Just tried a few out on the BBC news page. Working just fine for me, both embedded in the page and optionally full screen.

Was it not supposed to? :D

seems to run brilliantly on my 2 droid machines. literally no problems whatsoever :rolleyes::apple:
Other than a few videos (that usually can be accessed from the website's app or are found on YouTube), there's no point in Flash. Even Adobe themselves said Flash is dead on mobile devices.

If by watered-down you mean "not having to see pages flooded with Flash ads" then, yeah, that DOES suck! :rolleyes:

They work absolutely fine for me, wether I use the app OR the web browser. ;)

False you do not have a magical phone. Your idea of no problems may be a little off in compared.
unfortunately i do not have a magical, "resolutionary (LOOOL)" phone/tablet. I mean it has unmagical features such as a microsd slot, standard SD slot, a charging keyboard dock, a USB 2.0 port, a superamoled screen

worst of all, i can't.....

facetime. oh no.


btw, resolutionary is the second most cringey buzz word after "Retina"

dont care what adobe says

dont care what's in the future

I just want video content to work on my phone NOW and right NOW flash works well. Of course, my sgs2 renders HTML5 great too so what's the issue?

Carling cup final streamed from the BBC website was awesome by the way:rolleyes::apple:

So the developer of flash is trying to convince people not to use flash on mobiles and you don't care? Doesn't that tell you something about flash?

I have to say, I can probably count the amount of times I have gone to a website that needed flash on a mobile device, and when it didn't work, I didn't go back. No flash dependent site is that important - you know, because all the sites that aren't porn cater for html5 or at least degrade extremely well without flash (theres some good porn sites that use html5 to haha).
