    Hi,

    I am trying to play flash videos or sites (Metacafe - Online Video Entertainment - Free video clips for your enjoyment) with flash on by tab 2. But all I see is a missing plug in icon and nothing works. Chrome or other browsers that keep saying they can play flash videos also did not help!

    What do I do? Should I just give up hopes on playing those videos from the sites?

    Also, I think Chrome for mobile does not support flash, so you have to use the stock browser or another one. That's what I ended up doing.

    You need the plugin and a browser that supports it.
    Plugin https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adobe.flashplayer&hl=en
    Browser: I recommend Boat browser.

    For me this apk works perfect, I could install it at the first try under Android 4.0.3.
    Please send me a private message and I will send to you a new apk by email.
    The latest I could save is Flash Player 11 1 115 17.apk

    You have to go into Settings to allow non-Market apps install.
    Settings >> Applications >> Unknown sources. After you install, you can go back and disallow again until needed.
