A bookmark brings Flash video to your iOS browser without jailbreaking
Another week, another workaround for bringing Adobe Flash to iOS. This time it is a bookmarklet service, called iOSFlashVideo, which should help play videos other than YouTube in your iOS device Safari browser. Setting up the service is somewhat cumbersome, but it doesn't require jailbreaking as it is a simple bookmark, so no complaints.

First, you go to http://iosflashvideo.fw.hu from your iOS Device (iPhone, iPad or iPod), and save the page as a bookmark. Then tap the bookmark icon, press Edit and find iOSFlashVideo. Delete everything that is there before "javascript:", and tap on Done. That's it, now when some Flash video shows blank in a webpage, simply tap bookmarks and select iOSFlashVideo, the page will reload with the video ready for watching. The service supports Flickr Video, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Blip.tv, Break and Megavideo (for which you have to also download OPlayer or OPlayer lite).

The developer says that support for more video services is on its way.
