MacMost Now 504: How To Install Flash On Your Mac

Some newer Macs may not come with Adobe Flash installed. You can install this popular browser plug-in yourself by going to Adobe's site and downloading it. Flash allows you to view some video, game and other interactive content in your web browser.

    I have no video from my webcam in flash apps with flash 10.1.

      Perhaps that webcam isn’t supported. I’d contact Adobe support.

    Hi Gary, thank you for all the useful contents.
    Could you enlighten me and tell me, why is it, that Flash will not run on iPads? Is this definitive? Or may we hope to use it some time in the future?

    Have a good day.

      The Flash Player browser plug-in won’t work on iPads because the iPad’s version of the Safari browser doesn’t support plug-ins. So Adobe, the maker of Flash, can’t build one.
      Given what Apple has stated in the past, it does not look like plug-ins will ever be supported in the iOS browser.

    I have seen on Macbreak Weekly they have said if Apple wanted you to use flash they would have installed it. I watch Macmost Now on Tivo like the TWIT shows and wonder if the mac users here believe it is ok to run flash on a mac with out security concerns.

      There are lots of browser extensions and plug-ins and Apple doesn’t really install any of them. Flash was an exception for a while, but it is hard for a company like Apple to produce versions of the OS and also keep third-party plug-ins up-to-date. Adobe provides everything you need to install and update Flash, so Apple doesn’t need to.
      As a Flash developer, I do hope you do use Flash. A lot of good content on the Web is in Flash format. Everything has security concerns. The only way to stay completely secure is to stay off the Internet.
      Did you have any specific concerns? What are you afraid will happen?

        I have always used flash on my Windows computers and after watching an episode on MacBreak it kinda made me wonder if Flash and Mac’s were not a good fit. I enjoy both shows and wondered what your opinion of Flash was. Since you are a developer and a Mac show maker I am glad you took the time to respond to my question.
