I can't get Adobe Flash Player to show up in the Market, no sort of search shows it up, I even managed to find an apk which also refused to install.

Am I missing something here?...

It's still, and very much so, that the Blade does NOT SUPPORT FLASH 10.1. Wrong CPU

There's nothing that can be done about it. This has been asked very many times in the forum, and the answer is the same.

You can install it from elsewhere, but as stated the processor is not supported by flash.

I know because there are 1000s of threads, hence my point that the OP searched the market, but not the forums....

The youtube app plays fine, as does tvcatchup, etc. so the blade's processor should be more than capable of handling flash. Adobe should get off their a***s and compile it for us!

The youtube app obviously doesn't serve you flash videos. Because FLASH is not working on ARM v6.

I think that those videos served by the youtube app are re-encoded for mobile use. With gingerbread we will be able to see VP8 videos from youtube directly because gingerbread will support WebM and google is re-encoding all its content to webM anyway.

Yep, it's how TVC works, it just sends you an RTSP stream. Nothing to do with flash.

Actually, I searched the forums for "flash player zte blade" which returned only 3 results which were about custom roms, they had over 30 pages each and would have taken forever to find the relevant posts. That's if there were any because I have a feeling that the results would have been about flashing the zte with a rom rather than Adobe Flash.

Anyway, thanks for clearing it up, I had suspicions that it was a hardware issue. I'd already asked in another popular forum and no one knew about this.

Really there's nothing in it for them to do so (plus they're probably bribed not too!!)

What really needs to happen is websites using flash especially for video need to get off their rears and upgrade to html5.

No offence, but that would be very bad to search for.

You should have searched the ZTE Blade forums for "Flash" - this would be much better :P

No offence, but you suggestion is even worst.

Have you tried what you've said? Flash query returns everything, including flashing roms.

So I dont see the point of your search.

Many ppl forget about flash lite and that it IS compatible with armv6

Actually, it does :P
The Youtube player sends Flash Video (FLV) stream, what can be played - but that's got nothing to do with Adobe's Flash 10.1! So, flash video =/= Flash content!

Actually the "Proper" way to search is press the search button
then click the words underneath it that say "More Search Options"
Then put whatever words your searching for and click the button that says "Search Titles Only"

Putting the word Flash in and doing this search brings THIS up http://android.modac.....ghlite=+Flash

Which is only 2 pages of results and MOST of the top results are posts saying how flash cannot be used and why

This is an OLD and outdated CPU mate, why would they even bother? Dual cores are coming.

This CPU can play flash, with the 2.1 eclair roms with Flashlite installed it played 99.9% of flash data in the browser...no probs...including youtube

Someone who knows the Flashlite programmer should ask him to do it for 2.2 froyo...
