    Is there any way to get Flash on the iPad 2? Any apps or websites? Can this be done without jail breaking?

    Goodness gracious.....
    There are a few apps....iswifter....puffin browser...skyfire.....
    Ipad doesn't do flash natively.....
    Also there is a search which would have lead to many topics about this.

    thanks for the help. This is my first day on the forum, so my questions might sound dumb. Very sorry. I will look for the "search" feature and try not to ask questions that have already been answered.

    No worries. Just be warned that Flash can be a very sensitive topic within the walls of this forum.

    Quite a few forums show related topics as you type on the subject line when creating a new thread.

    I don't think IPF does, though. I know what you are talking about as I have seen it on Crackberry and other sites.

    Still though ~

    We have a Search button! We should make that HUGE and RED.:D

    Red? Why not give it a pleasant color, so that people will WANT to click on it. Red is used for warning, I bet people would just run away screaming when they see your search button.

    I've had my new iPad for about a week now. I really love it. BUT.... The one thing that I miss is not being able to watch my subscribed to videos on YouTube. I tried the app that comes with the iPad and even changed my ID and password, and it says in the box that "the video cannot be displayed at this time". And a box comes up saying that "your device does not support the videos".

    So is there anything I can do? Is there an app that will help me?

    I have been to some blogs, Facebook, and others, and HAVE been able to open and watch videos from their specific subjects.

    Also, and I don't mean to sound harsh, but now that Steve Jobs is gone, do you think Apple will rethink the Flash issue?

    I'm a newbie, so please have mercy.

    Thank you!

    Adobe has stopped mobile flash development altogether.

    You talking about which iPad ?

    I got the iPad2 and can watch Youtube fine, with the app or in the browser (iCab & Mercury). Not sure why you would have problems with it.

    Typing it twice does not make it true.

    And Android is very very far from being more stable than iOS.

    YouTube are moving away from flash video to more common cross format availability. I certainly have no issues watching YouTube clips on my iPad either through the YouTube app or embedded in Facebook/web pages. If the source is somewhere other than YouTube, then it can be hit or miss.

    YouTube works perfectly in Safari (or any other iPad browser).

    OK, here is the problem in simple English . I downloaded "Speedbit HD as someone here advised. I was able to watch YouTube videos that were in specific categories like, "Most popular", and all the other categories that YouTube lists. BUT..... I could NOT watch my SUBSCRIBED to videos. It would ask for my ID and Password, and when I typed them in, it would say "not valid". I then created a new ID and password and it still said the same thing.

    BTW, this also happens when I try to watch SUBCRIBED to videos on my Samsung HD TV, that is a "Smart TV".

    I also read Steve Jobs article on Flash and now understand bait better where he was coming from.

    I also cannot do a "proper" search for certain videos either.

    I truly appreciate all the help that you all can give me.
