    Im seeming to have problems viewing videos over the internet. This doesn't apply to youtube videos as i can watch this with no problems. It's just other sites whch seem to be the problem and im not sure why. Some are ok and some that video screen doesn't show up. Is this something to do with flash cos im sure i have it if youtube seems to work.

    Also at times it requires me to download to watch does this mean i can't stream and watch in real time.

    Yes! It is because of the flash player that you are not able to watch some videos over the internet.

    The Wildfire S only comes with Flash Lite, so a lot of flash videos won't play. Wildfire S is not supposed to have the right hardware to run full Flash Player. Have you tried the DolphinHD browser, some people say that works better with flash.
