    Hi guys,

    I'm a new owner (just got mine today), and I'm trying to figure out what sites we can use the our browser's flash video support with.

    So far I've established

    homestarrunner.com and Happy Tree Friends are both working fine.

    sadly, the same can not be said for

    hulu.com or crackle.com

    what flash sites have you folks been playing with?

    Homestarrunner? Sweet. I haven't actually been there in a while. Great reason to go see what Strong Bad and "friends" have been up to.

    Hulu.com definitely doesn't work. Others I am not sure of because most sites that i have gone to the flash will work but very slowly.

    Espn hasn't worked for me. Neither has cnet. Only youtube videos have worked.

    Who cares if youtube works? There's an app for that. Am I only on the espn thing? Am I doing something wrong?

    I can see videos on espn and cnet, is that what you were referring to?

    Hulu doesn't even work on skyfire, they stopped it.


    If I'm not mistaken, the default browser takes you to mobile websites, however you can get around that by entering about:debug as the url. Then go to settings, UAString.

    Or you can use Dolphin HD or skyfire.

    EDIT: sorry, I got my forums mixed up. I have the Droid 2. I surf the Incredible forums because my girlfriend has one.

    Not sure if these are Flash sites (I think they area)....but Bandcamp sites seem to not be able to stream music. You press the play buttons and no music plays....nothing happens.
    Example:
    Into The Infrasounds | Monophonics

    Is this true for everyone else as well? If not, why is mine not working.

    Flash sites are working for me, but only on the default browser. It does not work on Dolphin HD, but I'm guessing it's not supposed to? Anyone know for sure?

    By the way ESPN just worked great for me. I had that Chris Johnson video playing the same time as my Incredible was, timed up perfect and the Incredible stayed with it perfectly. The initial load time was a bit longer but once it started it was great, I got lucky with the exact play time.

    Clear all your cache and history in the settings for the default browser and make sure "mobile view" is unchecked then close your browser. Reopen it and espn should work for you now. That's what I had to do. Hope it helps you.

    Ufc website it's soooooo busy. I did a comparison, my phone with 2.1 and another incredible with 2.2. The difference was hands down so at least it's worth it now to visit the site.

    Pretty much, I figured people knew about this site but it works quite well on the inc and always updates with new shows every week.

    What's with the formatting on this thread? Geesh, seems a bit crunched to me. Maybe it's the grand scale of pool_sharks muscles that makes everything seem smaller by comparison here. Who knows. :D

    Alright, I just looked at this site. You realize it's only a matter of time till this site gets shut down. This is like Pirate Bay but streams movies straight from the website. Enjoy it while it lasts. Watching Machete right now, LOL.

    Version 1 on the site buffers too much. Version 2 puts the ad behind the player screen so you cant click "close the ad to play". I dont see how you like this site??????

    Don't click Version 1 or 2, just click "hide ad & play video". Works great for me!

    Yea thats automatically version 1. And for me it buffers too much. Unwatchable. I have full 3G service.
