      Flash player on samsung galaxy tab 3 how to install

          There is no flash player for Galaxy (Android) anymore.

          Use either Dolphin or Puffin as your browser. They play Flash content without draining your batteries. They're free in the GooglePlay store.

              You cannot (repeat: cannot) install the latest Flash Player on an Android device, because there isn't one. Not for almost two years now.

              Use one of the alternate browsers (Dolphin or Puffin). Firefox for Android WON'T play Flash content on any device running Android 3 or higher. Period.

                Thanks for the replying mike... I have try all the thing possible on my samsung galaxy tab 3.That is installing flash player manually from archive flash player. I did try on dolphin and puffin, on dolphin it does not work and shows a blank page but in puffin flash is available only during the day time only.Also I tried in many other more browses with flash player included but not working.

                  99% of the time, the archived versions will get you a "You need the latest Flash Player" message wherever you try to use them. So basically, they're useless.

                  Apple (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (Kindle, Galaxy, smartphones) do not want their users viewing Flash content. It's just that simple. Playing Flash content is processor consumptive and it drains batteries, also shortening the life of them, and Apple & Google don't want to replace dead batteries for customers from that.

                  Apple is really good about telling iPad and iPhone customers that they can't use them for Flash content, but Amazon & Google act like it's some sort of national security secret, and the world will end if they tell a cusotmer that Flash is off limits, and they lose a sale.

                      Video is moving to HTML5, but it's up to webmasters to do the upgrade (I only upload HTML5 video anymore - NO Flash for me). Flash games and things like Facebook's multi-image uploader can't be done in HTML5, because that's only for video. They'll have to come up with Javascript or PHP solutions for some of it. The rest, will just be inaccessible unless you're on a laptop or desktop.

                          Having never owned or used an Android device (phone or tablet)... I can't say. The only way I even know about the alternate browsers is from hours of research at Google's support pages.

                            Hello Mike,

                             

                            I actually downloaded the dolphin browser on my samsung tab and install the Adobe Flash player from the browser and it worked perfectly fine.

                            My question is will this have any repercussions on my device?
