    Hi,

    I have the Asus Transformer TF201 tablet and aside from YouTube videos I cant watch any other VOD or on line videos posted on different sites (news sites, funny vids sites etc.). I installed adobe flash but that didnt solve the problem. I do recieve a message saying a certain plug in is needed to play the video but not which plug in to install or any link to it.

    would welcome help solving this issue. thanks

    What browser are you using? The default Chrome-lite browser does not always play well. You may want to look at Dolphin HD, Skyfire or some of the other browsers. I use SkyFire. There are some VOD which will still not play well, but more sites are rendered correctly.

    what version of the firmware are you using? I watch vids with no issues on the built-in browser, but there were issues with earlier versions.

    Hey there, I'm having the same problem. At first if was terrible, could hardly see anything... but then did a reboot (I'm using ICS) and started using opera. Now it streams better but freezes 3-5 min before the end of the video!! Doesn't matter if it's 20, 30 or 50 min long. Doesn't matter which wifi I use. Doesn't matter which web page I'm watching from!! I'm at a loss! I live overseas and we bought the tablet primarily so I could enjoy US/English tellie....
    Has using dolphin helped you???

    Thanks gurgle. I installed the Dolphin browser and was able to watch streaming video.
