    watching video at NET-tv most times nos possible

    When I, using NET-tv, want to look at trailers or video it is often not possible. Reason for it is that the software you need for it is not installed. For instance when you need Quick-Time, it is impossible to watch the movies. Downloading of the software is not possible. Who has the solution?

    Dear Ikwester:
    The browser in the TV only supports CE-HTML format.

    When you browse the open internet websites you will notice that on websites with video, the video will not play.
    Most websites have video or animations in "Flash" format. The site might notify you to install the Flash player. Regretfully, that is not possible. The TV does not allow you to install any software. No Flash, no Quicktime, no MediaPlayer, no PDF, nothing.
    It is a pity, this gives a limitation on browsing the open internet; only the more static web pages are acceptable to watch.

    But there is a growing amount of Services on Net TV where video is supported.

    An advantage of this is that you donít have to worry that the TV will download any virus, also that it canít do.

    Dear NetTVMod,

    a solution might be to install the common "plugins" with the tv-firmware.

    regards

    Hi,

    I think Philips want to say, that Flash etc. is not supported by the CE-HTML specification...

    Hi There,

    I'm new to NetTV. Does it support html5 videos on webpages?
    Most are in h264 which the tv supports natively.

    Is or will there be some support for the upcoming webM video codec?
    (e.g. Firmware upgrade)

    Thanks in advance

    Kev

    Sorry Philips, this is a lame response.

    We, the UK Philips consumers would like to access the most significant and popular online video sites using our lovely expensive internet enabled TVs - not online porn but the major TV channels. This means providing us with a Flash enabled browser.

    The CE-HTML story is valid but a poor excuse for not delivering the things we bought the TV for.

    Employ one of my graduate students for a week and they will deliver the Flash enabled browser that we want.

    +1 for video/Flash support on the internet. Why do you make crippled TV sets and advertise them as "NetTV"?? I am so deceived.

    There is an announcement form adobe, that they will deliver their newest Flash Media Server with HTTP Live Streaming option. This is used in iOS, which also does not support flash.
    I assume, that HTTP Live Streaming is compatible to NetTV? Or are there more standards?

    So long-term, flash is not really necessary on a TV, when video providers are updating to support also iOS devices.
