    try getting a compatible player from the Market. :) I would recommend you MXPlayer or similar player. then visit the streaming video from your browser and when prompted, play it using the 3rd party player.

    All you need to do is is just download Puffin Web Browser and adjust your settings.
    This browser let's you play any flash content, you can watch youtube videos, you can watch live flash streaming as well. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cloudmosa.puffinFree&feature=more_from_developer

    Still unable to watch?
    I experienced that some devices even after having Puffin Web Browser installed could not play flash content.
    To solve this problem follow these steps
    Step 1 : Download any Adobe Flash Player version [ Even if it does not support your device] Just download any version and install it, if it fails try any other version for example. If you tried to install Adobe Flash Player 10.1 on your device and it fails to install then try 10.2 unless any version is installed in your device.
    Step 2 : Reboot your device.
    Step 3 : Now open Puffin Web Browser and play flash videos.

      My phone still does not allow me to download Adobe at all, it doesnt even come up in my market, I have the samsung galaxy note II and it does not allow me to watch certain videos that all my other phones aloud me to watch, for instance I cant watch videos on worldstar on this phone. I downloaded "Puffin Web Browser" but it gives me audio ONLY!

      I can't thank you enough for posting this tip. I've tried everything as a novice on my own and nothing made what I wanted to watch on line work on my Asus Nexus 7. Next device I will try this with is my Samsung Galaxy S III. I will share your link with others.
      I will be following you.

    Hey Sunil!

    There are many Android apps out there that have been specifically prevented from installing on devices based on the preferences of the app developer. For whatever reason, a developer might decide that they do not want their app running on a particular resolution screen, CPU, etc... so they prevent the app from installing through the market. However, there are a variety of methods of getting around this restriction:

    I've personally installed such apps as Market and Netflix on unsupported devices. It's very easy!
