    Hello all,

    I love my Galaxy S, Captivate but the one website I love to go to does not play any videos for me. Pinkbike.com is my home planet, and of course there is a video of the day, and many other videos, but I can't watch any of them. And of course, I can watch youtube all day. What gives?

    Please and thank you. James

    I just checked, and I can watch the video. If it is important to you, do some reading and research on XDA-Developers. You will need to flash an Android 2.2 based ROM so you can use Flash. This is not a task to be undertaken lightly, but I have had excellent results. YMMV

    Good luck!

    Just to elaborate: The Captivate has Android 2.1 which does not support Flash. Android 2.2 "Froyo" includes Flash support but is not officially released for the Captivate yet. It is coming soon. There are hacked-up ROMs based up leaked internal "beta" builds that people are using but all the variations have some quirks/issues and the install and use of them is not for the feint of heart or the technically-challenged. There is no shortage of risks, compromises, "gotchas", or people who decided it wasn't worth it and want to go back to 2.1 until 2.2 is officially released. Nor any shortage of people who've "bricked" their phone trying to play the ROM hacking game.

    So, it would be best to just wait until the 2.2 comes out?
