I've noticed any apps that use the Flash player via the browser to play video just fail with a flash error. For example, trying to play a video via Amazon Video On Demand (via the installed App, which just launches the browser on Amazon's web site) results in "The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Flash"

Some Flash ads for example work, while other Flash games crash too. I hope there is a way to update Flash and fix this.

  • HoneyComb 3.1.0

  • Adobe's Flash Version check shows I have Flash installed.

    • Flash Player Version: 10.2.163.145
    • OS: Linux 2.6.35.14-ge141a01 (32-bit)
    • Capabilities: GTV 10,2,163,145 (Including Audio, Video & Local Files)

Adobe's site says the latest version of Flash for Android is 11.1.111.8 (Android pre-ICS).

Have you been able to find a solution? If so, maybe you answer your own question and accept the solution -- or accept acg93's answer if that did it. This would help people with a similar problem to see how to resolve it. Thanks! –  Izzy Aug 14 '12 at 18:30
    
@Izzy: There was an update to the Google TV OS that seems to have fixed my issues. –  Jim McKeeth Aug 14 '12 at 19:36
    
So maybe you should give this as your own answer here and accept it -- see If the solution was a simple upgrade, should I close or answer my question?. Thanks! –  Izzy Aug 14 '12 at 19:59

The Honeycomb 3.2 update for Logitech Review fixed this.

I'm not sure where you would find one, but you could try sideloading the Flash Player app from the Play Store as installed on another HC 3.1.0 device and see whether that can display Flash content any better.
