    Default Help viewing video clips?

    Recently started using a Samsung tablet. When I come on a thread in the cafe with a video clip in a post, all I see is a gray box with a puzzle piece type shape in the center and the words "This plugin not supported".
    I'm not much of a computer geek and am not having any success figuring out how to remedy this.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Dale

    While waiting for a response from site admins, try a google search on this phrase:

    samsung tablet This plugin not supported

    Thanks Mark. I tried that and it led me to some apps which really didn't help.
    If I go the the same thread/post on my iPhone or Windows computer, everything is fine. It's just this Samsung. I regret getting it for several reasons.

    I clicked on the link you provided and it gave me a message saying that Adobe Flash Player is not supported by my device.
    Thanks for your help though.
    I think this Samsung might make a good rifle target��

    Is your Samsung an Android system?

    You may be able to install an alternate web browser in your tablet that allows the flash plugin. I think the problem may lie in the default browser on your Android device.

    I think you may be right Mark. I found a site online where a guy walks you through installing an archived version of flash player. Haven't tried it yet.
