    First of all thank you for taking Allnurses mobile. Whodathunkit?
    Second, I found it quite interesting (comical actually) that on the video the ONE forum/topic you chose to show as an example was

    i had the same problem.

    i had to download the latest version of adobe flash player to get it to work.

    if you right-click on the area where the video should play, you can click on "about flash player" and go to their websiet. then you can go to "downloads" and then to "get latest version."

    only takes a minute to install, and i didn't have to reboot my computer when it was done.

    Now listen here young Brian, you really are trying to get me into MORE strife than I am already with my addiction!!
    EXCELLENT mate!
    Technology never ceases to amaze this ol gal!
    It worked straight away for me. And considering I've been having probs with my internet connection, that's rather good.

    Now....... where's my mobile phone!!!!!!!!

    This sounds fantastic, but I can't get the video to download either. I also have a cable connection, which is usually pretty fast. I checked, and I am running the latest version of Flash Player. I was able to get the site onto my PPC by using allnurses.com, but I was wondering if there was anything different/extra that the video would tell us. Is that the "normal" internet address, or is there a different one for the PDA version?

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm confused about why this is considered new, how long has it been in place? This is how AllNurses.com has always appeared for me on my iPhone.

    i have the same problem!

    the version i get with my palm tx still looks like the "computer" version, not like the mobile version shown in the video.
    is there a certain way to log into the mobile version? or should the mobile version pop up automatically in my pda?

    I'm not sure why some of you are having problems viewing the video, I will look into that.

    This mobile version is new as of last week. The iphone and a few other mobile devices may be trying to display the full web version, I am not sure if there is a way to chose the mobile version or not? I'll look into that as well.

    Thanks for the feedback.
