    anyone know if veetle.com will be able to work on the playbook any time soon? one of the main reasons why i bought the playbook was so i can stream some sports on this bad boy at work and school

    I was thinking the same especially for the NBA playoffs when I'm at work.

    thats what i meant yes videos on there play fine. the playbook handles all flash! even sites that are 100% flash!

    i understand it handles 100% flash but veetle has its own player and the videos dont play because its not a flash player

    hadn't been to this site before so decided go check it out, but when I tried the turtle movie it said I need to install a HD player. Is that possible on the playbook browser? plugins?

    I just got a playbook and Veetle is not working. The player is not even showing up, just a white screen where it should be. Does anyone has any ideas what is going on? I know that the hd needs a plugin, so I tried the tv shows that I checked on my laptop to make sure it is not an hd channel. I was wondering if the 2.0 update has anything to do with it. I would love to solve this problem if it is possible since one of the reasons I got the PB to watch Veetle....
    Thanks all.

    P.S. Just realized that this is an old thread so if anyone still has Veetle working please let me know!

    I was watching a movie last night. Tonight this is what I got. I tried sideloading the veetle bar file but it doesn't work - it wants me to download flash since the PB has flash natively it makes no sense.

    It works through SimpleBrowser with the user agent set to FireFox. There is a Write To Us link on the top, I suggest we all politely ask them to help us. Here's the message I sent:


    Is there a particular reason why the BlackBerry PlayBook browser is being blocked on your site? It had been working fine until just recently. It does work when using a brwser with a different user agent string. Hopefully, this is just a simple oversight that can be corrected soon and the 1 Million + PlayBook users will be able to access your wonderful site. Thanks for your time.

    How do you change the user agent?

    Simple browser paid version works fine. Only $1.99 in Appworld. Unfortunately it has other issues (mostly with tabs, and I had my first crash with it today) but it's worth the two bucks.
