    hi,

    I purchased a samsung galaxy tab 10.1 for my father in laws xmas and his key requirement was to watch his local football teams web videos. Unfortunately i cant seethem on my tablet. I can see the non hd ones but not the more recent hd ones, and i also cannot see them on my daubhters lenovo android 3.1 tab either.

    The url is

    http://www.stenhousemuirfc.com/video/match-278/stirling-albion/

    Basically i see the first image and then it all goes blank. I have the most recent version of flash and other videos work fine.

    I think it may bean android problem given thatit doesnt work on two devices.

    Any help or support would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I tried your link and had the same result. Played on my laptop, but not the HTC EVO.

    Not sure I would classify it as an Android problem though. Do you have an iPhone or a BlackBerry to try it on? Oh, that's right they don't play Flash. Could just be their encoding is looking for a particular version of Flash not available with mobile versions.

    I guess it could be an Android problem in the sense it doesn't have the required codecs or something. I would lean more to it being a mobile device problem or that the site hasn't set the HD versions up to be compatible with mobile devices. Maybe it is the HD encoding.

    Wish I could offer more.....

    Another possibility is the speed of our connections may not be fast enough. I do not have 4G service here. Do you?

    You should drop a note to the webmaster there and see if they can provide some insight.....
