    I have to ask - have you downloaded Flash from the market? It seems strange that no browser will play flash...

    Yeah, search "adobe flash" in Android Market. Download and install app. That should solve the issue.

    I was not able to view flash videos with Flash Player 10.2 but asoon as 10.3 came out.. BAMM! watching videos on the default browser :) if it works for me should work for you! we have the same tab. Skyfire is good for watching videos but you have to click on the Video button while the default browser will play the videos like a PC browser would. Skyfire is 2.99 for full video functions. worth the money! but the default browser should work just the same

    It's odd. Flash 10.3 is installed but i get a lot of sites telling me to install flash 10.2 or higher i.e. boing boing in firefox.

    skyfire browser video works great on a500 and my HTC 2.3 phone

    it skips flash. they optimize the video and directly feed it to your device.
    their video service cost $2.99 after 3 day trial

    hulu doesn't work, but i can get video from tv.com cbs.com and tnt.tv
    probably others

    cbs.com has a lot of new and old shows. you can watch LOVE BOAT
