Flash on Playbook not working

This is very disappointing!!!

 

I love RIM but it keeps breaking my heart....

I have the latest OS update 1.0.7IMG_00000035.jpg

 

Why? Even simple flash doesn't work like this website's image upload for example. See below?

I can forgive RIM if it happened when I was alone... But it did fail while I was showing off. Arrgghh!!!

 

Anyone got an idea?

Re: Flash on Playbook not working

all websites using flash for streaming. any video on youtube does not work. even simple flash does not work like the 3rd image i attached. looks like OS reload is the last resort.

Re: Flash on Playbook not working

have you tried a deep power off ?
press the power button for 10 whole seconds.

Re: Flash on Playbook not working

i got it resolved. some error might have occured which caused Flash to not work. On the browser, I went to Options>Content and disabled flash. Then I reloaded the page (of course youtube still display the 'flash required' message). Then went back to Options>Content again and enabled flash. reloaded the page and... Bang! it is now working.

 

Still weird as flash has always been "enabled." I never disabled it...

 

But then great it is now working.

Re: Flash on Playbook not working

I noticed you are running an outdated OS so why not try and update to the latest OS: 1.0.8.6067?
