    I tested standard Internet Browser and Dolphin Browser with Jetpack and Beta 9.

    Movies dont start in most cases and if a movie start there is no video ...only sound.
    Tested with different soundsettings but always the same.
    My Minix is connected via HDMI and Wifi.

    Only Flashplayer works for some seconds, but after some seconds, the player stopped. I tested with xda version of the flashplayer. This is the same like other betas.

    Anyone an idea how to watch movies in browser? This is my main reason why i buy this device but still cant use it.

    So, the websites that your trying to play your movies from, do they use HTML5 or Flash? I am sort of confused here.

    I was trying different sites. HTML5 and Flash Movies dont work in most cases.
    I didnt try to play a HTML5 movie with flashplayer :)
    The error which i described in the headline occured only in HTML5 Movies.

    Sorry for my bad english, im not a native speaker.

    No more Flash support on Android...
    Try m.youtube.com , it works.
    I don't think there is a bug.

    Maybe you can try to open the video(stream) with a media player, works great for me(xmbc) but not many websites offer this option
