    I have just upgraded from an iPhone to the HTC Desire.

    I was looking forward to being able to play flash videos, after trying to play a few (from entensity.net) I can see the player, but pressing play results in only a yellow exclamation mark...

    Is there a solution to this or is flash support not quite there yet on android?

    (Btw according to the settings menu on the phone all software is up to date.)

    Until 2.2 becomes available your best option is to download skyfire from the market, its free and will play most flash videos the net has to offer.

    You should be able to view all Flash content when the 2.2 upgrade happens.

    Damn, I used too big a date range I think. The date I pulled out was 18th October 1963. ;)

    Still probably a better guess than some of the "official made up" statements floating around the net though

    I just used my desktop-time machine to travel back. I was asking them about android updates and they all got rather excited.

    I started flailing my arms shouting "Danger Will Robinson, danger" but they didn't get that.
