    flash not working in any browser

    Ever since updating to ice on my tf101 I have not been able to play any flash content in any browser. I have done the today's update, but the issue is the same. The video comes up and only 1/4 the of the video screen is visible. The remainder of the video is black. Full screen is all black. Depending on the browser used, it will unresponsive. Here are the steps I've taken

    Uninstalled and reinstalled flash player
    Cold boots before and after reinstalled

    Browsers used (some I know are not flash compatible)

    Dolphin HD
    Chrome
    Opera
    Flash browser
    Boat browser
    Native browser

    Sites I'm trying

    UFC.com
    YouTube

    I set all browser settings environment to desktop when possible. YouTube videos do play through the YouTube app. All flash content sites I've listed played fine previously on Honeycomb. Any help would be appreciated.

    The only other thing I can suggest is the Factory Reset route. Backing up using the appbackup utility makes it a pretty slick 90 minute job.

    I know the last 1 or 2 updates from Flash broke my full screen viewing, it shows black and the browser is toast until you exit and restart.

    I just use pinch to zoom to go as close to full screen as I can for now.

    Not sure what else to suggest.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I failed to mention that I have done a couple of factory resets back when I first installed ICS. I've also tried pinch to zoom without luck. Ill post a picture later.

    I found a site that tests and reports on your Flash version and capabilities.

    Screenshot_2012-03-15-19-02-12.jpg

    Here is a screenshot of the flash video taken from UFC.com using the stock browser. You can see how only 1/4th of the video is being displayed. It's almost as if the right side of the video is in the far left of the video window. Bringing it to full screen doesn't work. Pinch to zoom is not functional.

    Muzz. I did go to the site to verify my flash version and did see the flash animation. It verified my version as 11.1

    I'm stumped. I don't mind doing a factory reset again and taking another stab at it. Just not excited about it not correcting it and all that work for nothing since I did this only a week ago to correct this same issue. Any other ideas?

    In your OP you said you couldn't play " any flash content in any browser ".

    Is that what you meant, or are you just having problems in one or two specific sites?

    It's happening on all sites containing flash videos. I was listing UFC and YouTube because these two are sites I visit most. So yes, other sites are a problem too. Against my better judgement I went ahead with a factory reset last night including a couple of cold boots. I did not let the tablet sync with the Google Play store so that I could just have the bare minimum on the tablet from the get go. I installed flash player, cold booted and then tried these sites again. Same issue, and a new one....the frozen screen after it goes in to sleep mode. Yeah! I'm not overly concerned about that at the moment. I haven't done any setting changes as far as power, security and adding airplane mode and I think that will take care of it....hopefully.

    To be a little more specific about the flash player problem, the videos do play. It's just that they are all crunched to the left side of the video player just like my screenshot shows. Audio from the flash player does work. Lastly, depending on the browser used, playing flash content can crash the browser.

    I might try finding the ICS ROM on the ASUS site and flash it to my tablet. *Just to be clear my tablet is completely stock and not rooted* I also might even try rooting and flashing with the AOKP ROM. If I can't get flash to work that way I may consider going back to Honeycomb. I would prefer to be completely stock, but going to sites with flash content is probably 30-40% of what I use my tablet for. I'm just not sure what else to try before taking the more desperate road.
