    No you can not play flash movies. Flash is not supported in any form

    No you can not do that in unity, on none of the platforms.

    You would need to use native platform movie playback capabilities for that when you are on mobile (on desktop you are completely out of luck)

    Create a DLL on top of OpenCV to read the video file and convert each frame to a texture that Unity can use. There are about a half-dozen ways to skin this cat using just OpenCV alone if you want to go all the way to creating your own video player inside of Unity3d. I believe there is an OpenCV addon (it may already now be part of OpenCV 2) that will decode FLV so pulling YouTube videos directly in to Unity3D should be a trivial matter. There are plenty of other video playback libraries out there you can make use of, just OpenCV comes to mind because we are using it for handling videos on a medical simulation project.

    Yeah, sure, let me go to Google and type in "OpenCV" for you and then write up a report on what it does.

    Movie Textures are not supported on Android. Instead, full-screen streaming playback is provided using Handheld.PlayFullScreenMovie
