Flash player for Internet Explorer for xbox 360.

  • Level   1

I believe microsoft should consider adding flash player so that xbox live gold users can play facebook games and watch videos etc.

    This gem of a situation again....

    The solution is simple. Uninstall if it does not meet requirement.

    The situation is this from my perspective, I bought a games console a good few years ago and MS have done an admirable job of expanding the device to where it is now as an attempt to expand it's capabilities.

    A few month ago, no one could browse anything on their Xbox, now they 'optionally' can.

    It's been said before, but to repeat, Flash compatibility isn't a MS issue. Browser compatibility is a webmasters issue. Flash is old hat.

    Trust me...I know what I'm doing.

    So, if I am following this forum thread correctly then people are upset that IE for xbox does not have flash support. HTML5 is the new wave and IE for xbox supports it to an extent. But porn sites CLEARLY work just fine. lol why is porn always ahead of the curve?

    Free streaming sites thst arent legal rely on other sites to host which is mostly flash which doesnt work Well on anythimg but pcs

    You can llook at websites with video juSt use mobile sites

    The software is there from adobe thst streams to mobiles

    It is upto your webmaster to support the 99% of devices thats dont support flash like phones and tablets and Consoles

    If your sites dont all devices then You should bug the webmaster thats what It is for

    Most likely the answer is we only support pcs

    Stizz or whatever your tag is I think you should settle down. You didnt represent Xbox very well with your little rant. It was stupid. Calm down or dont be an ambassador.  People are paying for a service and have every right to complain.

    Now listen people. Ps3 internet is HORRENDOUS. I tried watching videos on the web and it was awful. I had to restart my system every five minutes. I refuse to even try to use it anymore. Sites with flash or videos in general often have viruses. Do we all forget that Ps3 was shut down for all that time? Not being able to use Ie the way you can on the PC protects your fragile XBOX 360. Im sure people would complain a lot more if their  XBOX spit the bit. If you dont like it then dont use it. That simple. Get off your lazy *** and turn on your PC. I use the Ie for XBOx once in a while. As a Tester I used it a few times and not once have I had the problems I did with my PS3.

    Now as far as paying for gold, well wah wah wah. XBOX provides more than enough value for 60$ Online play is better than ever although I dont really use it. However PS3 online for free is full of bugs. PS3 pay service gives you alot of FREE games and other things. They do a good job for their fee. I choose to stick with XBOX since I have over 130 games for it. I bought a Ps3 simply for the exclusives. I rarely turn it on. My membership fee is coming up and being broke as I am im going to find a way to pay for it. I will happily pay for it. You morons do realize that its 5$ a month dont ya? I mean seriously. I makes me wanna puke when I see people complain about it. Yes try playing Ps3 when 1 guy has 17 gamertags. Its ridiculous. Way more maturity on 360. although there is a lot of crap online its way better than the crap you see on Ps3.

    In closing, quit complaining. If you don't like it then don't use it., If you don't like paying 60$ then switch to the other systems. if IE doesn't work for you simply delete it. If you got banned from online play don't be an idiot and break the rules. 360 does a very good job protecting its users and im proud to be a member. I have no problem paying $5 a month for a service that's  going to update and give me good performance. Pay the 16 cents a day and have a good time. Watch movies, surf the net, catch up with your sports news, watch news clips, or get up to date with your favorite Tv shows. I personally get Netflix AND Hulu plus. I love it and will never get rid of it. I mean 8 bucks a month? Its silly not to. In fact im extremely close to canceling cable. If it werent for The King Of Queens Seinfeld and Married With Children or Lifetime movie Network for my wife I really would go Cableless.

    I agree. Microsoft needs to step up there game. Cuz without the newest flash player, U cant even watch the real Youtube, yeayea i know i can use the Youtube App. But its not the same as the actual Youtube website. Also without the newest flash player u cant really do anything legit. I like the Internet Explorer App a lot, but i wud like even more if they made it so you cud download the flash player and other things as well.

    Well that 'representative' doesn't know what they are talking about.  Yes PS3 has Flash but no it hasn't been updated, it hasn't been updated for a long time.  I'm not going on what I've seen on the internet, I'm telling you from personal experience, as a person who actually owns a PS3.  Flash video works to an extent, but it doesn't support HD playback, it's also slow and video playback can be laggy.

    I seriously doubt the PS4 will have Flash, Adobe are no longer supporting embedded devices.  PS Vita has been out for over a year and it still doesn't have Flash, and it never will.  Why would the PS4 be any different?


    Got a question? Just ask.

    I don't have a tone so and if I did you would know. I am simply voicing my opinion like everybody else. So your statement was pointless.

    This is what I thought also. I never heard of the ps3 getting updated for flash as far as I knew it was not updated and was no longer getting updated due to the fact that ADOBE has simply discontinued flash for mobile and all other devices.

    I think for the people who complain should look at it like this. Okay you say you pay for your services like everybody else right? Okay adobe says about flash that it does not function well on mobile and other devices as well as it does on p.c and mac right? So that being said to me that's like saying it can cause all types of problems, and as everyone else in here does or just about everyone else I to pay for things. I pay to much for my console to not have it function properly I want to see it run to perfection. So I feel like this if adding flash onto the console makes it not function well, why would you want it on there? That right there to me is just silly and makes no sense to me what so ever. This is where I am lost from the people who complain. That's all I'm saying.

    I think there is many reasons why microsoft didnt added flash player which promblems could apper while you are using flash player. On internet explorer but maybe later in future they might add anything can happen.
