    I just wanted to share something I found (it may have been already mentioned).

    I like watching the TED talks. Unfortunately the sideloaded TED talks app kept crashing in my PB.

    So when I am bridged I always have flash and javascript switched off. I went to the TED 's website and tapped on a video. Naturally it gave me an error message saying that the video cannot play due to disabled javascript, outdated flash player, e.t.c.

    BUT, the last line of the error message says "You may still be able to download the video" and the font colour indicated that this line was clickable.
    To my surprise when I clicked on it, the background became gray, a spinning wheel appeared and in few seconds I was watching the video (even full screen), bridged and javascript/flash player disabled. No lags whatsoever. It went smoothly from the start to the end.

    Enjoy!

    Are you aware that you can get these via the native PB podcast application? I have not tried this bridged or teathered but via WiFi it works very well.

    could be but in UK the podcast is not available. I just shared it cause I was excited that I can watch TED videos on the go.
