    it's there already, just not compatible with many current flash out there. you can go to market for skyfire browser to help some.

    of course, feel free to google for a hack, root and ROM (at your own risk) if you are desperate and can't wait for official froyo from sprint. i made a mistake with my evo by installing a hacked flash 10 app before froyo and it was a headache when i upgraded it.

    I have been wondering this myself. I love watching video on cnn.com and other sites from my phones, but can't do it with the Epic. This can be a little annoying to say the least. I would have thought this latest technology would be able to do this standard task of playing a video. I don't want to download yet another browser. The upgrade need to hurry up and come out.

    I've been to websites that have videos on them (worldstarhiphop) and the video played in the browser app (not playing in Video) and i thought that was pretty awesome. But there's other sites, like my blog, that have videos on them and they don't even appear on the web pg. Just an empty space where it would be.... Any Help?

    Like someone said, it was never on the phone. We got flash lite installed. It will not work with alot of sites that are flash heavy. We won't get full flash til froyo comes out for us.

    Well, I finally broke down and downloaded a new browser, xscope. I can now view most of the videos on the websites that I like to view often. However, there is still a very small number of sites that I only get that empty space where the video should be. I'm still looking for a way to get around this.

    are you able to watch cnn videos with xscope? i downloaded the latest skyfire and it won't. kind of a bummer, but froyo is not too far away. still, curious with your comment above.
