    Smile Can't download adobe flash player to ipad

    Some video sites such as hulu.com require flash player but I tried many times it came back as " download failure, safari unable to download flash player"
    It was from adobe official site. Has someone encountered similar issue like this?
    Thanks.

    Yea, uh, hate to break this to you pal but, apple and flash don't mix. Google is your friend.

    iPad doesn't support flash. However, according to Gizmodo, Hulu is coming out with an app for the iPad.

    Thanks for the input, just wondering on adobe flash downloads there was an option for Mac/safari, so "Mac and flash don't mix" ? New to apple here, how did you guys surf without flash? Tons of websites run videos with flash, ways to get around this?

    You're not pulling our leg?

    Sorry about my reaction. I really thought you were joking and probably others around here too! Then I guess I'll have to be the one who tells you.

    Apple is refusing to allow Flash to run on the iPad for security reasons. They want Flash off the web to be replaced by HTML5. It looks like a tiff between Adobe and Apple. And it's turning to Apple haters against Apple users.

    At this point, all sites using Flash will not show on the iPad properly and there's no solution. You can find better info if you dig.

    If you were serious, please accept my apologies.

    Hey iVan, thanks for the info. No hard feelings. I just though this tech chat forum should focus on solving ipad issues. Maybe i need to dig out my sense of humor sometimes
    As a pc user for 20 years, I am very impress by how apple has evolved over the past 15 years. This iPad just totally mesmerizes me. I hope apple will take this flash player thing seriously because without it we are missing a lot on the www.

    We are millions to agree with you but Apple wants things done its way and wants Adobe out of it. Apple has always taken pride in the fact that the OS' they make are security tight. So when they saw that Flash leaves users open they went all out to protect systems. But that's the official version. I'm not techy enough to know better...

    Flash on iPad won't happen. Just try to deal with that and tell the site owners who'll listen to you to change their sites. :shrug:
