there are two problems.

1) you don't have flash.
2) chrome android is not flash compatible

the first part of the solution is to download a flash compatible browser like firefox or dolphin.

then you have to install flash the latest version is Flash Player 11.1 for Android 4.0 (11.1.115.81) from here:

installing it is not difficult but it's not necessarily obvious either. there are many guides on youtube.

Note that Flash is no longer developed or supported for Android, but you may be able to get it working by installing an archived version as linked to above.

However, perhaps installing the Facebook app would be the easiest solution.

Thanks for the Facebook tip...still no joy for me,,,,using boat browser or firefox!
┐With the FB app installed is it necessary for me to register for an actual FB account and have the app open or should flash work by simply installing the FB app?
Thank you for the help with this
