    I was led to believe that a Droid phone could access any web site. It seem some sites override with special mobile sites, e.g. Dailymotion.com. Is there a way to bypass the mobile site and access the full site?

    Try changing the user agent in the browser settings. Anything with "Desktop" in it should do the trick.

    I forget how to access the user agent, I think its "about:useragent" in the phones browser. I think it was "about:debug" on my tablets browser. Might wanna try both of those and see if you can get in and change the user agent to desktop version or something similar.

    If you go to your browser settings there should be a "mobile view" box that you can uncheck.
