I installed Camino 2.1, now youTube's not working, is there some compatibility issue?
Works in Safari. I have OSX 10.4 PPC and flashplayer10_1r82_76_ub_mac.dmg installed.

Your version of Flash is too old (and insecure); we actually show a specific error message, but YouTube does its own Flash detection and prevents our error message from displaying, showing their entirely useless message instead :-( (You can see our error message on Adobe's Flash version-detection site, however).

(Also, the Flash version check on the page we display after you launch a new version should have warned you that your version of Flash was too old and directed you to install the latest version for PPC.)

The latest (and last) version of Flash 10.1 for PPC Macs is 10.1.102.64; you can obtain the latest PPC version of Flash from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ Once you've installed it, you will have to click the Flashblock placeholder (or add an exception for all of YouTube) for the videos to play.

See http://wiki.caminobrowser.org/QA:Camino_2.1.x_and_Flash for more details about this new security feature.

thanks, that seemed to help. I was sure the version I mentioned was the latest, but I guess it wasn't.
