    Flash help/video help

    I have the latest version of flash installed from the play store but sites are telling me I don't.. I'm trying to play some videos from amazon and stock browser does nothing, not even opening a Window to play and chrome beta opens a Window but says my flash isn't up to date. I've not been successful with either googleplay or amazon for watching videos :-(

    Make sure your browser is Flash compatible, and that you have it set to get Desktop sites. Some browsers it is called "User Agent String", others "User Agent" and in the Browser with ICS is it a tickbox that says "Request Desktop Site"

    Now, for a list of browsers and Flash Compatible:
    Stock Browser - Yes (Does not remember the Request Desktop Site)
    Boat Browser - Yes
    Chrome - No
    Dolphin Browser HD - Yes
    Dolphin Mini - No (also cannot set User Agent)
    Firefox Beta - No (to set the User Agent get the add on "Phony")
    Firefox Pre Beta (called Nightly) - Yes (to set the User Agent get the add on "Phony")
    ICS Browser+ - Yes (Need ICS to get this)
    Maxathon - Yes
    Opera Mobile - Yes
    Opera Mini - No (also cannot set User Agent)
    Overskreen (floating browser) - Yes

    Some sites do not allow you to even try to use Flash content if you are in a Mobile browser.
