Adobe Flash issues with Mac OSX 10.4

This is slightly off-topic but in order to listen to wildlife sound  
tracks on Soundcloud I need to have a flash player.

And having that flash player, I need a web browser that recognises it  
as a plug-in.  I've been using the web browser Firefox, and it worked  
just fine with Adobe Flash Player.

But then a couple of weeks ago  Firefox updated itself automatically  
then told me it would not work with OSX 10.4 (which I use) and  
demanded 10.5 as a minimum.  There is no such thing as an old version  
of Firefox.  Exit Firefox.

Back to Safari and Opera, updated Safari, updated Adobe Flash  
Player.  Safari would not recognise it at all, Opera only did sometimes.

Looked at forums, this is a recognised issue, but  Camino browser was  

Downloaded and installed Camino, and as of today, it will play  
Soundcloud tracks and seems to recognise Adobe Flash Player v 10.3.1.

I mention all of this in case anyone else is having the same problems.

But it looks like I will soon be forced to upgrade to Mac OSX 10.5 or  
Message: 10.
Subject: 6 -- however I am in the middle of another project with my  
computer full of sound files and do not wish to upgrade just yet.

Seems if you don't keep up with upgrades, even if your computer is  
working perfectly, some functions will be withdrawn by the forces  
'out there'.
