How the hell do I watch the videos on a non-intel mac...
There's gotta be a way...
I also have a non-intel mac, so I'll be using the following "hack" to watch videos:
1. Steal my brother's Macbook Pro
2. Watch fencing
I'm going to kill someone.
jk.. don't call the police...
What os do you have on the mac?
It says that Silverlight should work on Firefox/SeaMonkey/Mozilla and Safari with Mac OS 10.4/10.5 PowerPC.
There is something called Moonlight though... It's a 3rd party version of Silverlight that works on Linux... So... you could reinstall Linux through VirtualBox and use FF in Linux to watch it, but you probably won't
The mac one.
I'm going to kill someone.
Simple solution: go to the library and hope they have a pc.
Complex solution: Run an emulator over your mac. Buy a $200+ vista installation (or buy an old xp, it'll be better). Then, spend 1 hr+ trying to install it.
Oh, I almost forgot... Extremely simple solution...: buy a pc...
I updated my post after doing some more research.
anyways, back to the real topic...
Which version of OS X do you have? Click on the apple button on the top left corner and click on something that says system of some sort... that'll tell you...
then again, i hate macs, cant use them well, so if theres a mac expert round here, don't listen to me...
Um... last time we suggested linux to nein...
Well, can you run Windows on it? It would be wrong though for someone to go and download a torrent of windows 98 SE and run that over virtualbox... >_>
idk, u could try running vmware...http://vmware.com/
although i usually hate emulators, they're just another obstacle. i usually cant getum to work either... meh oh well!
i prefer to install linux straight by means of a .iso file, then burning onto a cd. (or in the case of open suse, a dvd)
I'm more familiar with VirtualBox. It's by Sun Microsystems and I know that it supports many operating systems.
ooh, or emulate the BEST WINDOWS EVA!!!!!! (windows 95)
On VB, once you have the Vdrive made, you can into the settings, on cd drive, and there's a place where you choose the .iso to mount. It runs that .iso as if it were a cd. Then you install, shut it down, and remove that .iso and it boots the virtual machine into the recently installed OS.
It says Silverlight 2.0 is for mac, but when you install it says not.
I'm not going to the library from 10 PM -3 AM
Mines latest. 10.5. something
I have a new trick, BBC through a british proxy. GG. Stupid god damned PC loving ameriacns i hate you all so much

i digress... we're helping nein with her mac right?
Now i have firefox slow as hell with a british proxy and safari open to do normal internets stuff.
