    Hello! this is my first post...! But for some reason I cant play videos using the HTC brower/ the one that came on the phone. Youtube works, but videos from yahoo.com dont...is this a a browers issue or just a phone problem.

    I can't view videos from yahoo either, I think its because they are flash and our browser doesn't support flash just yet. It is suppose to sometime "soon" but to my knowledge, there hasn't been a date set yet.


    oh and woohoo my first post

    I can confirm that Yahoo videos do work with 2.1 so you will be good after update.

    just so you know, the 2.1 update doesn't have anything to do with Flash support but I guess with 2.1, you can view yahoo vids regardless (according to fliptwister above).

    youtube is broken on 1.5, and the eris actually does have flash. Its only flash lite, but it lets you play some forms of flash video
