How to stream flash videos on Windows Mobile
Hi everyone,

I have a problem. I have a Palm Treo Pro 850w phone, which is quite old. It runs with Windows Mobile Professional 6.1.0. The problem that I have is that I can't find any web browser that can fully support adobe flash.

I have Opera Mobile 10 which has a flash plug-in called flash lite. It works partially and is only able to play Youtube videos. I have tried other programs such Skyfire 1.5, Bolt 1.5, Mach 5, but none of which work. I read online that Adobe has actually stopped producing adobe flash programs for smart phones.

I would like to know if there any ways that I can actually stream flash files online without using adobe flash. I also read that smartphones are now moving towards using HTML5. How does this work?

Please help.

It's just not going to be powerful enough to play Flash. Flash is pretty resource-intensive. An ancient smartphone wasn't designed for multimedia applications.

Well I have never heard of that kinda smart phone but the last option is to go to some mobile mechanic and see what type of updates are possible in that phone set. May be you could install some better apps when you have extra computing power in it.
