    Ever since I upgraded my Samsung 10.1 android to 4.0.4 it stopped streaming video from most sites.

    it will work with apps like netflix, but it is a brick on any browser.

    Any answers?

    Thanks for the thought. I have used Dolphin for years. It failed, as has 6 other browsers I have tried. The closest I got was with Firefox with the flash addon installed. I get the video without sound.

    I am about to bail on Samsung....

    I'm thinking with all those problems you should consider a factory reset. Something isn't right but I doubt it's the tablet.

    I had the same problem on both my Samsung devices: my galaxy note and my 8.9"tablet. I use dolphin on both and after I upgraded to 4..04 no more videos streaming exactly as it happened to scoast. I fixed it though. I went on my browser settings - user agent.....I had mine set on desktop so I switched it back to Android and now I can stream like I did before the upgrade.

    That sounds like a good solution. For sure.
