Search This thread
Hi, playing the video on the first page works fine, but on youtube is not playing - tried a whole bunch.

Dolphin 11.5.0 with jetpack enabled and flash player set to always on. Its only getting to youtube if Dolphin is set to desktop as user agent. Hacked flash player installed.

Can you help?

I admit I haven't read all 93 pages so I apologize if this is a duplicate (I anticipate long threads like this will include significant updates up top). The top post leads to this message from Google:

I would imagine Adobe got wind of that hacked version of their Flash file and requested a take down of the file/account. But, the Puffin browser is a GREAT solution for Flash. I think the Pro version costs a couple bucks, but it's well worth it.

    Got the new Nexus 5 and found that flash video playing is totally incompatible with the Android 4.4 Kitkat, no t in Dolphin, not in Firefox and other browsers. This is too bad and I can't imagine it just happened.:mad::mad::mad:

    I digged into the code since then and found that some critical APIs have been removed from Android 4.4 that flash uses. DAMN IT!

    open failed: cannot locate symbol"_ZN7android10Vectorlmpl19reservedVectorlmpl6Ev" referenced by "libflashplayer.so:..

    After several days of coding, I finally found a way out with a hacked flash player. Being so excited and i can't wait wo share it. Here is the guide about how to install the hacked one and how to play flash content in the sites in Dolphin Browser.

    1) Download Dolphin Browser

    Surprised, Dolphin just push a 10.2.0 update version to me and I found Dolphin Jetpack was built-in. This means you don't have to install 2 separate APK now. Cheers!!

    Here is the Download Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.mgeek.TunnyBrowser

    Warning: [/B]You must have Dolphin Jetpack on in the settings to enjoy it. As far as I have noticed, Dolphin Jetpack better solves the compatibility with flash player, such as crash issue & freeze issue in full screen.

    2) Download the hacked flash player HERE

    Warning: Make sure that you have uninstall the flash player installed in your device and then install the hacked one for compatibility reason.

    If your devices refused to install apk outside Google Play, you may set in your device (Settings> Securities> Unknown resources) to allow installation of apps from unknown sources.

    3) Make sure that the flash setting in Dolphin Browser (Click Menu>Settings>Web Content>Flash Player) is on.

    Flash Player is not officially supported and therefore the speed of loading of flash video may be slow. However, I have tried many sites such as YouTube and Hulu. They all work properly with satisfactory results.:cool:

    Great thanks to @techfanatic9 for recording the video about How to Install Flash Player on Any Android KitKat Phone!

    Here is the Video.

    FYI, the download link for the hacked flash player is broken, and I can't find another link to go with right now. Please put it sun some where Google can't take it down.

    Can someone PM me the flash apk?

    Looks like Google have removed the file

    Thanks
