    I too think it is Motorola problem. Does the off the shelf new RAZR Max flash player work?

    I think it is just a transitional problem, we are just in the wrong in between stage. Once HTML 5 gets more wipe spread Flash won't be needed, which is why Adobe is stopping their support.

    All the embedded videos I have tried on Chrome work for me and I don't have Flash installed, course I don't look at very many different sites with videos. I can surely see where the frustration lies, hopefully updated browsers for Android will address the issue.

    Still ticks me off that they took a very capable device and handicapped it!

    This is one of two complete failures with ICS. The other is the inability to send/Forward emails to groups.

    Hi guys. I'm new to this forum and new to android (2 weeks).
    I too have had this problem with playing flash embedded videos on my Galaxy SIII since the last OTA update, where videos wouldn't play in either Chrome or Firefox mobile browsers. However, they do still play on my stock phone browser *and* Dolphin browser that I recently installed. Hope this is of use to some of you.

    Cheers, Al.

    My Xoom running JB plays embedded flash videos just fine. Other phones running ICS play them also. ICS on the RAZR=FAIL.

    Yeah, Flash works perfectly fine on my S3 (which is running 4.0.4 just like the RAZR/MAXX) and on my TF300. It's definitely an issue on Motorola's end of things.
