On .6.2 using Dolphin HD with user agent as desktop. I'm overclocked to 1000 MHz

The flash streams go for about 30 seconds (choppily) and then stop.

Can anyone else get them to work?

Is it just me, or is ESPN attempting to block mobile users. (Which is [not smart], imo.)

An aside: Do any flash videos work well on a souped up droid? Or all they all choppy?

Thanks!

I use the NFL app and the video is very good...
I've had mixed experience with viewing flash videos from different sites.

Are you trying to view paid or free content?

Free. Is the nfl app you use free? I already pay $85 a month for phone/internet.... dont really want to pay any more.

Yes, it's free. I downloaded it while it was free for this season.
Wish I only paid $85 for phone/internet.

Well its free on my desktop (after I pay a internet connection fee). If I bought a verizon 3g modem and plugged it into my desktop, I bet I could watch NFL.com videos for "free." I just wish I had unhampered internet access with my Droid and 3g verizon plan.

Oh well.

Bump.

Anyone else have this problem? I still get the message, "we're sorry but the video you requested is no longer available." I certainly can watch the vids on my desktop.

Two questions:

1. Can anyone gurus figure out which end is blocking nfl.com/videos. Is it verizon? is it nfl.com?

2. And what method do they use to do it? Similar to hulu?

3. Any work around for this? Seems like there should be, IMO.
