Stand Alone Flash Player For Games And Movies Only
Jul 19, 2011
I do not want Flash in web pages, especially those stupid ads. I *do* want the ability to play Flash games and movies that are flash only and will not be changed to other formats. There is a lot of good Flash media. I am aware Flash is a resource hog and sucks the life of batteries, but as a stand alone player I can control when I want to see it, if I want to see it.
Is there something to enable to iPad to be used as a kind of browser / controller for a stand alone media player (that is connected to a HiFi / TV) ? I suppose an Apple TV would be an obvious one. I would like the iPad to have an iTunes-style interface that has access to music & video content stored on a NAS, and can control a media player to play that content. Not the iPad itself playing it. I read about Remote App for iPad/Apple TV which is I suppose what I want, but of course that means being limited to what media Apple TV supports (not video files).
Or does anyone know of any alternative devices running a different OS that could do it ?
I can't view some things on the internet without Adobe flash player installed and get a message on my ipad thats its not compatible. Is there something else i need to install in order to make this work?
