    Probably not ever. Adobe stopped development of mobile Flash last year.

    Well that stinks. Then I think every website should have a mobile app/version that doesn't need flash

    That probably will happen eventually. Adobe Flash is laggy, buggy and a security risk for the desktop. Desktop Flash will not disappear overnight, but it is probably on its way out, as more sites adopt HTML5.

    Its a shame we can't override the useragent in the browser.

    Most websites use the useragent to detect an iPhone, and switch to HTML5 for video. They don't bother with the WP8 devices.
