    Hi, I am new to apple iPad. I know apple doesn't allow flash player to be downloaded. I'm having trouble playing some videos and buffering is slow. Is there something called HTLM5 that can be downloaded in place of FLASH. If so how do I download? Thanks

    HTML 5 is a web standard which encompasses the new video standards. Nothing to download and many sites are already compliant.

    I see, that was very helpful. But then why is the buffering still very slow and I still can't play certain videos, like on adds, you tube etc???

    To play youtube, you must have a very strong internet connection. I know when I try to play youtube videos, and I am not home where I tap into my wifi, but out in the field and on 3G, it is just not as good.

    Iswifter plays flash. Just open it up and type the URL of the flash site and hey presto!
