    Is this normal? If I click on YouTube videos through browsing it won't play and says its not supported on mobile but I can open up the YouTube app and see the same video just fine. Any help is appreciated.

    I don't actually have a smart phone (but I've been doing a lot of research, while I eagerly await my upgrade date), but from what I've read, I believe you can download the Flash app in the Android marketplace, and download one of the other browsers out there that support Flash (I think Dolphin HD does, Opera Mobile might, etc.), and it should work.

    That is correct. Dolphin is an awesome browser for you rphone as well. I still like FF better(Only because of the syncing with my FF that I already use on my desktop), but if youre lookin through youtube, you might as well just use the app. Its formatted better.

    If there is a option for it in your browser settings, try changing the user agent to desktop.

    Hulu will not work! They have blocked every device that is not a computer from streaming video.
