I want to listen to the audio portion of flash on my Droid preferably with the screen off. Sites like InfoQ.com have great interviews in flash that I want to just listen to.


Look at the No Video Player app.

    That might be a good choice for video files stored locally on the device, but I don't see how it answers this question which is specifically about in-browser flash video. – Matthew Read Apr 13 '11 at 15:09
  • The "No Video Player" app does work great for local files. Thanks for letting us know about it. – Philip Durbin May 13 '11 at 2:37

This is an old question, but there just might be an answer which someone might benefit from.

Take a look at Uz Media Player https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.uzumaki.android.mediaplayer

    Why? What will this do? – ale Jul 5 '12 at 15:21

This may be a silly thing to say, but have you tried loading a site with flash, and letting it play? I would have thought it would just continue even if the screen goes blank.

If it does stop when the screen goes blank, can you download it and play it using one of the audio players that supports .flv and has the option to continue playing in the backgound? Is there an app that can play .flv?

Regarding playing non-MP4 or H.264:

Here's a SO question about having trouble stopping flash when leaving the browser.


  • Yes I have tried. As soon as the screen blanks while I just listen at my desk (to save battery life) the audio stops. Example presentation I want to listen to while driving preferably: joelonsoftware.com/items/2010/08/19.html – Brian Sep 24 '10 at 14:30

    @Brian Do you charge your phone while driving? If so you could switch on the "Stay awake: phone will never sleep while charging" option under the Development settings to stop the screen turning off. – GAThrawn Jan 21 '11 at 17:26
