Genki English is fully compatible with the Mac upto and including the brand new “OSX Monterey” operating system!
If you haven’t already, you just need to download a new player to replace the old flash player, the best one is the Elmedia Player.
- Download the free Elmedia Video Player from the Elmedia website.
- Select File -> Open and open the Genki English MENU.SWF file.
Ninja Tip: If you are on one of the funky new “M1” Macs then you might also need to make sure you have installed Apple’s “Rosetta” software. ( This will also help you with lots of other software too!) The brand new M1 MacBook Pros that come out today we’ll be testing on as soon as we can!
And as always do be careful with Mac updates as they can often break other programs ( e.g. my music Mac is still on Mojave!) but you should be all ready to go with Genki English on Mac for quite a while to come!
P.S. Windows users, as usual, have nothing to change.
P.P.S. There is also a version of the Elmedia Video Player from the Mac Appstore. however it hasn’t been updated to the latest version yet so doesn’t always work!
P.P.P.S. If you’re on an older Mac and you’ve previously had the “Adobe Flash Player” installed, make sure it’s completely deleted just in case it gets in the way. To make double sure, back up your computer (always back up your computer when you delete anything!) then delete the following folders if you have them:
~/Library/Containers/Elmedia Player/Data/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player
~/Library/Containers/Elmedia Video Player/Data/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player
