YouTube on the Archos 70 Tablet
I'm new (obviously). I bought a new Archos 70 and after a multitude of problems and system crashes, I have "most" of it working.
However, it won't play YouTube videos. Is it supposed to play them? I read somewhere that YouTube videos worked OK on the Archos 70. When I try to play a YouTube video, it says "you need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video." Can someone help me on this?
Thanks for any info.

You must(should) install three things.
1. Update to the latest Firmware 2.1.08
2. Install Google Market using ArcTools or GAppsInstaller_V5 or newer for Android Market install. You may also be forced to do the "Market Fix"
3. Install Flash from Appslib market. It is the most stable Flash for Archos.
Once installed, you should be able to play Flash and download YouTube from Market and install. NOTE: You may not be able to play HD Flash in a consistent manner. These are known issues until Adobe finally certifies Archos. Archos will then have HW accelleration capability. This has been in queue since January.

Thanks for the reply. I already updated to 2.1.08 but I found an app on another forum, Youtube 2.1.6 by Google Inc and it's awesome! HQ no problem. Just watched Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull - On The Floor in HQ and Jennifer's looking pretty good! :-)
