    See that you have the Latest adobe flash player installed on your Samsung Galaxy S2 and then try loading the webpage again. The adobe flash player can be download from the Play store application in your application drawer.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hello,

    If you have upgraded your
    Samsung Galaxy SII to ICS.Then there must be some problem and this OS have not been installed properly.The app in which you have played the video must have got some damage, resulting in not proper streaming of the video.
    You should go to any Costumer care shop for getting it repaired or simply download a new app.
    I hope this Works!!!!!

    Regards
    Navneet

    1) First check what type of file is available in those websites, its not the problem about website or the Device but for playing certain type of files you must install specific Apps.
    2) Install Flash players, that will play the Webpage embedded files. once you done that restart the device as well as the browser.
    3) Now the video will load normally.

    Dear Friend..

    There might be certain reason for this, like:-

    1, Your ICS is not upgraded properly
    2, Flash player problem

    If these are the problems, then you might need to update your android from the authorized service center and then play the videos with proper settings and apps,

    If this works fine, then also update your flash player which is the key player in playing online videos,
    Also ensure that you have high speed internet for this as well.

    Thank you..

    You have to download Adobe flash player since you cannot download from adobe website so you have to download it from another website such as 4 shared etc and install the latest version after that you can perfectly veiw flash content. It may be your upgrade problem but this Will solve your problem

    Hello friend.

    As you said that only some of the videos are not playing after you updated ics

    it means that your current video player is not compatible with those videos

    so try to play such videos through different video player

    hopefully your problem will be solved.

    Thanking you
