    I get emails with a .WMV attachment. When I try to open it asks: "Open with Good Reader". But when I go to that app can't start video. Does the iPad not play .WMV (sorry to sound ignorant on subject but does this have to do with Flasn not working on the iPad)?

    .wmv files are Windows Media Video files and are not supported on the iPad. It has nothing to do with Flash.

    Maybe MRoogle has some threads for you.

    No, but it has to do with WMV not working on the iPad.:D;)

    You can use "Air Video" to stream them with on-the-fly conversion from a computer though, if you can save the attachments to a PC?
