    Has anyone else been having problems with watching flash videos on their a500?
    They are very choppy,and prone to freeze. No problem with the wifi signal or speed so it's not that.

    Just got mine today and am very impressed thus far. Already have a samsung galaxy s, so I know the flash does work very well.

    Flash vids work great for me on the A500 and gTablet. What sites are you having issues?

    Then only websites I could think of to try it out was youtube, which actually worked.
    the other was an adult website which was the problem one.

    Flash works fine for me too, but you get Browser to play HTML5 video first.

    Type 'about:debug' on a new tab (nothing visible will happen), go to Settings, Debug, UAString, and pick iPad. Restart Browser. This will load more sites as the desktop version and will play more videos as HTML5 before flash. It can be annoying though as it goes straight to fullscreen, but on some sites it even gives you the option of using an external player.
