How many times have you seen this advisory message come up, whilst using your PS3 browser?
Adobe Flash Player
Your device currently has the latest version of Adobe® Flash® Player that is available for your browser.

I love the above advisory message almost as much as I like error messages like:- "Unknown error" or the even more dramatic "fatal error"!
Just look at the heart of this whole advisory message a moment:-
"Your device currently has the latest version of Adobe® Flash® Player that is available for your browser."
It's an optimistic statement isn't it? Like ''the glass is half full'' instead of ''half empty'' - it is careful not to give you any identifying version of what the 'latest' version is, just that it is the 'latest version' - but the real sting in the tail comes next - "that is available for your browser".
In other words - your screwed mate - we know that everyone else is on version Adobe 10 or 11, but you have got 9!

Has there been a row over money between Sony, Netfront and presumably Adobe - if you're on a PC/laptop and it hasn't got the current version of something, it automatically goes onto the net and downloads if from somewhere half the time - why can't we have that functionality with the PS3 as well as a wifi capability to reboot the damn thing when it crashes for no apparent or displayed reason as covered in my other thread today?
Will Sony eventually be doing a firmware upgrade finally to give us a VIABLE BROWSER before most of us are OAPs or will they be bringing out a PS4 - come on Sony - how much longer do you intend to turn the screws of this particular torture?!!!

Channel 5 & quite a few other big concerns seem to have changed upto Flash 11 fairly recently, whereas Sony is hell bent on not doing anything it seems to me to upgrade the PS3's current browser to anything remotely resembling a PC or laptop one; so pray tell, why are you so confident - "the PS3/PSVita browsers will get more tweaks" - what do you know or think you know that brings you to this conclusion!I really hope you are correct, as I am sick to death of the lack of respect & 'drip-feed' of information concerning PS3's browser to - US the CUSTOMER!

Direct download links and PAYED for Private access FTP/HTTP host streaming is the way to go.
Untill HTML5 is the norm. Web sites have done this for years long before this thing call flash came along.
It also better for the public. No boring adverts overlayed. Its to late Paying to remove adverts is allready popular and Pre pay HTML5 services will replace low quality advert laiden free flash streaming services.
Its not just Commercial companies that can provide people with Direct link content even joe public can.
Flash is disabled as you can see from the overlay of the secondary window. Yet the video Is playing...
Click this test.mp4 in PS3 browser.
OR how about some gametrailers content if you don't want mine.
You may need to sign in but its Faster than PS3youtube when going Direct to their servers.
