Many Nexus 7 users complained they can't stream/play flash videos with Google Chrome browser. Yeah, it lacks flash support on Nexus 7. And neither Google nor Adobe will plan to add flash support to any future version of Android. Well, want to find a great Nexus 7 flash player? Consider it done.

Using an available Nexus 7 flash player is indeed the easiest way to let you directly play online flash videos from most video-sharing sites on Nexus 7. However, you have to add flash support to the Google Nexus 7 first. To install flash on Nexus 7, three simple steps are needed.
1. On Nexus 7, go to the Android Settings . Open Security and select the "Unknown sources" checkbox. Then, download Adobe Flash Play 11.1 apk from XDA Developers.
2. From the Android Market, Download Nexus 7 flash player - Firefox Beta browser.
3. Firefox Beta sets plugins to "On demand" by default, which will cause some inconviences. To remedy it, you can go to its Settings -> Plugins -> Select: Enabled.
Note that I have tried lots of browsers, including Chrome, ICS+ Browser, and Dolphin Browser HD. All of them can't work with the flash plugin in Android 4.1. Firefox Beta (Note: not Firefox) seems to be the only browser that works with the method mentioned above currently.
