    Ok, so if you go to CNN.com and want to view a news clip, it will not work.:eek: :( Anyone know a work around. I am not a huge Youtube person, I do however enjoy watching the news on the different news outlets.

    I hope someone will find a solution for this fast!

    The phone needs flash.

    Are there any phones that actually HAVE flash?

    yes, it irks me as well. I also thought that youtube was flash so i was wondering why other vids won't work. Hopefully they'll come out with a better browser soon.

    It looks like our youtube app implements just enough to play back video specifically from youtube.

    Full flash does lots more.

    I think that our youtube app could probably be tricked into playing flash video from other sites, but not sure how to go about it.

    i believe the YouTube videos made available to mobile phones are encoded in 3gp, not Flash.

    It's pretty incredible that Flash is not supported on mobile phones when it's the standard video format on the web. I really don't get it.

    Ok, so I am not sure what to say, is this link provided as a location for videos, because I can only hope that you do not think it is 'real news.' :D
