    Sadly still not working. I changed setting to allow Unknown sources before downloading. The app appears in my list of apps. It seems to be there but ........ Any other suggestions. Cheers

    You say you changed the setting before downloading...after you downloaded the file, did you click on it to install it? If you did, try restarting your tablet and try again.

    You're so patient. Will try restart now. Just hope I can find you/ this thread again. Don't find this site easy to use but I don't normally use anything like this.

    No luck. Still not working. Should I be able to access the flashplayer manager from the app. If so that doesn't work and the site I was trying to access still says no plugin or something like that. Do you think there is something wrong with my tablet?

    no the icon in your app drawer is just for the settings. are you using the stock web browser? try downloading the firefox app and go to the website through firefox. i know flash works in firefox

    No go again. Tried firefox and google crome. Was trying to watch documentry about Cuba crisis. Still will not play. Guess I'll have to put up with it. Samsung were no help. I appreciate your efforts and I can't ask any more of your time. But if you do think of anything else I would be very pleased. Regards Alice

    welcome to AF!!!!!!!

    i moved you to the tab 2 forum

    here is what you need to do for flash support.:

    1. go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2139513
    disregard what forum it is for. you just need the apk file.

    2. move the apk file to your sd card.

    3.use your file manager or download either es or astro file manager.

    4. within the app navigate to the apk file on your sd card.

    5. select the app by long pressing on it and select install.

    6. done!!!!!!

    hope this helps.

    Here is a direct link to the Flashplayer apk from the adobe archive.

    http://download.macromedia.com/pub/...roid/11.1.115.81/install_flash_player_ics.apk

    enable unknown sources in settings.
    download flashplayer using link above
    Open you "Downloads" app. (You will find it in your app drawer)
    The flashplayer apk will be found there
    touch it.
    it will install

    Note: Chrome browser does not support flash content even if you have flashplayer installed
    you will need to use a browser that supports flash. The stock browser should work.

    alternately you could try to find the video using the Youtube app.
