Confused: wm6.5 can't find browser with Flash Video support

I read a news article describing windows mobile 6.5 and it reported that it would finally include a full functioning IE6 webbrowser with Javascript, imbedded video support, flash, etc. But when I upgraded to MightRom6 I couldn't even get the desktop version of YouTube to show any videos much less abcnews, hulu etc. Do I have a setting wrong somewhere? It was the sole reason for the upgrade.

Ok, just installed skyfire and it's a bit clunky but it does do a passable job of the video sites. Much better than the original Beta I tried out a year or so ago.

I miss the old way where you could go to YouTube or click on a youTube link and it would automatically ask you if you would like to download the video to your phone and play it with TCMP. That worked so well and the video was great. The only drawback was it didn't work with all the video sites. SkyFire does. That's nice!
