    Installed BBC iPlayer app ...told me I needed Flash...went again to app market -

    only choice Flash11 (no other choice)..installed that and iPlayer won't play....

    Not 100% sure but I think someone posted that if you bypass the App and go straight to the BBC iPlayer site online you can get it to work.

    Try a forum search. There are many threads about BBC iPlayer. It has issues but some people have found varying solutions which may or may not work for you. The best way to find those threads is to use the search.

    I've just about given up...I've tried earlier version of Flash (10.2) - that should work - NO
    Downloaded OPERA mobile browser - NO GO
    Downloaded SKYFIRE browser - agani NO GO...
    ADOBE site doesn not even (officialy) recognize ICS 4 on Zenethink...
    PLAY store just downloads Flash 11.2 and puts it on/installs but its (officially) incompatible with ICS Android 4 on ZT... That's why it won't run BBC and other flash programs - WE'RE BEING RIPPED OFF

    I'm returning my ZT and getting something a bit better....

    What version of the ZT280 do you have? Is it the C91 Upgrade? If so the only version of flash that works with this device is Adobe 10.2. However, just to complicate the issue, the only Adobe Flash 10.2 version that work is the one that came preinstalled with the tablet. You will need to uninstall any version of flash you already have and then use the AppInstaller (found by using the 6 square button top right hand corner of the screen), navigate to /mnt/flash then /mnt/flash/media/pkg2.1.apk. Once istalled you. Will need to change you browser settings so that the browser type is android. Once you have done this adobe flash should be available on your tablet. Hope this helps.

    I have e.mailed zenithink about my C91 and there reply was they don't plan any upgrades for this model and they have launched newer models and are phasing this one out so no hope of ever using iplayer or sky player.
    This is an absolute disgrace. Any one got any more ideas

    Bbc iplayer now requires bbc media app. All mobile devices are no longer being supported by flash and are moving to html5 hence why you can't even get flash on android Jellybean. So i wouldn't worry about not having flash any more. It's becoming redundant

    Please can anyone tell me. I have just got an Elonex eTouch 1012 ET v2 (Android 4.0); it was a mad moment in toys r us, for £99. is this the same device as ZT 180 / 280 ???

    I am just discovering all the things it can't do; compared to my desktop running Windows XP with Firefox and IE8. I have tried multiple differing browsers from the App Shop with multiple different versions of Flash. BBC iPlayer, not even close. Files like Player , only Firefox displays the page correctly and tells me the embedded video needs a plug-in for Windows Media Player. The others didn't even get that far, not even UC Browser that works with Flash 10 on my Samsung Galaxy Y phone. And I can't get the HDMI to work any which way. I think it is going back unless someone knows how to make it work. Elonex support does not respond.
