    No there isn't. I don't think the DS has the hardware to support Flash

    There is not, and there never will be a DS browser that can play modern flash things.

    This.

    The official Opera DS browser has enough trouble trying to just display webpages with a dedicated slot-2 expansion slot that has double the RAM of the DS console itself. Flash is and has always been out of the question

    And while there was a proof-of-concept port, it was of an old flash version that doesn't work for modern streaming sites and such, not to mention the performance and resolution, and blah blah blah.

    The proof-of-concept that Rydian is talking about is http://natrium42.com/blog/?p=36

    Still unfeasible in any way, shape, or form

    Yeah no way. DSLinux used onboard RAM of slot-2 devices but I don't think even 32MB is enough for flash content.

    Get Win2DS then. I remember using that to watch my game I was playing while in the living room. Sometimes I'd actually play the game from the DS.
