In order to watch these videos the browser has to be flash enabled, and as of right now, Flash is not yet available for Android devices. Give it some time, it is a work in progress....

Here's the guy from Adobe showing a demo of flash 10.1 for Android. So it appears to be close.

Very soon there will be a big update for the Android operating system, version 2.1. You will recieve a notification to update, it will be a lot like when you first setup your phone. It will be very obvious. This really has nothing to do with playing video, but the new Adobe Flash Video Player (scheduled to arrive before the first half of the year is over), is being designed to run on version 2.1. Facebook, Hulu, and many other internet sites use Flash for videos. We just have to be patient for a little longer.
