This is a discussion on Puffin Browser - anyone tried this? within the iPad Apps forums, part of the iPad App Store category; Originally Posted by Ric Clarke Originally Posted by sjleworthy I still can't. Flash is soooo hit and miss. More miss. I've yet to find a ...
Well I downloaded this app as you are saying it has flash plugin.....
Well it does and most flash base sites works ok.
I really wanted this to work as I like using my pad for tv catchup.
I have the BBC iplayer app and needed something to play itv player.
Loaded the site all ok so far, selected a tv show to watch, the flash symbol show and the tv show started to load
Then it came up with a message saying it was only available in the uk, (I live in the uk)
So can someone tell why I get this message.
Simple. Puffin is really a connection to a remote server that renders the flash website and then streams this content to the Puffin client. Because the puffin servers (which are actually what are accessing the ITV website) are not located in the UK the media they are trying to play back for you is blocked. This also affects Skyfire & iSwifter. Unless they use a server based in the UK or some kind of localised proxy, you will be unable to view territory restricted content. This also affects some BBC content as well as others.Originally Posted by Tazzmon
Ok thanks donka....
I had a feeling that is what it was.
The first flash browser that gets round this territory issue gets my £££. I need localised support so I can view football highlights on BBC. iSwifter said it was coming but the issue remains...
I cannot get any sound with this browser. Can anyone help me with this.? Thanks
At the following site:
Sorry, system won't let me post complete web address. Edited by Moderator ~ that is because you are not to post outside links. Read the rules ~ SP
But, try to view any "live draw" and you will get very choppy video, and no sound.
what to do?
Use your laptop for flash

Puffin has made some updates which make the browser better. Almost 100 percent of the flash supported sites work with this browser. It is still a bit jumpy but it works. I have not found a better browser to view the flash than Puffin.
The latest update made "puffin" faster. the flash work well.
