    the custom Flash Player do not support your android version, the apk is built with different API level than API level your phone supports. like the application will run on API level 19 but will not run below API 11, perhaps you need to change API level android:minSdkVersion
    or remove API level android:minSdkVersion

    Corrupted files or incomplete files can also cause parsing errors. Try to download it again or from another source.

      Typically, an incomplete file or corrupt file will cause a "problem parsing the file", and sometimes the icon for the file would show an android icon instead of the company/program logo. Wrong version files normally, but not always, would show a "not compatible with your system" or similar error message. Again, this is not always the case, but it is what I usually notice with incomplete or corrupt files and incompatible files.

    A common reason for that error I have read is and I quote "error could be from several causes, a common one being trying to open a package with an older android version" so check your android version against the flash player version as a starting point.

      i agree with the point of version incompatibility
