    I have a nexus 7 1st gen. Just updated android to 4.4 kitkat and videos no longer play. Tried youtube and facebook.
    Of course youtube videos work. Which browser do you use?

    Well honestly speaking i believe there has been some changes in Android 4.4 that makes Flash not work. Some libraries it needs were removed. Also Adobe has not supported Android with Flash for a good while now since Flash 11.1 and Android 4.0.

    For all users missing Flash, did you try this app:

    Certainly not a perfect solution, but might be worth a shot.

    Yes, yes - I 'get' that there are those of us out there who insist that Flash is a terrible idea and that everyone who owns any website worth viewing should be writing in HTML 5 instead, but as that's been the case for years now (and was certainly the excuse used by Apple for their lack of support in iOS) and still there is still no wide acceptance as HTML 5 as the de facto viewing language, folks need to get over it and keep banging on about what 'should' be the case.

    And any OS and browser should just accept that and offer the user the most means of viewing websites as they are now being produced. Get over yourselves, people.

    You might find your web browsing surprisingly gimpled altered and limited should you decide to boycott Flash-employing websites.
    I haven't missed flash since 2007 with my iPhone. I no longer install flash on my Windows computers either. I do not miss it. My devices run so much better without that resource hogging securiry nightmare installed.

    Try it sometime. You will be surprised how little you actually need it.

    So you're saying there should be an app which supports all the stupid, backward people who maintain the provincial notion the entire web should be open to their mobile device? I can live with that.

    See this thread:

    It has a working fix for Flash using Dolphin Browser. I've tried it on my 2013 N7 w/ 4.4 and it works!

    Pretty much.
    Or until such time as a format that is still not widely or universally used or accepted actually gains a lot more traction. Sure HTML5 might be lovely and make lots of sense (much like, oh, say, insisting everyone should be running full Linux computers rather than what's out there now) but if SFA wish to use it, its not much better than proof of concept.

    If you want to push the issue - calling Flash archaic, stupid, backward and a security issue - get your ISP to block all sites using it. Then we'll see how many website developers (or viewers) make the move. Or cause an outcry.

    On the desktop side, I am using Linux without flash installed just fine. Google Chrome have flash player and mp4 codec integrated if needed, but I don't even have it installed. Firefox have addons that force YouTube to play videos in HTML5 contents. Or I can set the user agent to mobile temporarily.
