    Default this tablet won't play movies!

    Why doesn't the nexus 7 not play streaming movies? I keep getting errors saying it doesn't support flash player. So how do I watch movies? I've read on this forum that others have but they didn't say how. Plz help . The main reason I bought it is to watch movies, I wish I was told before I purchased it ...geez.

    Android does not support flash. Or more accurately Adobe dropped support for Flash on Android a couple of years ago.

    What streaming site are you referring to? If it's a well-known and legal source, there might be an app to help you out.

    Actually, it's a well known fact in the android world that Android doesn't support flash (in fact, as well as iOS). Though Google offers it's Google Play Movies app which allows you to buy movies for watching them on mobile devices.

    I haven't had any problems streaming movies, etc., on my N7 from any service. What site are you trying to stream from?

    No problems streaming movies from Google Play Movies, Flixster, HBOGo, and Crackle, for starters.

    Maybe OP is trying to stream from Amazon Prime, which will not work.

    Op said getting errors using flash. That is not supported out of the box.

    It does work. I have sideloaded Flash and can watch Prime using Dolphin browser.

    Hulu also works with flash side loaded with 4.4 but it can be a pain to load

    I meant out of the box, which I suspect the OP expected.
