Can these things run Flashplayer?
« on: February 15, 2010, 03:36:32 PM »
... and if so, how do you install it?

I've tried the *.taz.gz file, but it seems to be broken, unless it's my unzipper.

Helpful. :)

OK, I appreciate that Flashplayer can enable some pretty demanding tasks, which one could not reasonably expect of the machine, but my daughter just wants to play games on the CBBC website.
I don't think that is too much to ask.

There have been many postings about this subject. The gist of it all is: forget it!
But there are still enough other nice games that you can play on these little machines.

Thanks to Wicknix you can find these games here:
http://3mx.taita.co.uk/ look in the packages directory and then in the folder games.
Trendtac Epc 700BL Black 128 MB RAM, 2 GB SSD, kernel V70 Skytone bootscreen, MX 4 Ultra OS.
ZTE MF628 HSDPA USB Modem (which i can't use with my Trendtac :-( )

I thought there would have been.  I was surprised that I couldn't find any. :?

Does seem a shame though: so many things seem to want it, and many of them quite clearly don't need the full functionality of the full programme.
Maybe a slimmed down version is called for?

Wicknix  has tried to make a working flash replacement I have forgotten the name of the program. But it is terribly slow according to him. As he is the Master of all programs  ;D I take this for granted. In time there will be a replacement I am sure.
If you install the MX 4 Ultra you can use the downloadhelper in Bon Echo to download the games and you should be able to play them offline in the flashplayer program. The downloadhelper also works great with YouTube video's.

I'd have been most surprised if somebody wasn't working on it.

I have been trying. . . just having a bit of a glitch with the download at the moment.
Thanks for the tips though.

That was enough of a prod to make me try again. 
This time it worked.
Only found one minor glitch so far...

I think it must have been the gnash.
And yes,there are quite a few discussion on the board about what these machines can and what cant do mate.We may need a sticky post saying " No Flash available for today's standards yet" or something like that,and nobody should enter the forum unless had acknowledged the fact.    :D

That's handled by a combi of Xine and the offline Flashplayer.
