Default How Can I View Flash Embedded Video?

Hi all. I just got my Razr M, had the original Incredible for over 2 years, and I love the phone so far untill......I went on Chrome and found I couldn't watch flash embedded videos. I googled it and saw that flash isn't supported anymore by chrome, tried firefox and opera with no joy. Does anyone know what or how I can be able to watch flash videos on the Razr M?

IMO, don't waste your time trying to figure out how to make flash work on Android, of course this is possible, but for for how long? Adobe don't want flash on Android:
Adobe Flash for Android will be discontinued starting tomorrow

But if you insist:
Adobe Flash on new Jelly Bean devices - here's how you can still get it

Welcome to AF, surferzach! Yeah, Chrome won't support Flash. I see a lot of people use the Boat browser to watch flash content.

I also came from an incredible 2 to the M.
I was wondering if anyone has tried installing flash.
When I heard that it was being not supported anymore I saved the apk from my last phone.
I was just wondering if anyone has tried installing flash and getting it to work with chrome?

I just read the link provided by "kadimi"....
so what is googles plan for viewing web videos besides utube?

So I found a way in case anyone is interested. I initially found out about not having flash by trying to go to incredibox.com (a friend told me to check it out). After trying many different things, I went back to incredibox.com and clicked the link to download flash. This link actually brought up flash player 11 in google play even though I couldn't get to it in the Play store before. I downloaded and installed it, tried downloading a few browsers (Dolphin, sky, etc) but they would not pull up true desktop sites 100% of the time. Downloaded Firefox, enabled the flash add-on, and there it is....regular working browser.
