    I have ICS and have no issues playing vids.

    It's probably the sites you are going to that need to be updated.
    With html5 and embedded x264, flash is basically obsolete.

    HS isn't on html5 yet. We're still using old school tech here. vb is workin on vb5 as we speak. vb4 sucks and we're not going to it but vb5 is looking pretty good. So maybe in a few months there will be a release we can migrate to and have better mobile support. I don't have time like i used to to dedicate to testing things like this out any more with the job and the girl these days...

    i was under the impression that HTML5 wasn't built for the demands of multimedia and wasn't very "portable" from browser to browser....but i read about this a long time ago, maybe it has changed

    It was probably an article talking about ie. Ie, like usual, sucks and doesn't support most of it.
