How to Watch Flash Videos without Jailbreaking Your iPhone?

Ever imagined playing Flash videos from websites like Dailymotion, Flickr Video, MegaVideo and Vimeo directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad? Yup, it's now possible with a JavaScript hack found by folks at iOSFlashVideo. More importantly, you can play embedded Flash videos from any webpage without buying any app like Skyfire or jailbreaking your iDevice.

Steps to Add iOSFlashVideo Bookmark in Safari App:

  1. Launch stock Safari app on your iPhone and open the following URL:
  2. http://iosflashvideo.fw.hu/

  9. Wait while the webpage loads completely. You will see an empty/white space where the video is embedded (This happens by default since iPhone doesn't support Flash). Once the webpage is loaded, click on the bookmark icon and select iOSFlashVideo bookmark as shown in the screenshot below.

I have tested this method on my iPhone 3G and it worked flawlessly. Do share in comments if it worked on your iDevice as well. Cheers!
