Moving this discussion to the Installing Flash Player forum.
I am sorry, but you can't download anything while using the Internet Channel. And wanting Nintendo to enable downloads in the Internet Channel will open the Wii to hacks and viruses from the internet.
So there is no way you can upgrade the Internet Channel's Flash player yourself. You'll have to wait for Nintendo to update the Internet Channel with a newer Flash player version (currently the Internet Channel uses Flash Lite 3.1 which is equivalent to Flash 8).
So if you're trying to watch a video that is Flash 9 or higher, the Internet Channel won't run the video. You'll have to use your computer for viewing it until Nintendo updates the Internet Channel with a newer Flash player.
Bummer! Thanks for the info.
