How to install plug-ins for Youtube

Specs: Ubuntu Linux 5.04, 128 MB
I have an iBook Model # M6497 which I had put on Ubuntu Linux 5.04 on...I get last when I try to figure out how to have the right browser..currently I have Mozilla Firefox (out of date) and how to install the version of Flash I need. Can anybody either provide user friendly instructions or a link to it. I'm pretty computer savvy but kind of new to working with Linux.

You will have to be more than computer savy with that setup. Your G3 is the issue. It puts you in a very small world. Not many G3 linux users or code writers..

I think I'd look to some other distro that still supports your model. Even then it isn't as simple as it could be.

You'd be much better off with a $200 laptop that is a x86 I'd think.

I support the 'Everybody Draw Mohammed Day'. A religion doesn't deny my freedom.

1. There is no PowerPC version of Flash for Linux. The only real option is to install Gnash, which is included with or in the repository of most Linux distributions.

2. Ubuntu 5.04 is really old. Even if there was a PPC Linux version of Flash, your version would be way too old to support the latest one. Unless you have a really good reason to use such an old version, you should use a more modern release. These would also have more functional versions of Gnash in their repositories.
