x-shockwave-flash plug in for Mac

I'm trying to access "old" Camtasias on my intel Macbook Pro. I don't know what version the Camtasias were created in. I've been told they will only work using Internet Explorer. When I do this, I get the box saying content of mime type application/x-shockwave-flash but you don't have a plug-in installed.
I have loaded the latest flash player but this didn't help. I've also tried to Repair Permissions in Disk Utility without success. I've re-started the computer as well. Yes, I have tried Safari and Firefox to see if the Camtasias work without success. Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Unfortunately I still can't get it to work :( I've installed Perian and tried all browsers and nothing happens.

Flash player and Shockwave player are two different things. You already installed latest Flash player, now you need to install Shockwave player. Download and install Shockwave player from this link:

It should works on Safari 2.0, Safari 3.0, Safari 4.0 or Safari 5.0
