For people who'd like to enjoy online videos on Samsung Galaxy S4 for the very first time, below article offers detailed instruction about how to install Adobe Flash Player on Samsung Galaxy S4 for video watching.

"I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 for my daughter as birthday present. Everything was great until she watched cartoons from YouTube, and the screen indicated that we cannot continue without installing flash player. I looked at the list of Adobe Flash Player certified devices, there is no Samsung Galaxy S4 and I cannot find Adobe Flash Player from Google Play Store either. Does that mean I cannot watch online videos on Galaxy S4?"


Adobe announced last June that they would be discontinuing their development of the Flash Player for mobile browsers for security concerns, which means Adobe Flash Player is no longer available in Google Play Store and you would get nothing but a "Flash Player is not installed" warning when attempting to watch online videos or Amazon Instant Videos.

While Android users including Samsung Galaxy S4 users expect to watch flash videos through mobile browsers. How to make this happen? Below article will help enable you to watch Flash videos and even allow you to play a few touch optimized Flash-based games on your Samsung Galaxy S4.
