    I'm sure more knowledgeable people will correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know Flash doesn't work in Kit Kat. I use Puffin browser which uses magic to make Flash work.

    Yes it works as outlined in ccpopham's link. Just don't expect desktop like performance from Flash sites; there's a reason why it was abandoned on mobile devices after all. Good example is you wont get full flash support on ESPN's site.

    Guys.. love the 12.2, but I cannot get flash sites to work with any kitkat modified apks or dolphin. I had no trouble restoring Flash on my kitkat phone, but these tips for kitkat on the Note 12. 2 just aren't working. I have no idea why websites still use Flash but they do.

    A difinite bummer on the 12.2 and IMO seems like a weird step down for such a high end device. Yes, very few like flash, BUT, it's being used in too many applications for us to abandon it just yet. Frankly I don't care for Flash on website, because it's not iOS and mobile friendly. However, YouTube is running flash and it's owned by Google who is the same company that has stopped Flash on Kitkat.

    What makes this Flash issue very weird, is that YouTube videos and Flash related streaming images work fine in certain instances. For example I have been able to play YouTube when embeded in websites or blogs. I can also run Google Maps Street View in the native browser but not in other browsers, as it asks for Flash.

    I think the Flash issue and lack of system-wide spell checker (browser, text, email) is a major hassle on this device. Having said that, pls excuse any typos, as I am using the Zagg keyboard without any word suggestion.

    In those cases arent the videos in HTML5 and not Flash. AFAIK default android youtube application uses HTML5 and has done so for quite some time.

    Thanks. So if that's the case why can't I play youtube videos at YouTube.com I get a flash warning? And why can't run Street View on other browsers I also get a flash warning.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear . . YES if you're trying to use those services via browsers you get limited support due to needing Flash. Use the native applications instead which will serve up the data in HTML5 without any performance issues.

    Yes, with all kinds of contortions, you can get a flash player working, but it is stunning to me that a tablet computer this expensive from a company as alegedly prestigious as Samsung cannot resolve this. Add to the mix that you can't watch Amazon videos without Flash on Android tablet and it just blows my mind.

    I know, I also find it astonishing, that a company like Google, that owns YouTube that runs Flash videos, decides not to support flash on their mobile devices. This one is for history books!!!!

    Hopefully ancient history soon. I wish ESPN would move away from flash sooner. Flash support was abandoned for good reason, it's not Google's product and it sucks. The fact that people struggle to get it going should be a testament to why support for it has been killed, not the other way around. It never worked well on mobile platforms because too much room for error was left for content developers to craft things that wouldn't work on phones and tablets. Flash video would also drain battery like crazy when compared to HTML5. Don't get me wrong, flash is on my tablet as is a secondary browser but I only use said software when I must; for everything else I use Chrome and other applications that don't rely on flash.

    I know it's hard to come to grips with given the fact that OEMs seem to modify android heavily with their skinned versions but they don't have as much influence on how well another 3rd party application works on their device as one may think, let alone one that has been out of production for quite some time. Please read the mobile section of the Adobe flash road map ( http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashpla...s/roadmap.html ) before continuing to bash samsung and Google about lack of support. Adobe dropping support in advance of kit kat has a lot to do with the state of things today.

    It canbe found at Dolphin.com/lab/en...

    UPDATE: flash or at least Amazon video on demand) quit working on my Note on April 23rd apparently never to return. Prior to then, it did work using Dolphin, Jetpack and the version 11 Flash app. Very disappointing.

    I just installed this over the weekend and it works. The picture quality isn't in HD like it was on my iPad with the Amazon app or on my laptop, but I haven't found another viable workaround. Despite Amazon On Demand/Prime video not being as good in some respects as Netflix/iTunes when it comes to content, there are times when it is the ONLY source available for content. Flash support in the Dolphin browser seems like a temporary solution and I'd welcome anything in its place. I'd prefer to use an app personally.

    I just tried Flashfox, it immediately played a variety of flash videos. Worked with my school sites. So I upgraded to the pro version.

    Just downloaded Flashfox, it works well enough for me to purchase the pro version. I'm using the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2.

    Hey Bill-E, could you tell me what is the browser/flash application configuration that allows you to play Amazon Instant Videos? I had no problems with Dolphin/Dolphin Jetpack/Flash until About April 23rd. After that, I just get the "loading" dots message when I try to play tv shows in my library.

    I'm using Firefox Beta from the Play Store and Flash version 11.1.115.81. I'm pretty sure that this is NOT the Kitkat patched one. IIRC the KitKat patched one from xda-developers didnt work.
