Re: playbook wont play flash videos

I have never had this issue. Which flash videos are you referring to?

that being said, in the browser I suggest you go to the options and clear the cache and the local storage.

Re: playbook wont play flash videos

sledheadev, if you want help from us you need to give more information. A URL to a specific video can help.

Re: playbook wont play flash videos

Thanks for the link.  I was able to watch the whole video.  My local cache was not cleared not local storage.

Re: playbook wont play flash videos

sledheadev:
when you are in the browser, load the video and pause it.
then go to the options of the Playbook (outside of the Browser app), go to the "About" page, and chose "Hardware" in the right drop down menu.
How much "free memory" do you have?
