Because Adobe stopped development of its Flash Player on Android, it is no longer available for download from the Google Play app store. That means, you can’t install flash player on new Android devices, for example Jelly Bean powered Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 tablet, therefore you can’t stream flash videos from your favorite flash-based websites. But, if you wish to watch your favorite flash-based website on your Jelly Bean powered tablet or phone, here are few things that you can try.

1. First method is downloading and installing an older version of flash player. You can download an older version of flash player for your Android device from Adobe flash player archive page.

Go here and download flash player apk. Try to install it on your device. Don’t forget to enable the option “Unknown Sources” (Settings – Security – Unknown Sources) to install non-market apps.

However, the above method might not work with all devices. If that method isn’t worked on your device, you can try Skyfire Browser for Android.

2. Install Skyfire Browser from Play Store. The browser can play Flash movies on Android devices without Flash. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with all tablets.

3. If above two methods are failed, but still need to stream flash video on your device, here is an unusual method by using TeamViewer app for android.


With the TeamViewer app for Android, you can access your computer from your android device. That means, with it you can launch a browser on your PC, go to flash-based sites and then stream videos. Everything that is shown on your PC’s screen will also see on the tablet.

Note: You might know that most YouTube videos don’t need Flash to play on Android tablets or Phone.
