    I came across an app in the market that is a web browser and they claim it can do flash. I have not downloaded it yet but its called Skyfire and I think its a Beta version.

    Ya there was just a post about it a couple days ago. It plays some types of flash video. I know espn.com works. It is still in beta, but its a very good start.

    I did try it and it does work, but I am not liking the fact that I can't find my way back to the homepage, and I have as of yet had anyone tell me where the home page button is located on Skyfire.

    If you mean the Skyfire homepage, just select the icon that looks like overlaped windows on the tool bar. That shows what tabs you have open. Scroll left or right to get to the original tab.

    Hmm, seems cool for a beta so far. I was hoping flash would be embedded in the browser instead of opening in a separate player. I'll keep it on my phone and watch for updates though. Until then I'll keep using Dolphin.

    Skyfire is pretty cool... works with Justin TV, which is nice.. I do not think it is a browser in its own right... I think it's an add on. When I installed it it just had all my links from the default browser.. and the look and feel of it is very simular... so I think it's just an add on for the default browser... very decent for a beta.

    I refuse to acknowledge this as a Flash-enabled browser until it can handle ytmnd.com

    Skyfire in not Flash-enabled. Their site servers convert the Flash site content in real-time (on the fly). In fact, they warn you they do this when you install it. Kind of like an on the fly-cookie and site traffic monitor ;) Me thinks they use the info for marketing purposes and sell it.

    Skyfire is nothing new, and I always looked at it as being more of a "virtual browser session"...much like a remote desktop. You basically use their servers to "browse the web". As stated, I was hesitant to put personal data (password to XM online, etc) via my mobile browser.

    Actually, from what I understand, the Android version differs in the fact that the web pages are fully rendered on your phone (straight from the site). The only thing rendered on their servers for Android version is the flash video, but I could be wrong...

    I refuse to acknowledge it is flash-enabled until I can watch southpark on it.

    Not from what I see. Same old "flash required" message on their website.

    well it plays megavideo, so just go to sidereel or surfthechannel, etc and then you can watch whatever tv show you want! ...better than hulu cuz way more shows available.

    I was able to get southparkstudios.com and hulu.com working on Skyfire.

    Note* in hulu, after you get the message that the vid is not supported on the platform, refresh page and play vid, itll work that time, at least for me.

    It does play southpark, just have to refresh the page sometimes. Some videos will not play, for example the paris hilton episode were butters is hilton's new dog, and she keeps spitting out ummmm white stuff from her mouth lol hahahaha, but I can acknowledge southparkstudios.com does indeed work.

    Unfortunately you missed your window :(

    Looks like Hulu has already fixed it. Can't get anything to work any more, even stuff I already watched with it earlier.
