    I'm in education, and unfortunately a great deal of educational material that's digital is flash video. Anyone heard of any work-arounds?

    I tried the App Cloudbrowse, but it can't get past my work's security, and the developer isn't helping to solve the problem.

    If you know a secret, or even rumors, let me know!

    Have you tried the Skyfire browser yet? It turns the video into HTML5 format and streams it back to the iPad so that it's viewable. I'm not sure about your work's security system though.

    But Skyfire doesn't play all flash content.
    Ibitfire is another one that is hit or miss.

    I haven't yet seen a browser that consistently plays flash.
