    I downloaded an interactive PDF and there is a video on the last page that won't play on my tablet, but plays on my computer. I downloaded the latest version of Flash from the adobe archives, as well as an updated reader. Any ideas on what I can do to make the video play?

    Sounds like playing Flash videos isn't supported by your PDF reader app. To play the video on your tablet, try right clicking on the PDF video and clicking "Copy video URL". Then, "Paste & Go" into your browser. Not very elegant, but it should work.
