    You need froyo and flash plug in installed to watch flash on the web.
    It works very well and the videos look far better than most phones ive seen.
    i use the phone to demo videos to clients the picture quality is first class.
    I use mp4 at 720p.
    My web videos also look good streamed to the phone using flash.
    pity the gps isnt so good. Really ruins a great phone.

    who is angry?

    Actually on reflection someone telling me to be civilised for no good reason does make me a little angry.

    On 2.1 it does actually have flashlite however compatibity is limited, on 2.2 you have flash 10.1 and everything I've tried plays.

    As for divx, surely that would stream unless the file is too big in which case it would download before playing but in either case the default video player would kick in and that does support divx.

    Flash the 2.2 firmware yourself?, also iPhone obviously doesnt support flash so good luck with that argument. :D

    People generally don't stream divx, few site use it, its normally a download watch later medium and the phone can play that out of the box. So the iphone comparison is stupid as it doesn't do it out of the box at all. As for 2.2 if you believe the latest info its sounding like they have finished it and around 11th November is the supposed date for US and UK release with other countries following shortly after that. Kinda sounds like Samsung are aware of the anger of their customers.

    For those who've gone froyo and can use flash, how do flash games go? Do they? Or does the game control need to be built for touch in some way? Don't know much about them myself, except there are a few decent flash games around these days.

    Ah well, I'm sure it's been talked to death elsewhere in these forums, but just to answer my own question, it does seem adaptation is needed, and some have gone ahead with a mobile site with some mobile games, like Kongregate.

    Looking forward to Froyo for a few reasons.

    Yes, you need to JAILBREAK your iPhone to use flash. iPhone out of the box does NOT allow you to use flash. Big difference. Android 2.2 comes with flash, and if you cannot wait to get the firmware update from your carrier, you do have the option to Root your phone. Though rooting voids your warranty, but if you have jailbroken your old iphone, then you would have known that. :)

    I don't think the post by snapper.fishes was directed to you ;)

    I've never seen streamed DivX from a website. Anyway the Galaxy S, even with 2.1 can play DivX files just fine. In fact it's DivX certified. Which is more than can be said for the iPhone.

    You seem confused mr.glaxyS

    Why should it being divx certified mean it can play them from the website?

    Divx.com only has downloads for Windows and Mac, NO mobile devices and NO Linux. I'm still at a loss about this alleged DivX streaming though. :thinking:
    Certainly never come across any sites which streams DivX. Sites usually stream video using Flash(which works on Android devices with Froyo) or Silverlight sometimes don't they?

    The Galaxy S does indeed play any DivX videos which are stored it's own memory or SD-card, so yes it is certified for that.

    NO or NOT YET. There are currently no websites which stream DivX videos that I know of. Why would a website want to use DivX for streamed content anyway? When Flash, HTML5 or even Silverlight does the job just fine.

    HTH.
