Yes, I am aware we tried before but the situation seems substantial
improved to me, now.
Can you post the list of flash sites, we tried with before? If users
have (esp popular ) sites, that aren't working yet, that list would be
very useful as well.
I made a post a few days ago that mentioned that other than youtube,
I haven't found many sites that work at all.
Since then, I was actually pleasantly surprised that the CNN
election map widget worked last night, so it's not complete loss.
Sites that use flash as UI widgets seem to mostly work these days.
Where it seems to still really fall over though are sites that
stream media (be that video, audio or both). For some reason
the code that was implemented for making youtube work isn't universal
enough that other sites 'just work'. Maybe it just needs some
Off the top of my head, sites I found that don't work -
ustream.tv (spectacular fail!)
justin.tv (more awesome fail!)
(any of the video news stories)
(click the graph)
There's probably a bunch of others that I tried that failed, but
I'd have to go power up my mac to dig out the bookmarks to find the rest.
