    Hi, I'm using Dolphin or Opera and when I go to a site with flash video (failblog, dailymotion, etc.) it opens up with the flash video embedded in the browser.

    I hate this because the buttons are too small to press, so I'd rather have the video open up in a 3rd party player like moboplayer. Is there any way to send the video out to the app?

    Thanks!

    Skyfire will open some videos in your selected video player (from sites like Youtube), but not all. It does a great job of rendering all Flash videos though, even those that are played within the browser. Videos are much smoother because they are rendered on an external server.

    I use Opera for browsing and Skyfire for videos.

    You must buy the video license key to have access to these features though.

    Thanks! I'll check that out, but I prefer not to have to buy my browser app. Anybody else know whether there any other ways to do it?
