Thanks BigFoot, believe it or not I did it ! I can watch tube links on my Kindle now.

You will need; ES File Sorter, Dolphin 8.5.1 and Flash player

The problem is that Flash support for Android has been dropped by Adobe.

So any recent Android tablets and phones (Inc Kindles) no longer have support available from just downloading Flash from the Play Store.

There have been unofficial ways of getting it working but I've never really tried - I don't generally have issues on my Blackberry (or maybe I'm just not watching any flash videos) or my Windows 8 devices though don't really bother with video on my phone very often so may have been .GIF format files instead.

Using the second browser on the Kindle works great A bit of a faff to install it all correctly but worth it
