How To Play Flash Videos On Your iPhone, iPad & iPodTouch

iSwifter

One of the biggest complaints about the iPhone and iPod touch since their inception has been their inability to play Flash videos. Adobe’s Flash player is one of the most widely used tools for delivering audio, video, and animation on the Internet. But the Flash player for iPhone is conspicuously absent. Apple doesn’t and probably won’t even support Adobe’s Flash plugin because Apple charges that Flash uses up computing and battery resources too quickly and that it’s unstable, which leads it to cause computer crashes which Apple doesn’t want as a part of the iPhone experience. That doesn’t quite mean that can not watch Flash video on your iPad, iPod touch and iPhone.

Thanks to some server-side Flash-to-H.264 transcoding, you can get a lot of the video you want on the device you have.

Rather than trying to actually play Flash movies on your iPhone, when you try to load one, SkyFire’s servers take over and automatically convert the Flash file to an iPhone-compatible version and then stream it down to you.It’s not a universal app so you’ll have to buy it twice if you want it on both iPhone/iPod touch and the optimized version for iPad, but it also provides other features like social integration and private browsing mode.
