    Can someone shed some light on this...

    I get this video feed every morning, and watch on my iPhone. It opens in quicktime automatically.

    This am, I tried it on iPad- well, says I need flash???

    Can anyone see this vid on their iPad? If so, please elaborate on how you did it.

    kthax...

    It looks like they might have two different encodings of that video.

    When I opened it in Safari on iPad, I saw that Flash v9 was needed to play, so then I used Atomic Browser, in the settings identifying itself as "Mobile Safari - iPhone" and was able to view it.

    Hope this helps! If you don't have AB yet, check it out, it's pretty nice!

    Why not contact ThinkBigWorkSmall Technical support at: support@thinkbigworksmall.com and tell them about your problem. The website could easily recognize the iPad and format appropriately.

    You can use Atomic and configure as an iPhone browser.
