    Hi everyone,

    It's good to be a member of your forum. What problems can't be solved by putting our minds and abilities together? No need to answer that...it's a rhetorical question.
    I bought my Ipod Touch "nused" off Craig's list a couple weeks ago. The sellers were selling an 8 gig for $180.00 that was still factory sealed. It works great and I've enjoyed learning how to use it. It seems to have so much potential for such a small device! There are a couple of things about the Ipod that have been frustrating. First, Apple (as far as I know) does not make the IPod compatible with third party applications. Also, I can't watch tv shows or movies off of Netflix or Hulu. I know that flash videos are supported to some extent as Youtube is accessible but why is it that I can play Flash videos on Youtube and not on other sites that have Flash video formats? Throw me a bone here?!

    Thanks,

    Doug Hazzard

    You do not need to Jailbreak to install 3rd Party Apps. Apps on the App Store ARE 3rd Party. You only need to Jailbreak to install non-App Store Apps.

    YouTube is available because it offers its videos in *.mp4 format. When you play videos off YouTube its not actually using flash.

    Great answers...That explains the issue with youtube vs. other videos sites.
