    Two weeks! I've contacted Guinness book of records and they seem really interested...

    sorry, I'm kidding - try ''Splashtop'' if you have a pc or mac. Dead easy to set up. you can control your pc remotely from the iPad and stream flash content reasonably well - better than Puffin and iSwifter any way.

    There are also a few other advantages to accessing your PC remotely apart from watching flash.

    Yes - another vote from me for Splashtop. The latest release now allows you to access your PC not only from your local WiFi network but from, literally, anywhere in the world. As the previous poster mentioned, it's really easy to set up - no complex router reconfigurations, port forwarding or anything like that. You simply need to have a gmail email account - you tell both the iPad app and the remote free client that runs on your PC this gmail address and, somehow, by magic, it finds your PC. It's only supposed to be an experimental feature, but it works just fine. So you can now 'remotely' watch Flash content on your PC as long as you've a reasonable Internet connection, which you'd need for iSwifter or Puffin in any case.

    Highly recommended.

    I think this is a duh question but I'm a duh kind if fellow so...
    Does the pc need to be running to use splashtop? Can you change the website and stuff from the ipad or does it just stream what you set up on the desktop? Iow is it a Puffin/iswifter type server just using my desktop instead?
    I had Orb on my desktop and an old dumbphone that streamed media I gave it access to on my desktop(music, pictures, videos, etc) but the only "live" thing it would stream was radio and I wasn't comfortable leaving my desktop on all the time back then.

    A sticky may have prevented this thread but since it's here be nice.
    And if a thread title bothers you, don't open it.
    I don't know. That theory works well most often for many threads but likely not for this one.
    This is a subject well beaten down and one with many threads addressing it. I think I would have probably made the same "here we go again" comment.
    It is no different than the "should I put a screen protector?" one.

    See above.

    I think Tim made a great recommendation that should apply to anyone on any forum.
    Search is your friend and if unable to use it for some reason, paging through the thread titles in the forum will certainly yield results.

    You completely control your PC from your iPad. Once you've logged in, what you see on your iPad screen is exactly the same as you see on your PC screen. By using various iPad 'gestures' you can completely control your PC - I mean 'click', 'left click', 'right click', scroll etc etc...it's truly great and, hey, you've nothing to lose because there's a 5-minute view time free 'lite' version that you can try...

    Yes - the PC needs to be running but - I believe and I've been told - though I've not tried it - you can wake your PC up out of sleep..not tried this...you can lock your remote PC screen in Windows 7 so anyone in front of your monitor can't see what you're viewing - could be confidential business information, for example.

    Sure.

    I use Puffin.
    Only time I think of Flash is when I see a thread about it here.

    SplashTop is really an awesome app.

    I originally installed it to reliably play flash(something NONE of the 3rd party browswers really do) but I have been finding TONS of other uses also.

    SplashTop actually lets you do things like run Photoshop CS from your PC which is just as cool as playing flash content.
