Play Flash Videos on your iPhone or iPad with Skyfire VideoQ

Skyfire, the company behind the¬†flash-enabled Skyfire Web Browser, just released a new utility for the iPhone, the iPod touch and the iPad, designed to play flash videos on your device. The app, called Skyfire VideoQ, works in two steps. First, simply send links to the flash videos you want to play by email (for instance, in Mobile Safari, all you need to do is to use the “Mail Link to this Page” button to email the webpages with the videos to Skyfire’s servers). From there, the videos get automatically converted to an iOS friendly format, and after a short while, the videos will be made available through the app. Skyfire VideoQ‘s interface is basic, and straight to the point: the app shows all the videos you’ve queued up, as well as popular videos queued up by other users. Based on our tests, it takes at least 15 seconds for the videos to be made available through the app, and in some cases, it can take up to several minutes, depending on the length of the original video. The end result does not look as good as the original video, but is still decent, especially given the fact that Skyfire only charges for the app once, for an unlimited number of uses.

Skyfire VideoQ is compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 4+, and can be bought from the App Store for $1.99.
