Hello, I would like to buy Raspberry Pi but first I need some answers:

1) With native browser is possible to view websites in Flash or Java ?

2) With a key USB is possible to view in my TV a Divx movie ?

Thanks.

For question 1:

As far as I know you cannot view flash, java or html5 in the default 'Midori' Browser. :(

Sorry but I am not the person to be answering question 2....

You need to install the plugins yourself.
To view Flash then install the Gnash browser plugin.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install browser-plugin-gnash


To view Java then install the IcedTea-web plugin.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install icedtea-plugin


The two plugins are compatible with all browsers that supports loading NPAPI browser plugins.
Famous browsers like Firefox, Chromium and Moidori do support NPAPI.

Yes its possible, take a look at the
http://www.raspbmc.com/
and
http://openelec.tv/ - http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title ... spberry_Pi
both can be installed on a sd-card and support running movies with full hardware acceleration from a USB stick or across the network from a NAS.

Note that gnash is *very* slow and not fully compatible.
This will be very hard to improve (and Adobe wants to kill Flash anyway).

HTML5 video doesn't work yet. Note that the Pi's CPU power is limited.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
apt-get install iceweasel


should install Iceweasel - which is Firefox renamed for trademark reasons.
You can also install chromium-browser (Chrome/Chromium).

IceWeasel looks impressive - they have done a great job porting Firefox to the raspi ... but it is too slow. It takes several minutes to load a page, even on an overclocked pie

... and no flash support

If you wish, Pidora allow you to have "the real" Firefox.

Iceweasel is a Debian port not Raspberry Pi port. The Firefox name and logo was trademarked so it could not be in Debian.

If you want YouTube , try gkreidls Minimal Kiosk Browser.
It supports HTML5 videos on other sites , too (only fullscreen
though).

Another option would be XBMC plugins , but you can't use them
directly under Raspbian.
