E71 Flash Player Download

Please can someone advise me on how to download a mobile phone version of Flashplayer to my mobile that will then let me watch things like Channel 5 on Demand.

 

I am trying to watch things like CSI on my phone and wanted to know if this was the best way to go about it (for free) and if there is a cost for downloading the correct flash player to view programs like this etc and which version of flash player I should download anyway?

 

Another question while I am on - why do so many people appear to go for Firmware updates & upgrades when there appear to be many posts that report nothing but trouble when this is carried out. As a consequence I have not "updated-upgraded" any of the original software from purchase (Nov '08) and al works fine, no screen freezing etc. What is the benefit of a firmware update-upgrade?

 

Many thanks for any helpful replies.......:smileyvery-happy:

Re: E71 Flash Player Download

The E71 already comes with a built-in Flash Lite player. Flash Lite v3.0 according to:

http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/E71

There may be newer developer versions available from Adobe, but they do not come with a browser plugin, and cannot be used as the default .swf file player.


In my experience (I've used Nokia GSM phones since 1994 and the 2110), firmware updates generally fix bugs and in some cases even add new functionality and in my experience updates generally improve the situation rather than cause trouble.

One of the reasons that may have kept my phones out of trouble has probably been:

- I format the memory card (or secondary mass memory) before updating the firmware

- I do a *#7370# manually and immediately after a firmware update (just in case)

- I do not restore backups after a firmware update (I use other means to save contacts, calendar, and manage my photos, music and application installation files separately).


In any case, if your phone works for you, don't upgrade (if it ain't broken, don't fix it).

Re: E71 Flash Player Download

The process I have followed is just to search through Google on my phone and to see if I can then view Demand 5. The reply I get and shows on the phone screen is that I do not have Flash player installed which creates a bit of a mistery as you say that it should have a light version already available - what should I try next?

 

I have not touched any of the existing factory set programs, hence the question.

 

I am not a heavy user so an upgrade or update is not required and I totally agree "if it's not broken don't try to fix it.

Note that Flash Lite is a subset of "full" Flash on PCs, so many web sites do not work because Flash Lite isn't fully compatible.

Duh!, Last reply to this topic was OVER TWO YEARS AGO.

 

Please check before you reply in future.

 

Oh, And your reply is slightly bordering on scare mongering.

Re: E71 Flash Player Download

The E72 was introduced in 2006, so 6 years ago. It hasn't been made or sold for at least 2-3 years now, as far as I know. So, it is also not going to get any more updates.

 

I don't recall that it had any kind of Flash Lite support (less "full" Flash), so if you wish to get a phone with the best Flash support for web sites, then the model with most complete support is the Nokia N9.

 

Other Nokia models have just various versions of Flash Lite (which is not fully compatible with full Flash on PCs), or no Flash at all all (as in the case with the Windows Phone models, Lumia 610, Lumia 700, Lumia 800 and Lumia 900).
