    When you click on a flash video you should get an option to open it in the internal viewer...

    Post a link that does not work, and hopefully some one running 1.5 will test it for you, im running 2.1 so its slightly different, failing that try Skyfire it has a built in flash viewer

    I was trying to watch some videos in bbc iplayer, it says it requires flash and redirects me to adobe site but it is not supported for htc hero.

    The same is the case with skyfire as well. And i have my own small online flash radio it is also not loading thru any of the browser.

    @admin : can i post link here??

    I've never been given that option, most of the Flash stuff I've tried is via bbc.co.uk; I've also put some *.flv files on my SD card and can't play them either, should these be playable through the Flash player too?

    I've tried 3 different browsers (I'm on HTC Hero), and Scrabble starts to load, then just stops.
    Has anyone found a flash player for Android 2.1 that will play Scrabble on Facebook?

    Thanks!!
