    There is NO FLASH PLAYER or PLUGIN for the iPod Touch/iPhone. Jailbreak or Not.

    The hardware simply cannot handle it/There isn't enough hardware for it to handle it.

    MobileCinema is NOT a Flash Plugin. Another site encodes/transcodes the video and sends it back to you in an iPod Touch/iPhone friendly format.

    I dare you to try that on Hulu. See how far you get. Also, try playing a GAME that requires Flash. Where is your Flash then?

    ok, then its not a flash player as i would like to call it but it gets the job done. also, i realize a flash GAME would need much more cuz you got controls needed that arent on the touch. and it would be hard to play and flash game on the ipod anyways.

    Most videos on the internet, like YouTube, Vimeo, etc etc, use h264 anyway. FLV is just a wrapper/container for the video on the main sites that you see. What the device itself plays, is the underlying video in the FLV file, the original video.

    Depends on the game, Defend Your Castle would be easy to play on an Ipod touch. I honestly don't know why XGEN hasn't ported it yet.

    What is XGen? I googled it and found a website for Flash games.

    They created Defend Your Castle, or they own it anyway.
