Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

There's not alot you can do in these cases. The sites in question are not designed with mobile devices in mind and require the latest and greatest flash player to work. This even locks out users of some desktop operating systems.

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

That won't have any effect on flash data in web pages. Quoting from the page you linked to: "The solution delivers a standalone player for applications, without affecting the Flash Lite browser plug-in or pre-installed standalone player, if present."

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

Hi gangskapunk, the app you refer to is Flash Lite 3.1, but it's for S60 v 3.0, not 5.0 as needed for N97.  I too installed it, but when trying to view videos on bbc.co.uk, it failed with a few JavaScript messages.  I installed the latest JavaScript Runtime (2.0.2) from betalabs.nokia.com, which took care of the JavaScript error messages but the videos are still not viewable.

 

Does anyone at Nokia know when Adobe will be releasing a version of Flash Lite for S60v5?

 

Cheers!

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

My partner had an update pushed to their 5800 about a week or two back from Nokia that contained an updated Flash Lite Player.  With any luck, if the N97 didn't already come with this pre-installed it might be made available to that device too.

edmundgall : The update on betalab is for Java, not Javascript. Java has nothing to do with Javascript, it's 2 things totally different

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

Hi Guys,

 

Your best bet is to download Skyfire web browser as it is Fully Flash compatible and will play virtually any video, Including Flash streams and Windows Media Streams without any trouble

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

It is good news for Android phones today.  The Froyo version 2.2 support full flash 10.1 in the browser.  Now that one manufacturer does this it will prove popular and hopefully increase the speed at which the others follow suit. 

 

I know we can all view flash via Skyfire but I would prefer full Flash PLayer 10.1 support for Symbian OS phones in the default browser.  If Google can do it then Nokia should be able to!  Who has been in the phone market longest!  Come on Nok.

Hey, what does that Kudos button do?

Re: NOKIA N97 FLASH PLAYER UPDATE

I'm afraid it looks like Nokia are leaving the mobile phone industry wether they want to or not. The N97 is now an embarrassement compared to what else is out there and nothing much seems to be in the pipeline, either in terms of new devices/OS's or software updates for the 97. This company has lost the desirability factor and is doing little to satisfy previously loyal customers - just look at the problems everyone has updating maps, the awful OVI and gigantic Nokia software suite.
