    It really pains me to have to ask you guys this newbie question, but I guess I don't have any choice. And yes, I've done google searches. Couldn't find what I needed to know. And please, don't be like the linux community and give me 2 word answers that don't mean sh*t to a newbie. I know next to nothing about android. My old brain is having trouble keeping up with...

    Anyway, I have android 2.1. I've noticed that my browser can't play videos at certain sites and can't play mp3s at certain sites. What apps do I need to install?

    And no, I'm not talking about youtube videos. I already have the app for youtube.

    Flash requires Android 2.2

    Are the mp3's you're trying to play actual mp3 files or are they flash players?

    So, I cannot watch non-youtube videos on a 2.1 android? There is absolutely no app I can install to make it work?

    Update: Skyfire seems to work just fine with non-youtube videos. But I still can't play music off of websites. Any idea guys?

    Yea, for 2.1, Skyfire is the only way, and it doesnt work with all flash.

    Give us an example site of what doesnt work. Mp3s should stream fine, you are probably trying to play a different type of file.

    There ain't no viruses or malware there. Just a whole bunch of foreign music.

    How about an app to play wmv?
