    Nothing happens when I try to watch videos from websites. The video screen usually just remains black. I don't have any problem w/ YouTube, my videos, or videos sent via texting. I only have the stock video player. I am taking online classes & it is essential that I have access to videos away from my laptop. Any help would be so very much appreciated.
    I am sorry if this has been addressed somewhere, but I have searched and haven't had any luck.
    I have a Droid RAZR Maxx.

    You need adobe flash to watch videos on the internet but starting with android 4.0(ice cream sandwich) android no longer natively supports flash because the internet is making the switch to html5.
    You can still download the flashplayer app but it isn't going to work on all websites.

    You'll want to download a different browser.. dolphin might work, as long as you're still on ics.

    I use puffin browser for flash videos and so far it hasn't failed but I also have flash installed. I believe it is specifically designed to be able to watch flash video.

    So, I'm still a little (a lot) confused. I will install a new browser not sure which (opinions?!!), but do I still need to then install a flash player? I'm clueless as to what to choose...HD Video Player, Smart SWF, SWF Flash File Viewer. I do have MX Player installed...should I uninstall that when I figure out which of the other ones to install. Is there a flash player option I'm missing? Oh God do I ever need advice!! Ugh.

    Try puffin browser... I don't think you need to install Adobe flash with that browser. If you do need flash player, Adobe flash player 11 is what works but is no longer supported.
