    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.

    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:

    Flash is supported on the Apple Macintosh product line only but not iphone or iPad and it will never happen. I do not miss flash on the iphone and I will not miss it on the ipad and as others have stated you will have alternatives earlier than later to watch movies etc Netflix is an example.

    Actually apple wants things to be standard. Flash is a proprietary API, and the more of those you throw in the more unstable things become. Notice how everyone now makes browsers that run plugins separately so if they crash you don't lose the browser? That's really for flash, they're just being polite.

    Return the iPad and get Google Android. I can tell from your query that is the 'tech' for you.

    The iPad is for the rest of us who do not need or desire Flash as Flash is obsolete Web technology.

    Flash is also a common security risk for those who have access to the world wide web.
    Most knowledgeable people block Flash in their PC browsers.
