How do I install Flash on my Mac?

Episode 1051 (41:35)

Robert from Canoga Park, CA
Adobe Flash

Robert has finally saved up enough money to get a Mac, but he noticed he has to install Flash himself. Leo says that Steve Jobs hated Flash and as such, Apple stopped supporting it. Leo says he can download and install Flash from Get.Adobe.com/flashplayer. He should just make sure he gets it from the official site, and not a phoney one. He should also be careful not to fall for the scam that he needs a new version of Flash to watch a video. Download Flash from Adobe directly and install it. Once he installs it, it will auto update.

The other alternative is to use Google's browser Chrome. It comes with Flash built-in. If he goes to YouTube.com/html5, he can set YouTube to only use that and avoid Flash.
