This page will help you to install and utilize Adobe shockwave flash on your android powered device.
At least it worked on my Samsung Galaxy S4. This does not require your phone or device to be rooted. You may need some technical assistance from your grandchildren but otherwise it is fairly painless install. After all, I am gonna lead you through it.
There are one, two or possibly three major steps involved in allowing your Android powered device to view online as well as local (on your device) content. Then there is one minor step to get it all running.
The FIRST possible major step will be to download and install one of two different browsers from the Android Market place (Playstore) onto your device. If you already have either the "FireFox" or "Boat" browser installed on your mobile device you can disregard this step. You've only got two steps to go and you can skip down to the second step. Otherwise Open the Android Market (Playstore) on your device and search for either the "FireFox" or "Boat" browser. When you have found and chosen one of these two browsers, download it, and then install it.
The SECOND possible major step will be to download an file handling program file from the Android Market place (Playstore) and install it onto your device. Personally I recommend Astro File Manager as I already had it on my device. You can either download and install that program from the Android Market (Playstore) or else one of these programs Apps Installer, App Installer, z-App Installer or Fast Installer. Of course if you already have any of those programs installed on your mobile device then you can skip to step three below. Otherwise open the Android Market (Playstore) and find any of the above named file handling programs and install them. Proceed to the Third major step. And yes for all of you tech gurus I know there is other ways to install a SDK file but I am trying to keep it simple here. So hush for a second please.
The THIRD step will be to download and copy an application file to the root (top level) directory of your devices external micro SD memory card and then installing that application file. I have made it convenient by putting a copy of the apk file right here so that you don't have to search for it. As I believe that you cannot directly download it and install it using your mobile device you will have to use an computer to download and copy the file to the root/top level directory of your devices external micro SD memory card. You may be able to transfer the apk file from the computer to the memory card using either blue tooth, hard wired or Wi-fi file copying/management program. So you should power off your device and remove the external SD Memory card. Me, I just used an Micro SD card adapter to copy the file. Again it is imperative that the sdk file be copied to the top level / root directory of the memory card and not to the phones/devices internal memory. So here is a link to the sdk file called “com.adobe.flashplayer.apk” that again you must download and install to the root/top level directory (folder) of your devices external memory card. Put the external memory card in your device and reboot it at this time. Here is the link.
Now that you have completed all of the THREE MAJOR steps, the final step will be to activate/run the sdk file utilizing one of the program applications listed in the SECOND step above. Since I used Astro File Manager I will step you through the process using that program. Everybody else using any of the other programs you can fend for yourself or experiment like I did to get it to work. In the Astro File Manager application maneuver to the external microSD card top level (root) directory and then find the com.adobe.flashplayer.apk. Select/click on it and there should be a pop-up warning screen that says “Install blocked”, click on the settings button. When the next screen appears it should be a Security screen and you need to scroll to a menu item that says “Unknown Sources”. Put a check mark in the unchecked box of the Unknown Sources line and then when that brings up a pop-up window asking to allow installing from unknown sources click on “OK” and then click on “Install” at the next screen.
Voila, you are now ready to enjoy Adobe Flash content on your mobile device.
So now go to either the FireFox or Boat browser on your mobile device and open the page link for the LiveStream webcam. There will be one additional item and you will have to enable the plug-in when it initially pops up in your browser window. It may then take a minute or two for the browser to initialize and the stream to begin. I actually rebooted my device in order for it to begin working. So that may be a trick that you to will have to utilize.
