Hi Bertus1980,

I suspect you're trying to use Flash to watch videos on the browser. You should note that the browser is subject to limitations with flash. Here's a link to the browser description:

And here's a summary with flash limitations on browser:
- Flashes version 10.1
- 5 maximum number of instances per page
- Doesn't support 'Zoom' feature
- Doesn't support multiple videos playing
- Transparent mode isn't available

Allow me to say that these aren't all the limitations, but these are the ones the I know of.

Hope this helps clears up things!

Sound on web-browser.
by Bertus1980 / November 13, 2012 11:18 PM PST

Thank you for your reply.

just a quick question, would the video still work on these sites even though it it doesn't support the website.

the video is actually better than when i stream on my pc with flash 11, but no sound. some sites have sound for a while, but then loses it after about 30 seconds.

Hi Bertus1980,

You'll notice in my previous I was careful not to say that the Web browser doesn't support the website. It's more like the reverse situation that the site doesn't support the TV in the same way that many sites don't support mobile versions of their websites for smartphone browsers.

It's more accurate to say that the Web Browser doesn't support all the features in totality in Flash. So some things might work, and other things won't.

install plugin

How about installing a plugin from a website? Is that supported by the browser?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi marp757,

Nope, sorry. Happy I realize this is frustrating, but it's the way it works.

samsung series 5 5300 problem

Thanks for the fast reply!

I now have another problem, and it is that when im watching a video on youtube after a few seconds the browser crashes with the following message:
"Last browser session ended due to lack of memory or another unkown reason "

Why is this happening? I cannot even use the browser for these kind of things? I mean youtube is pretty basic stuff.

Thank you for any comments on this matter.

See if there is a Youtube app. It's how they work around this issue on tablets and devices.

Hi Bertus1980,

Some websites intentionally block browsers based upon the device type. It may be working initially and then getting blocked. Also, the TV's storage dedicated to web browsing isn't large. So likely the cache size doesn't allow for anything larger than 30 seconds of audio.

It's a big issue. CNET for example
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / November 26, 2012 4:02 AM PST
In reply to: sound issue

CNET for example works to make content play on tablets and more. You'll find CNET issuing an app to play CNET video.

In short, report this to the web site's owner so they can tailor the web site to accommodate TVs and tablets and more.
