    Default Flash plugin?

    Hi all,
    I have a question regarding shockwave videos in Safari. I have searched and couldn't find anything...
    My question is:
    some Websites have flash videos on that my iPhone can't play. They say install the latest flash player and offer OSX player for PPC or Intel. Should I try to install one of these?
    Many thanks, Mark.

    No, those won't work. The iPhone can't play flash videos at all, that's just one of it's limitations. They say that Apple might one day release a software update that allows this feature, but don't get your hopes up for using it any time soon. Sorry...

    Default Flash

    Thanks for the reply.
    But there must be some way of doing it, after all the youtube video's are all flash, and the youtube app works great on my iPhone...
    cheers, Mark

    No, the videos which are on the YouTube app are converted for the iPhone

    Yeah. FerdinandC is correct. The Youtube videos are converted to h254 or something like that, and utilize the special app in the iPhone to play.
    Sorry mate.
