    I have several video pieces that I need to watch online... but my iPad won't play Flash.

    Is there any ways that I can watch these video using iPad?

    If not, this is a big negative point. There are so many Flash video online.

    You just need to install the correct plugin. If you can't find it just email Steve Jobs. That's what all the cool kids are doing.

    All sarcasm aside, no your iPad will not play flash, and there are many reasons for this, which you can search for on this site.

    What?? There is no add in to play flash. If you Jailbreak it you can play flash videos is that what you mean?

    This is not exactly true. Cloudbrowse is streaming a browser playing Flash so it is not native.

    Google is your best friend.

    You must be the only person in the world that is uninformed about the iPad's inability to play Flash files. I am inclined to think you might be a troll or just bored and want to start a thread about a non-topic.

    As someone mentioned, Google is your best friend. My Mac Mini, MBP 17 inch, MBP 15 inch all play Flash but they are full size computers, with full size browsers.

    Come on dude. It is not that hard.

    Here it is simple:

    iPod touches, iphones, and iPads CANNOT play flash, because they don't support flash and there is no flash plugin for them. simple as that

    That's because flash is poorly written rubbish.
