How can I watch flash content on my Samsung galaxy S5?

I just got a Samsung galaxy S5 but I now realise that it can’t run the Adobe Flash Player. This is annoying as the best website for the music I listen to and the online football matches I watch needs Flash, which I had in my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S3). Can you suggest any alternatives or other ways to replace the Adobe Flash player?

    You may have to change the user agent by pressing the settings button while in Firefox, and then select Request Desktop Site. Not all websites work or change when this is selected. More information about viewing flash content on Firefox Android can be found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-watch-flash-videos-firefox-android.

    Keep in mind that Android Kit Kit 4.4 dropped all support for flash, so there will be issues. I have been able to view most flash content on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 running Kit Kit 4.4.4, but Maxthon and the stock browser does not show flash content at all (Maxthon will load the content and play audio only). I'd try either the Dolphin Browser method or Flash Fox.

    I am having the same issue. I tried Firefox and it didn't open the flash content.

    You can manually download and install Adobe Flash Player for mobile/Android devices. A quick Google search would offer many outlets to get the installer file. In order to view flash content on websites, download and install Firefox Mobile as it will still allow the flash plugin to run, even on Android 4.4 (supposedly all support for flash content is lost with 4.4 updates). However, if a more updated version of Adobe Flash Player is needed to play certain content, you can't update mobile flash player since 11.1 is the last version made for mobile platforms.
