Hello fellow Amazoners. We just bought a smart TV (Sony Bravia) that is on the recommended Amazon prime TV list, and we love it. However, there are 2 things that we really want to stream from the Internet, and there doesn't seem to be an easy way:

1. Video on-demand from Red Bull TV
2. Video on-demand from nbcolympics.com

When we use the built in TV browser, and click on a video on-demand link that works on a PC, our TV shows an Adobe Flash error (looks like the TV doesn't have Flash installed). We've been able to find clips here and there through the YouTube app built into the TV, but we really want to be able to watch 1-2 hour video on-demand that the 2 sites above offer. I'm sure that there will be more Internet sites with video on-demand that we'll want to see in the future, so having a solution would be great! Any suggestions?

Likely need to find a media server program to run on your PC that both supports Flash and can transcode that Flash video to a format your TV can play. Hopefully, using your TV's DLNA portion, the TV can connect to and play videos from the PC server over your network.
