    I'm sure that this has been asked before, but after searching the forum I came up with some older posts regarding flash player (obviously not released at that point).

    Anyways, I received my HTC Incredible and noticed that it has full flash support, but my brother's HTC Eris does not. Is there any release for flash for the Eris or does it have to wait until the full release?

    Sadly, Adobe will not support flash on the Eris because of it's older processor. For now, you can download Skyfire on the market. Skyfire is a browser where you can watch most flash videos.

    Is it just a waiting game or will it ever support it using the standard Internet browser? (aside from skyfire)

    Flash lite is good enough for the Eris.

    That was my thread with the beta in it. Now, it's available in the market. May or may not be a more open beta, but I don't like it at all.

    The newer, more sophisticated phones have Flash 10.1 support. I think anything above the 528 mhz processor is good enough for it. I say this because I'm not sure if the Droid gets Flash. I think it does, but it's on a different processor, between the 528mhz and the Snapdragon.

    Hey everyone. Now speaking of Flash Player I just got my EVO 4G and visited some sites that have streaming flash videos and I got an error sign on the video and it didn't play. Now I was on the site with the standard web browser, How can I get flash videos to play on my EVO when I'm on the site?? Should I use a different browser? I searched market for a flash player but no luck. Now Is it not playing because I don't have a Flash player or cuz Of the browser??? any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Jack.
