Getting the clamshell iBook to do youtube HELP!

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hello, I recently sold my macbook air and while Im getting a 13" pro, I bought my girlfriend a ibook clamshell thinking it would be all she needed since all she does is youtube stuff. Well boy was I wrong..

Im writing this from the ibook it works great but it needs the newer version of flashplayer.. Is this a possiblity? Even if I updated the OS [currently 9.2.2] Is there anyway I can get youtube videos on this baby as its the only purpose of this computer.. If not this computer is out the window.

    unfortunately, due to the stupendous lameness of Flash, the clamshell iBook is nowhere near powerful enough for youtube.

    In theory, there's enough computing power to handle the low-res videos with very well optimised playback software (which doesn't exist), but the high-res ones are definitely beyond it. Sorry.
