StagsPlayer commentary is NOT working on android via the Football League app.
PTV/FLi acknowledged in January 2014 there is still a problem with the mobile StagsPlayer for android users, despite having had since May 2013 to sort it out! Very disappointing.
UPDATE 10 Feb 2014: The club has met with the Football League rep of FLi today. He said that the "FL technical team don't know how to put Player on Android yet", but will "look at it before the end of the season". This is obviously more disappointing news.

However if you are a mobile or tablet user on an android operating system (eg. a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or a Samsung tablet), you can access StagsPlayer audio and video by first installing an old version of flash. Thank you to stagmanrob on the Stagsnet messageboard for the step by step instructions:
1. Go to "security" on your android phone/tablet. Put a tick in the check box in your settings labelled "Unknown sources" (basically this allows you to download 3rd party apps, not just ones from Google Play)
2. Download this archived version of flash player for android by tapping on this link http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/android/
(Note that this software comes from the official Adobe website http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installing-flash-player-android-devices.html)
3. When the download completes, close your browser, open Notifications, tap install_flash_player.apk, and when prompted tap Install.
4. Flash player is now installed, and your browser should automatically play audio and video in flash.
5. Don't forget to change your security settings back.
