    Been to www.gizmodo.com and other sites to view videos but I end up with the flash logo instead. Is a setting that needs to be enabled? I was under the impression that the Captivate had flash light. Please let me know if you are seeing the same and/or have correct this problem.

    My understand is that it won't have Flash support until they update the phone to Android 2.2.

    Flash is not currently available on the captivate because it is not running Froyo.

    I've heard it has Flash Lite, but I don't have it enabled. Haven't tried either.....

    You know what is strange, is after rooting and using Titanium backup to get rid of some of the crap on the phone, i noticed in the app list in Titanium there is a 'Flash Player 1.0' with the flash logo as the icon. Anyone else see this? It's not in my normal list of apps obviously, but it sure looks as though there is some Flash support right out of the box. Titanium also doesn't give me the option to run this app, like it does with normal apps. Strange indeed....

    Hmmm.. I appear to have Flash support on my phone. Not sure how or why, unless installing SkyFire did something. Too funny since I keep hearing all this talk about Flash support coming in Froyo.

    Anybody can splain this to me? ;)

    skyfire uses there own servers to run the flash and send the stream to you. fire up your standard browser and you won't get the same results...
