    Flash player will never happen as Adobe have abandoned it for all devices except windows PCs and MACs.

    They don't develop it anymore for any other devices. This is why the flash player on the ps3 is way out of date and doesn't work anymore for a lot of newer websites.

    The reason the videos don't work on xbox is because the website developers(apart from that adult site mentioned earlier) are detecting you are using  internet explorer 9 and giving the desktop version of the website which requires flash. They are not checking for the xbox version of internet explorer. If they were they could give an HTML5 version of the site that is used on tablets.

    And as for silverlight. It's not needed. There are not many sites that use silverlight. The ones that do like Netflix or Lovefilm already have apps for their services on xbox.

    i notice websites with lots of flash, and javascript capabilities are harder for xbox OS to process. webpages don't load properly, or glitching. since adobe won't support other OSs, is there any other way to fix or improve this inconvenience?

    The only way is to persuade website owners to start supporting the xbox version of Internet Explorer.

    At the moment most Websites detect Internet Explorer then tries to give you the desktop version of the website that requires flash.

    It is quite possible to display videos in Internet Explorer using HTML5 but that requires websites to support it.

    Just asking but who makes Adobe Flash?

    Adobe does, duh.  Used to be Macromedia.  My understanding is they're stopping support because of Windows 8 metro/start menue, tablets, etc.  And if tech conttinues to move in that direction, sorry but they're only sc***ing themselves.

    My question was for TinierUrchin74 but none the less the obvious has been pointed out. I was being facetious.

    So the question begs, why do people cry here when they should be crying on the Adobe Site?

    It actually doesn't even matter if they went to Adobe about it because they clearly have no intention of supporting what will inevitably be the future, simply because it doesn't do any wonders in their eyes, so it's their loss and will only hurt themselves in the long run.  Besides, the main reason everybody wants Flash is for a better browsing experiences, and I've kept trying to tell everyone from expreriences on every single console/device I own supporting them are always going to be broken experiences due to moddified specifications, and thus full support for all the mainstream plug-ins that PC browsers use can't be supported.  The only other way around it is for the devs is to go out of their way to research all the specs, and in the case of consoles is quite clearly means they have to keep up with every and any changes and putting what they might see as more unnecessary work on their end because modified OS', browsers, etc, aren't really as open ended as PCs to receive full support.

    Ha ha.  Although, Adobe have ended support for Flash on Android now too.  You can still get it though, albeit unofficially, and side load it on to your device.  My Samsung Galaxy S3 has Flash installed via this method.

    As for iOS, it doesn't need Flash now.  I've been impressed over the past year or so how many websites can detect an iOS based browser and load a video friendly Flashless web page.


    Got a question? Just ask.

    You sure about that?  My sister has an iPad, I forget which gen, butlast time I was on FaceBook with, which wasn't recent, it to see if it'll run their apps it didn't work.

    I was able to view YouTube vids on their website right after I installed the IE app, mainly because I had the YouTube already installed. Not having flash installed is a pain in the @$$, mainly because I can't see vids some people tweet. Not being able to livestream YouTube Hangouts is another problem I have.

    If Adobe decides not to build a flash plug-in for the 360, I'll drop trou and they can kiss my bare @$$. I just hope someone can come up with a solution to this damned problem.
