One of the great things about Dolphin Browser for Android is that you are able to view Flash videos and play Flash games on your mobile device. Having this ability on your phone gives you access to much more content on the web.
However, Flash doesn’t always run perfectly on the phone. If you’re running into issues with Flash, though, here are some tips to help you out:
Check your Flash settings
In order to view Flash content in Dolphin Browser, you must first install the Adobe Flash Player app on your phone. Here is the link for your reference: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/android/126.96.36.199/install_flash_player_ics.apk
From there, enable Flash Player by going to Dolphin Settings > General > Web content. Select either ‘Always on’, ‘On demand’, or ‘Off’, depending on your preferences.
Please also remember to enable Jetpack from the settings in order to get the best experience possible.
Check for an Intel Processor
Unfortunately, Dolphin Browser doesn’t support Flash for devices with an Intel processor. Dolphin can only play Flash based on the Adobe Flash Player, and Flash Player does not currently support devices with Intel CPU.
However, there is a potential bright side. Some bigger sites will provide two formats for Flash – one in normal Flash format and one in HTML5 format. When your user agent is set to Android, Dolphin will prioritize the normal Flash format over HTML5. If your phone has an Intel processor, try switching to a different user agent to see if the video works. You can set your user agent by going to Dolphin Settings > Advanced > User Agent.
Check Your Network
Sometimes, you may encounter a Flash animation or video that keeps loading but never successfully plays. This may be due to a weak Wi-Fi signal. Try checking to see if other webpages load successfully, or disconnecting from the network and re-connecting to see if that helps.
Finally, if you still encounter issues or you see a prompt to install a higher version of Flash Player, email Dolphin at [email protected] with the full website URL and device details. Dolphin will often build Flash updates into their subsequent releases to make sure Flash is working with as many sites as possible.
With these tips, you’ll be on your way to enjoying Flash content in no time. Download Dolphin Browser for Android today to get more out of the web!
