Android 4.X is not compatible with Flash. What options do I have to watch Flash videos?

Should HTG create an Android group like it has for the different versions of Windows or Mac questions?

Install the BOAT browser (from the Playstore) and there go to Settings > Page Content Settings > Enable Flash/Plug Ins. Then you can watch flash content with the Boat browser.

If you were unable to download the flash player, go to the archive. Scroll down to "Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives" and click the highest version number which is "Flash Player 11.1.for Android 4.0 (".

Hi DaleFoxSP ,

Welcome to HTG ,

You could try a different browser just remember to read up a bit on them first.
One I've been playing with recently is Photon Browser which has a lightning bolt icon to enable the built in flash player within the browser, However lately it has been malfunctioning I think due to a possible update to other browsers I have, but have a look at the Play store.
