    "This video requires you to upgrade your flash player" Your device isn't compatible with flash player! I've had this happen when trying to watch online videos such on NBC episodes of tv shows. Is there any way around this?

    You can try a browser like Skyfire or (I believe) Cloudbrowse which can deal with Flash on some, but not all sites after a fashion. Likely there's a way to do it if you jailbreak your iPad as well but otherwise no, Flash is not supported and not likely to be any time soon given Mr Jobs stated aversion to it.

    Thank you - I read that article about Flash from Mr. Jobs and I did do a search but had no luck. It's just frustrating when I see something I want to watch and it's not available but yet it would be on my Android phone or my pc but why would I want to go there when I have this nice IPad in front of me.

    I had this same problem but did not read the article at the time of Mr Jobs approach to flash but I did a search and found skyfire so I downloaded it and I have not yet come across a problem with it not being able to show a video clip, TV program or what ever you are going to use it for, so it might be worth trying that before you rule out never playing flash clips on your iPad.

    Yeah. But really ~ Flash is just an never ending issue/question/thread on there and quite frankly, the Mods just may agree!

    People just get annoyed when it is felt that one should have known flash is not and will not probably EVER be on the iPad, before buying it.


    Bottom Line:

    Some will get rude and extremely annoyed! Sorry about that.

    Well, billb1950 is now well aware of how some of us feel about the Flash issue. Hopefully he will come back and enjoy all this forum has to offer. If not, I don't blame him.

    You can start a poll if you want, but IMHO it would pretty much be a waste of time since I can tell you how it will turn out.

    You can bring the Bundy, but if the time comes when Apple mobile devices ever play Flash, I will open this bottle of rum that was sealed the year I graduated from high school. I haven't found a reason to open it in the past 35 years, but this might just be the reason I need!

    oaklane 76: Welcome to the forum. Just to clarify, this topic has been rehashed and rehashed over and over again. There are so many threads and posts of why doesn't the iPad have Flash. The forum is riddled with this topic and threads have been closed due to users getting obnoxious over it. There has been a long history to it. And even though I am newer to the forum, I am not new to iOS. I have had an iPhone since day one, 2007, and iOS has NEVER supported Flash, ever. It has been a well documented fact. Even as a long time iPhone user, I went ahead and got an iPad knowing full well it does not have Flash. I did get the Skyfire Browser app for the heck of it and it's funny because I can't come up against a Flash site to save my life right now, at least not when I'm trying to on my iPad. Clearly this is not the case with you. You could try Skyfire but that's your business to purchase it or not too. I hope you will stick around and enjoy the forum and the iPad.
