Skyfire VideoQ for iPhone and iPad now available

Skyfire Labs have released their new iPhone and iPad apps, Skyfire VideoQ, as a method of watching flash videos.

Skyfire VideoQ™ is a new kind of App that lets you watch Flash Videos while browsing with Safari or any iPad/iPhone browser! Simply click the ‘Mail Link to this Page’ on any browser to email the video URL to your ‘Queue’ and open the App.

  • Simply register your email address in the App.
  • Use the “Mail Link to this Page” button in Safari or any browser to email a webpage with a Flash video to video@skyfire.com.
  • Videos sent from your email address will appear in your Skyfire VideoQ.
  • Copy the URL of a webpage that has a Flash video and open Skyfire VideoQ.
  • Install our bookmarklet into Safari. Once you find a page with a Flash video, just use the bookmarket to send the page to your Skyfire VideoQ.

One of the biggest complaints about iOS is the incompatibility with Flash. Skyfire VideoQ may not completely fill that gap, but since a huge amount of Flash content on the web is video, it's a great solution for many people.

Skyfire VideoQ is available on the iPhone and iPad for $1.99. Screenshots and video after the break.

Wonder if this can bypass the countryblock on BBC...

TychoQuad says:

Don't think so, I just tried to bypass the country lock on southparkstudios.com using their iPad browser, and all I got was a video of their denied screen :(

Liv says:

Damn. Back to using VPN then. Works on pandora as well tho.

TychoQuad says:

Damn, if I'd known this was coming out, I wouldn't have bought the full SkyFire app.

James says:

"Now available" should read "now available in some places but not others"

WebGal Pat says:

Does it really work? How much of a delay before your flash vid starts?

Jordan says:

Just bought it. Works pretty good. Video wasn't exactly HD, but definitely watchable.

Morac says:

How does this differ from the existing SkyFire app which can already play most Flash videos?

Mauro89 says:

Guys, I tried and downloaded Puffy, it's less expensive, multiplatform and handles Flash much better, allowing not only videos but also other type of content. I like it better.

Moonbaseone says:

Still can't rewind/fast Foward videos??!

Lui says:

Life isn't fair...especially when supply and demand are involved.
