Big News! The Sony Blog just posted that firmware 2.5 would add flash player 9 support!

Can't wait to see how this effects sites like Hulu and Pandora!

This IS big news! I hope you aren't pulling my leg.

I hope web standards can hold firm at flash v9 for a while, because this never ending cycle of newer flash players is just creating more problems than good, imo. Newer, fancier players are just more reason for silly CPU hog antics and memory-bloat issues. Anybody remember when the internet was more about accessing information than watching videos? All this flash stuff is just so they could make all videos "watch-only", as opposed to downloadable. Arguably, that was satisfied at v7, so this endless upgrade track is a measure of overkill upon overkill. Adobe should find more legitimate avenues for revenue!

I don't have much to argue about the current ps3 browser, as far as making it do more. I think it is fine for keep it simple and slim. If they are going to work on it, just make it more snappy and bullet-proof for memory issues. If somebody else wants to work on an uber browser for ps3, that is fine, too.

Pandora doesn't require Flash 9; the PS3 browser just doesn't have enough memory. Which suggest Hulu will continue to not work in the browser.

So are you saying that even though we are getting Flash 9 we still won't be able to play streaming videos of the internet in that format?

Something doesn't sound right about that. If you can't get internet radio streaming to work in something far less than 256 MB of ram, something is seriously wrong with that code. I don't think this is an issue of memory, rather support for object xyz.

This PS blog post says that it will let us watch streaming videos...or at the very least the PS blog videos:

On a related note, the PS3 firmware update (2.50) will add Flash Player 9 support to the PS3 Web browser, so you’ll be able to actually watch this video (and all of our blog videos) on your PS3 once the firmware goes live!

Normal videos like gameplay videos and stuff would be fine (Youtube works); I'm just thinking along the lines of longer, higher-quality video like Hulu.com

Yeah, I'm referring to videos like what you find on cbs.com or fox.com. Need to keep up with missed epsiodes of network shows and that's my primary reason for wanting this update.

It would have been mine too if I hadn't just bought a HTPC. My reliance on the PS3 browser dies today, ironically enough.

I bought my 2nd PS3 because I have an HTPC. Several years ago I built my own HTPC for DVR purposes. When I found I could stream from the HTPC/DVR to PS3 using TVersity, I bought a 2nd PS3 for the bedroom so I could watch my DVR programs in more than one room. I will sometimes even move that PS3 from room to room depending on where I'm wanting the 2nd viewing device for the DVR.
