I am trying to use HTML5 to play video on browsers and devices, however I'm having trouble getting it to work on Android. I'd like a sniffer that would give Android users the Flash version of the video. The problem is that I have zero idea how to do this. HELP!!

Make a Google search for "User Agent" and also search the PHP.net web site for the term.  I can't remember for sure, but I am almost certain that you can detect Android with that kind of information.

are you trying to 'sniff' the traffic and analyze it

try this

or are you just trying to determine if the device hitting your app is using android so you can redirect it???
