If you own an iPhone ,
and iPod Touch, you might have figured out by now that Flash content doesn’t work on your iDevice and it is not going to happen anytime soon based on Apple ’s CEO Steve Jobs
elaborating on the reasons why Apple has chosen not to allow Adobe Flash on their platform.
But that hasn’t stopped people from figuring out a way to run Flash content on the iDevice. We have seen quite a
over the last few years that have allowed users to run Flash content on Mobile Safari browser.
A new bookmarklet aptly called iOSFlashVideo has recently been released that allows users to watch Flash videos from sites like Vimeo, Dailymotion, Flickr Video etc and you don’t even need to
.
,
1. Open your iDevice’s Mobile Safari browser and point it to
2. Add the page as a bookmark (Tap on “+” button, then “Add Bookmark” button and then “Save” button).
3. After the bookmark has been added, you need to go back to Safari Bookmarks to edit the iOSFlashVideo bookmark. (Tap on the Bookmark icon, then tap on the “Edit” button and then tap on iOSFlashVideo bookmark).
4. You need to remove everything before javascript from the URL field of the bookmark. That’s it you are all set to use the iOSFlashVideo bookmarklet.
5. Now, if you navigate to any webpage with Flash video content (except YouTube), you will notice that the embedded Flash videos will show up as a blank whitespace.
6. To watch the Flash video, simply tap on the bookmark icon again and tap on the iOSFlashVideo bookmark. The Flash video should now load on your iDevice’s Mobile Safari.
