And even if we were to consider using proprietary software on the device 
  the license for Flash player does not allow you to use it on an 
embedded device:


3. Restrictions.

3.1  Web Player Prohibited Devices. You may not Use any Web Player on 
any non-PC device or with any embedded or device version of any 
operating system. For the avoidance of doubt, and by example only, you 
may not use a Web Player on any (a) mobile devices, set top boxes (STB), 
handhelds, phones, web pads, tablets and Tablet PCs that are not running 
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, game consoles, TVs, DVD players, media 
centers (excluding Windows XP Media Center Edition and its successors), 
electronic billboards or other digital signage, internet appliances or 
other internet-connected devices, PDAs, medical devices, ATMs, telematic 
devices, gaming machines, home automation systems, kiosks, remote 
control devices, or any other consumer electronics device, (b) 
operator-based mobile, cable, satellite, or television systems or (c) 
other closed system devices.

So if you want Flash use Gnash.
