iPhone 4: Flash Videos without Jailbreaking – New How to Guide

By Updated on

For those of you who are still getting frustrated at the iPhone’s inability to play flash content on some websites, we may have a solution for you. A new workaround has been created and you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t need a jailbroken handset to use it.

The guide comes to you courtesy of BGR, as they have compiled a list of steps which will enable you to watch flash content from websites such as Daily Motion, Vimeo and Megavideo.

As BGR rightly points out, there are already various ways to watch Flash content on iOS devices, but most of them require jailbreaking, which isn’t very convenient for the average iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad user.

Below are the steps which you’ll need to follow to get this working:

1. Navigate to http://iosflashvideo.fw.hu/ in Safari on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
2. Hit the + button (replaced by the box/arrow icon on some iOS builds), select Add Bookmark and tap Save
3. Open your bookmarks and tap Edit
4. Choose the new iOSFlashVideo bookmark
5. Delete everything before “javascript:” and tap Done


We have given this new method a test spin and we can personally confirm that it works. If done correctly, you’ll see videos which previously didnt work, start playing via Quicktime – just like they would with YouTube videos. Try it out for yourself and let us know if it works for you.
