How to view the Pittsburgh Bald Eagle Webcam on your Android Device


The problem:
Since Android V4.1 Jelly Bean launched in June 2012, Adobe itself stopped developing Adobe Flash Player for mobile devices. Adobe Flash Player is needed to view the Pittsburgh Bald Eagle Webcam.


Solution:
1. On your Android device Open Settings > Security and enable the Unknown Sources option. You will need to observe the warning – this basically explains that your phone will be more vulnerable to malware if you install apps that weren’t download through Google Play – and click OK if you accept.

2. Download Flash Player 11.1 from Adobe's Archive Site

3. Install Flash - After the Flash Player downloads, go ahead and Install it. It'll add a Settings App to let you configure the way it works, but you don't need to use it as the plug-in needs to run from within a browser.

4. Download FireFox from the Android Play Store (That's the only browser for Android which will work with Flash)

5. Open Firefox, tap the menu button and open Settings > Plugins and choose Enabled. Videos and games should then run smoothly on your Jelly Bean phone or tablet.

Note:
We have tested this on Samsung Galaxy devices and Google Nexus Pads and found the solution to work. However, this solution didn't work on Amazon Kindle/Nook Pads.
