I've quickly search this forum, there's obviously a simple solution that I haven't seen I apologise up front for missing it. An app? Maybe someone can point me to it?
How's everyone accessing Flash-based streaming media on their android devices?
A quick search of the forums here did show me something I hadn't known. Android/chrome doesn't support flash, the same chrome for windows does.
I buy plant & machinery through auctions in the US/Canada
Some of these are streamed online, and I attend them while here in NZ (usually very early in the morning due to timezones).
Recently - during a grid outage – as an important auction started, I also lost my generator backup (as it turned out, due to a large pump starting up in another building).
I had to power off the computer I normally use (Chrome 34.0/w7) as the UPS can't supply both the power hungry satellite wireless modem/router and computers for any length of time.
Thinking fast I grabbed my kids Nexus 7 -Chrome 34.0/4.4 KitKat and browsed to the auction site but.. “this plug in not supported”.
Streaming the auction, run by http://www.vortexauction.com/ required a Flash plugin.
I quickly searched the Play Store. Vortex doesn't have an auction app. Then Adobe's site, but couldn't find anything that'd work.
Firefox Beta browser, then FlashFox browser both flaked out on me.
My daughter tells me to leave her device alone - and obviously flash isn't important for what she does with it.
Not that this'll happen again as I'm modifying the backup power system – but not being able to use it in an emergency bugged me.
A quick google hasn't given me an answer for this.
