    Hi,

    I am referring to videos or movies that are for example, online for my class. There are several "movies" and I click the link and nothing happens. Also, there is a "flash card" section for my class and nothing appears but a cube with a question mark on it.

    I hope the solution is simple! Also, I just bought the student version from Costco, I hope nothing is wrong with it, I bought it to do the homework and watch the movies for class on it!

    You will not see any Flash content untill you manually install the Flash player.

    1- Go here Zippyshare.com - android-softwares.com_Adobe_Flash_Player_11.1.115.12.apk and download Adobe_Flash_Player_11.1.115.12.apk

    2- Connect your tablet to your PC using USB cable and copy this apk file to SDcard in "Downloads"

    3-
    In your tablet go to "Settings" > "Security" > "Unknown sources" and check "Allow installation of non Market apps"

    4- Finally in "Settings" > "Storage" > "Downloads" find this apk click on it and "Install"

    That's all. Good luck

    Hi! I appreciate the answer, I saw similar answers but did not know if that pertained to my type of movies, for example from the etext site. (school)

    Did the USB cord come with the Student Galaxy 2 7.0?

    And what if someone didn't have a computer, they are FOL?

    So I click on "downloads" in my regular computer and download it there then transfer? Thanks for the tutoring! :p

    You're right. Without a computer some things can be pretty challenging. I just Googled flash and this link took me to the play store.

    This link is only working for previous devices, try to install it in a Galaxy Tab 2 and you will see that you can't.


    lala99, just navigate with your device here:

    http://www11.zippyshare. com/v/83900236/file.html
    (use Android default browser in your tab, write manually in the adress bar without spaces)

    download the file Adobe_Flash_Player_11.1.115.12.apk

    Then follow the steps from here:

    3- In your tablet go to "Settings" > "Security" > "Unknown sources" and check "Allow installation of non Market apps"

    4- Finally in "Settings" > "Storage" > "Downloads" find this apk click on it and "Install" or just double click.

    I hope this will definitely works for you !!

    Hi, 2- Connect your tablet to your PC using USB cable and copy this apk file to SDcard in "Downloads"

    What is apk file to SD card? I did what you suggested and now have "tv" for my regular computer but nothing on my tablet. Nothing shows in "downloads."

    Man this is so frustrating! I wonder if I should just get an ipad or if I have to go thru all this with them also

    it is 100 degree weather and I just wish I could view my school movies on my new tablet! Thanks for helping

    Hi, it didn't work, says my browser does not support that.

    I have tried everything, I am in tears

    Tried Bluetooth, the tablet and the laptop not reading each other

    why can't they just sell a tablet that is ready to play videos and movies?

    Can't get the download to show up from the laptop to the tablet

    Thanks for helping but I think this is to hard to explain to me!

    What browser are you using? Some browsers don't support Flash.
    Please try with the Android native browser (Internet icon)

    You can download the apk from the post above on any PC and e-mail it to yourself. Open the email on the tablet and save the attachment. Find the apk file and double-click on it. It will install itself with no USB or connections needed.

    It's not the tablet that is at fault, it the software makers...
