    Anyone discovered a browser that lets you watch, for example, Fringe on Fox? I've tried Perfect Browser, and Skyfire. Skyfire lets you view some flash movies, but doesn't work.

    Seems to work so far, although extremely choppy. That may be my work network however, I'll test more from home.

    iSwifter worked great for me the other day on the FOX website. Hulu on the other hand is too slow.

    I have tried & purchased iSwifter but for me, the app loses sound after 5 min! Anyone else experience this? Other than that, I think it has the potential to be great:(

    I would be careful because iSwifter is actually a remote session on a server. So you are basically browsing the net from another computer (Mac and Firefox). I've found out that this session seems to be shared between the users as you can see already visited sites by the links color in google search engine. So I would not put any passwords in there or any critical info like credit card number.

    Just for fun, type in the URL bar : "about:" (without the quotes)

    Yes, I have been having this problem. Volume goes out. Just opened and tried a video ... volume would not even start.

    I previously emailed the developer but got no response.

    I'll be careful, I had figured that much out being able to go to ABC and others alike. Being in Europe usually that's impossible ;-)

    Well, I just did an update for iSwifter and it fixed the audio problem; however now there seems to be some sort up snafu that just shuts down the site your viewing after a few minutes! Sheesch.......

    Yes, you need to buy the app to avoid that...

    iSwifter is not great. It is sluggish and unpredictable. ipad was never meant to deal with flash.

    I use iswifter and it's a pain, but I haven't had any problems. It's worked fine. Mostly used it to watch Nikita.

    The application works fine. I use it everyday. It has its moments yes, but it usually works just fine.

    I did buy it, the first time I fired it up:( Im gonna give it another go, hoping its just a temp glitch. I actually like the app, when it plays. I watched ANTM on the CW network, and Survivor, on CBS.....they played fine till the audio issue.

    You can use desktop/laptop control software like Splashtop to play flash videos in you computer browser and stream them to your ipad. Splashtop works great on your home network, but requires some knowlege of port forwarding to work outside of your home network. It has the added bonus of being able to basically turn your ipad into a Mac or PC. You can use any software including playing games. People have used slashtop, for example, to play World of Warcraft on their ipad.
