    I hope this is the right place to put this...

    But there's a few websites I want to try and watch videos on, but they require flash.

    I know there's a few web browsers I can download that will let me play flash videos but they all are paid (beyond a short trial period)

    Is there any way I can watch them without having to pay for an app?

    Unfortunately, I don't believe there are. And even more inconviently, these apps cannot be pirated either, as they are already technically "free", actually a pretty smart business strategy on their part.

    If you ever get the money for one, I would strongly recommend the iswifter browser, I have used it for a year and a half, and it has done nothing but improve over time.

    If you have a desktop computer you could download the teamviewer app, which allows you to view and control your computer from your device (for free), so you just open it on your computer and it will be viewable remotely from your device.

    If you want to watch Flash videos on your iPad, download the iSwifter browser inside the iSwifter App and watch to your heart's content. I watched my college's baseball games all spring on this app and they are all Flash content.

    There are so many apps which will allow you to view Flash videos and websites on your iPad. You can try with iOS Flash Video if you want something in free. Otherwise go with Photon Flash Browse. With this app you can be able to watch Flash videos and use also Flash games and apps.

    Not that I have found, but...

    Photon Flash is quite good, and is what I have, but what I've heard is really good is iSwifter. Very smooth, free for 10 minutes, but then requires an in-app purchase of $4.99. iSwifter runs off a proxy so it is great if there are regulations you want to get away from on your network. I use photon flash, and it works great! I can watch my British comedies on it and hook it up to my TV with the Digital AV adapter while I drink my morning coffee. Photon is $4.99 aswell, and both iSwifter and photon require no monthly payment. If you want something amazing, get CloudBrowse. It is $1.99 and I think from $1.99-$4.99 a month for really fast, but really good flash AND java.
    Hope I helped!

    In my tests, Photon has turned out to be slightly slower thna both iSwifter and Puffin.

    You brought Leawo DVD to Apple Converter? I also used Leawo DVD to iPod Converter, not the pro version, it's just a free version, but I used it to convert DVD to MP4 video, and it can play well in Apple TV. I don't want to spend too much money on some tools except I need the full functions. About Video Converter, I just need the function of convert video.

    You can try with Skyfire web-browser for watching flash videos on iPad. But this will support only for Flash videos not for other flash games/apps.

    I tried that a few times with some of the sites I go to, but it hasn't worked (the iOS Flash thing). Haven't checked out the Photon thing, but I think I will :D

    Continued my tests. Photon seems to be equally fast than the otehr two, recommended titles - the slowness I referred to might have been temporary.

    I've also found out that it's the only Flash browser to stream audio in stereo.
