    for the past week Ive been having trouble streaming video from any website that dosent use you tube

    it seems to have started when I got rid of google chrome due to the fact the tabs kept flashing at me.

    I switched to firefox for its flash ability and installed the flash apk

    since that time 9/10 times when I try and play a video that in chrome would open up mx player I either get stuck on the loading sign or get an error video cannot be played

    This is all on various sites that I have never had a problem with before

    so heres what I tried

    using another 3rd party video app was using mx player tried mobo,flv any player I could find recommendations for -same result

    using different browsers used puffin, dolphin amongst others same result

    going back to google chrome still same result
    uninstalling flash reinstalling flash
    going back to original configuration
    using the stock video player and browser

    Ive even tried playing the same stuff on my wifes s3 with no problem

    Does anyone have any idea of a fix? Any help would be appreciated

    I just switched from a Razr Max which played flash just fine, so when I got this phone I was somewhat miffed that I cldnt get flash to play on this phone! However a few days ago I downloaded a flash browser called Flash Fox, its a spin off of Fire Fox, but tweeked to stream flash better, and so far it has been working great! Hope this helps!

    Not sure what sites your trying to view/stream from, but 3gp is typically a video file extension that cell phones use when they record videos, thats not a flash flv extension
