    Hi all,

    I have a Motorola Moto G with android 4.4, and I was hoping to play videos from a partuicular website. An example url is below :-

    Goed Geluimd Hof - Straten van Amsterdam - AT5 Gemist

    I've tried playing the video in Chrome and I get the error "Error loading Media: File could not be played". I then tried the video in Firefox after downloading the flash apk, and get the same results.

    I'm assuming this is a flash issue? Can anyone tell me if they're able to play the video above, and/or if they know of any potential workarounds.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Assuming you installed the 4.x Flash, not the 2.x/3.x Flash, use Dolphin Browser. Chrome doesn't support Flash. Firefox sometimes supports it and sometimes doesn't.

    Have you downloaded and installed the flash player app?

    Well, I'm not sure if you meant this app, but after reading your post, I searched the Play store for "Flash Player" and downloaded Photon Flash Player, which plays the videos perfectly, thank you.

    If you can recommend anything better, I'd be glad to hear it, but Photon seems absolutely fine.

    Thanks again.

    Er... Yeah, that's what I meant, sure! I was referring to the (was) official app which has been pulled from the Play Store, and can be downloaded online in apk form. However it seems like we've managed to solve your problem then, and so you should be fine with the one you have now

    Photon Flash Player? Interesting.

    I've been polling web developers to use HTML5 instead of Flash, myself.
