Flash on Galaxy Tab
Has anyone noticed that flash videos on the tab play mostly in mobile format? In my HTC Evo I can play videos on websites but in the tab I cannot. When using Dolphin HD browser if you look at sites in desktop mode, flash content doesn't work. I get the same result in stock browser ifwhen I change the about:config setting to change the browser from android mode to desktop mode.
I've run into a couple of sites where flash content doesn't open at all in the tab but it opens properly on my HTC Evo. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that the tab doesn't have the latest version of flash like the Evo. The flash site doesn't list the 10.1 tab so don't know if we can install the lastest version.
Intalling the lastest version of Flash (10.3) from the market fixed my issues. :-)

No, I haven't seen anything like this on my Tab. Flash works very well. I did, however, change the UA String of the stock browser to "Desktop", so maybe that's helping.
If you want to do that> In the browser type about.debug and hit enter> settings> Debug> UA String.

I guess what a lot of people don't realize, is that Flash isn't preinstalled on the device (like most Flash-capable devices). You have to install from the market first in order for it to work

Well that's what I was confused about. All they boast about is Flash, Flash, Flash, yet it doesn't come pre-installed?
Took me a little bit but then realized that something wasn't right so I grabbed Flash 10.3 from the Market and then all was good.
