Sorry, but this Bravia Internet Services will not solve our problem. I have bought this blue-ray player with built-in wi-fi in order to be able to watch my favorite Newscast on my big screen. They ALL require flash player. Could Sony and Adobe try to reach an agreement for flash player to be supported by our blue ray players? Otherwise I would be thinking that I have really wasted my money! Thank you.
i guess if we all, including owners of all Sony blu ray players contact tech support with the suggestion that the frimware be updated to allow the web browser to utilize the flash player it may encourage Sony to solve this problem; i have already suggested it today to tech support and i have a s790 player!! I sure would be a nice improvement!!
Just contacted by Sony support; I was given this answer "I understand you wish Sony to develop a Web Browser for the Blu-ray Disc Player to support Adobe Flash Player contents. The web browser on the Internet video device does not support the use of Adobe Flash Player. Websites that require Adobe Flash Player may not display correctly. It is not possible to download and install the Adobe Flash Player in the built-in web browser of the Blu-ray Disc Player. The built-in Browser of the Blu-ray Disc Player is different from that of the Computer. The Computer has a Cache Memory and RAM to store the contents from websites while streaming the Adobe Flash Player supported Videos. Unfortunately, the Blu-ray Disc Player does not have any such memory to store the contents temporarily while streaming Videos in the built-in Browsers. However, I suggest that you use the built-in YouTube application to stream those videos which require Adobe Flash Player."
