the DV connection (IEEE) Firewire port. PC Mode is restricted to memory card access via USB. If after connecting it in this manner if it does not work try this. With everything connected via firewire and iMovie running. switch the camera to PC mode and the import window should pop up. You may get a comunications error and if you do then switch to playback mode. The import window should stay open and you can control your camera with the iMovie controls.

SOURCE: slow youtube problem not caused by slow processor

This is not caused by spyware.
A recent QuickTime update is the culprit. PowerPC Macs all over the world are experiencing this symptom. There's no known fix for it; hopefully Apple has a fix in the works.

How do I disable web guard on imac computer


Depends on the browser you're using. Check your preferences in Safari & make sure 'enable plugins' is checked. If you have any extensions downloaded the make sure it doesn't block access to the sites you're referencing. You can also try firefox as an alternative browser. Good to have an alternative just in case.

Would like access to youtube but there i a blocked plug in.


you don't say which browser you're using; if you're using Chrome, there is a bar at the top just below the web address that will offer a link to allow the plugin to be used. Generally that language is not used on browsers other than Chrome, but, if you still have the problem, describe it in better detail.

When i try to watch a video on youtube where the video plays turns green and it causes flash player to turn off how do i fix this


Update of Flash player can help. If you use IExplorer, you can try with Mozilla Firefox browser, because flash plugin is little different in coding. If you can not see in real time video, you can download from YouTube to computer and than you can play (I suggest VLC player). You can download with installing DownloadHelper plugin in Firefox. It will add icon with rotating points with some arrow. You just click on arrow and you have list of videos for downloading. FLV is for flash, and MPG for MPEG video coding (the same video is in different quality). Sometimes your problem can be with directx. Try to update it too.

My laptop dont seem to want to stream certain videos.. my youtube works fine however im just wondering if you can give me some information as to why mine wont even get to the stage of playing for a few...


If you are streaming videos from websites it can be your browser intentionally blocking the content because of badly configured / over sensitive security settings, or you might be missing the plugins for some web media streaming applications, normally Microsoft Silverlight (free, and available through Windows Update or Microsoft download center) and Adobe Flash player (free, available at adobe.com) would cover most of the plugins used today.

For playback issues of video files located on your system you will need an updated video playback device, Media Player Classic is currently the top shooter in terms of compability and storage efficiency found at:

I cannot watch certain videos on youtube, some of which i have previously viewed in the past.


Hi
chances are that your adobe flash player plugin needs updating, after adobe releasing a newer version. Google 'adobe flash player' and visit their site and follow install instructions, then it should work again next time you launch internet explorer.
I had same problem.
Hope that helps?
