    Default Can't View Videos requiring Flash after ICS Upgrade

    Since I upgraded to ICS, I can't view videos on websites that use Flash. I have the latest version of Flash on my tablet and most of the sites (ex. QVC) that have videos only require Flash 9. When I click on the video, instead of playing I get a blue question mark or what looks like a little blue lego. Before upgrading to ICS I didn't have this problem. Other vidoes (ex. YouTube) I have no problems with. Anyone else having this issue and if you do, do you know how to fix it? Thanks

    If you're browsing with Chrome, that's the problem I believe. IIRC Chrome doesn't support Flash.

    ICS and flash is installed, no problem just go into the browser settings and select Advanced/ Enable Flash and plug-ins ....set it to always on
    And you will have Flash

    Sounds like it may be disabled in your browser settings.

    To those who commented saying it is not supported, that is not true. Flash Player 11 is supported up to and including Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.x). But once you bump up to Jelly Bean (4.1.x+) is when Flash is bounced.

    You may download Flash player from Adobe at this address :

    At the bottom of the page you will find links for differents versions of Flash Player for Android 4.0.X.

    I had the same problem with my wife's Galaxy tab 10 after upgrade to ICS and it works fine now.

    As noted above, if your browsing with Chrome, Chrome doesn't support Flash.
