Default Browser/video not supported

Today, the wife asked if I would put the Jodi Arias trial live stream on the tablet for her..Went to the site http://www.wptv.com/dpp/news/national/jodi-arias-trial-live-video-stream-arias-explains-lies-during-intense-cross-examination[/URL] clicked on the stream link and got this message" This video cannot be played. The browser may not be able to handle this video codec". I got this message on the OS browser, Dolphin and Firefox browsers..how is this rectified?????

I haven't tested this myself, but if the video is flash you'll need the puffin browser, its in the play store and as far as i know its the easiest, if not only, way to stream flash videos. The other option is bs player, also in the play store. If you use bs player and clicking the link to stream the video doesn't ask if you want to open the stream with bs player you'll need to add the stream manually to bs player (i have no idea how to do this, but i know it can be done. My best guess is puffin will fix the issue.

Hope this helped

The Puffin browser seems to work, but I notice that the embedded flash is only good for 14 days unless you get more users yada yada yada..So will have to keep my eyes open for something else..thanks
