    I've exchanged my phone 4 times although I insisted to the specialist that it was an issue with ICS, not my phone. I had no problem watching some videos, but there were those "not made for mobile" that YouTube wouldn't play (or any flash site). I discovered that Puffin & Dolphin browser play flash just fine. Is there anyone using stock browser, non rooted with OTA ICS NOT having issues with flash?

    My stock browser plays videos very well too, but what I'm asking is if it plays FLASH videos using Adobe or any other flash player. The update only allows people to play html5 videos to my understanding. I haven't seen any Razr in person that can play flash videos with stock browser, yet, once in a while, I see someone on the web saying they can. Can you be more clear what you mean? Of course the Razr will play all videos from the youtube app, but the YouTube app doesn't have half of YouTube content that's available from the full desktop site.

    For instance, go to SouthparkStudios. Com. Tell me if your Razr plays those videos.

    Cool! So your phone never gets stuck when playing flash videos from desktop YouTube? Sorry if I seem doubtful. It's just that when I talk to reps & look online, It all says that only html5 videos will play on Razr with ICS that was received from their OTA. Is your phone rooted?

    No, my phone is not rooted. Honesty, i don't watch many videos, but the ones i do watch always seem to play fine. Actually, i watch most YouTube videos on my phone (from the app), my desktop computer seems to always stop/get stuck when i watch videos on it...never on my phone. Do you have Adobe Flash Player installed?

    When my Maxx received the ota ICS upgrade I could no longer play flash videos, until I installed the adobe flash player. Ever since installing it, my stock browser does play flash....
