    Okay, so the tips worked for embedded video for Dolphin and the stock browser (Firefox didn't work). What still doesn't work are video's from websites like CBS.com. It always hangs on the advertisement. I *think* that I tried it once and it worked with ICS one day when there wasn't an ad. Are most of the websites that aren't working, those that have ads? Just curious.

    EDIT: Never mind. On ESPN video, the ads work but the video doesn't :(
    And I reinstalled Firefox Beta, still can't see ESPN or CBS videos

    I'm really surprised there has been no official verification from Verizon that this is a known issue by now.

    So, I posted a little hastily.. apparently flash still does not work on my phone. I was using vimeo and espn as my test sites. I think they were forwarding me to another format. My phone is only a week old, so I can either return it and activate my old Droid 2 or stick it out and hope for some better updates. What would you guys do?

    I replaced mine with a rezound. It doesn't have ics yet, but is certified to work with ics. Flash is more important to me than ics.

    Sooo..i called Motorola..and they said its a very known issue.the way iam takin it,they dont have a certain date when itll be fixed.basically its adobe's fault not wanting to saport android.the agent i was talkin too has the same problem.i guess we have to wait until further notice(if flash will even change it)they claim they will keep us posted.until then,it sucks for 80/90% of us

    While I'm not surprised that Motorola is passing the buck to Adobe, I don't completely buy the answer that was given. It's true that Adobe is dropping support for Flash on Android, but that lack of support is beyond 4.0.X (which implies that it would be supported within the range of 4.0.0 to 4.0.9). Flash works great on my S3 (in fact, it's the smoothest I've ever seen Flash run on Android), and the S3 is running 4.0.4 just like the RAZR/MAXX. I'm no engineer, but considering Flash works just fine on other phones running the same OS version, it seems to me that the issue would be more on Motorola's end of things.

    It would make sense that its a moto issue. I believe they probably chose to stop supporting it.
