    Question Internet content (Flash,QT,etc) on Dapper Power PC architecture


    Hello folks!

    I have been running Dapper on a Power Mac G4 for about a month or so and have a question.
    It seems that all the plug-ins (Flash,QT, etc) for Firefox,Mozilla and the like are not supported for the PPC.What can I use to view and experience multimedia content on the web?Is there a different browser that supports these plug-ins for the PPC?

    Thanx!

    Juan

    there is no flash or for linux ppc users. You might take a look at Gnash. It isn't perfect (last I saw the sound stil didn't work) but it does support ppc. However, currently it is only in experimental in debian. The codecs to support qt are also not aviable for ppc.

    Sadly this is what happens with proprietary file formats.
