    Probably! I even had to come out of the browser and use Safari to post here. Skyfire browser would not bring up keypad when I tried to post. I see their homepage has a list of videos but when I click on any and that button in the lower left corner, I get a message that says No Video. What am I doing wrong please?

    Hello Michali,

    Sorry to hear that you are unable to play videos. Based on your post, it sounds like you are missing just one step in the process to view video. Skyfire does not start the process of transcoding a video until you select a desired video to watch - Here is a sample scenario: 1. Go to SouthParkStudios.com 2. Scroll to find an episdoe that you want to watch 3. Click on the desired video (let the page load) 4. Click on the 'Video' icon at the bottom left corner. Skyfire will begin the process of enabling the video to play on your iPad. Please visit our FAQ's on our website (skyfire.com) or find our support page at the same site

    Thank you, Brad from Skyfire

    Thanks for the response. I tried that...going to that site, selecting a video and then loading it, and clicking on icon...still got message, no video found.

    It is a hit and miss app.

    The poster before suggested South Park because in the preview for the app, they used a South Park video to show that flash works.

    Most of the sites I go to with flash content is not played by Skyfire.

    I just wasted $4.99 on this slow and non working app. I am planning on calling apple to ask for refund. I thought apple was more selective on apps and expected more from the developers. Be Aware this App is a hit and miss.
    Most of the site videos that I have visited are not being supported. Who cares about south Park. The SkyFire demo for the app can be misleading.

    You can get a refund by going to iTunes and then order history!

    Then you click refund or something, the instructions are on CNET

    Thanks however when I visited the Itune and under my account the purchase history option is not there to report a problem and ask for a refund. Any other suggestions.
    Thanks

    This video will explain what I'm going on about!

    Should be the same unless anything has changed since June.

    Hope it helps
