So there I was browsing on the Nokia N810 when I noticed that I couldn’t play any Flash movies or animations.
Now initially I thought maybe the Nokia N810 didn’t come with a Flash player installed, but I was sure I had seen Flash animations before on the device and after checking the Nokia website it said that it came with Flash Player Version 9 installed.
Browser based on Mozilla technology with state-of-the-art web standard support including AJAX
Page navigation with scrolling, panning or using hardware buttons, zooming in and out of web sites.
Full desktop Adobe® Flash® 9 plugin, including video and audio streaming
But it seemed to be “missing” on my Nokia N810.
So I did a Google search and that came to nothing, no one else seemed to have the same problem. It wasn’t mentioned in the FAQ on the Nokia site either.
It was looking like I was going to need to reset the device and start over.
As a last resort I started checking the browser settings and there it was the Flash player was unchecked (as was the browser video player.
Checked the checkbox for the Flash player and yes now it works.
Now I didn’t switch it off and I don’t know how it got switched off, but it was off.
Now it’s back on again.
