If you have downloaded the froyo OS then now you need to get the Adobe Flash for the browser. Enjoy. And don't say I never gave you anything.

Let me know how it works for you, because I'm loving it.

P3, great work on getting us Froyo. I am trying to use the flash and it's not working on the ABC site. Just says "loading". I think it might have to do with no wi-fi yet. Interested to see what happens when we get wi-fi.

I used Firefox, this worked as well. Internet Exploder resulted in a corrupt download.

Tried Gametrailers.com and it was stuttering constantly and eventually crashed my phone. Granted, their "SD" feeds of video are really high quality. A little warning actually popped up in browser saying something to the effect of "Safety not guaranteed". Still I cant wait till my mate comes over tonight and I can rub this in his face. Lova ya P3!

A lot of those site (Hulu especially) wont run on mobile. Its designed to run on a Desktop for safety reasons. I am not sure about the others. Let me see if I can find the work around for you.

engadget: As Absolutely Android explains, all you have to do is make Hulu think you're using a desktop browser, which can be done simply by entering "about: debug" in the address bar and switching the UAString setting from Android to desktop. The only downside to the trick is that you'll now also get the full desktop version of the Hulu site (and any other site, until you switch it back)

understood. by the way, i did run"about:debug" in the browser, accessing settings that allows the UI String for "desktop" vs "android"
i went to "www.ecodazoo" which was demo'ed on the nexus one. Im getting same notice to install flash.

On the N1 about:config and changing to desktop works pretty well. That being said it is not a guarantee and some of the times it will cut you off the site.
