    A couple of questions

    Hi! I have a D2G; have had it since December last so I'm not a total noobie.

    Is this phone obsolete already? I guess I'll have to go over to phonescoop to see how far it's.sank in popularity.

    Am I the only person whose Droid isn't "rooted"? What is the reasoning behind doing this? How much damage can an inexperienced user do to his/her phone because everyone is doing it?

    Is there something that I can do (that doesn't involve being rooted :-) to have a good video viewing experience? I have yet to have a streaming video stream smoothly. It doesn't matter if it's youtube, hulu, megavideo, you name it. It also doesn't matter if it's the stock player or a downloaded player. Such a nice screen this phone has yet only Angry Birds Rio gives an idea of how well a movie would play.

    Thanks for your time if you reply.

    Have you tried converting your own dvds onto your phone? I know this won't help with something like youtube but a good decrypter/decoder software set can put some good shows onto your sd card. Of course, I don't know squat about your phone, but it is working for me on my x so far (3 movies added so far).

    By the way, I am not rooted either. Too afraid I will brick my phone for what seems to be not enough benefits. Might do it later on down the road when my warranty is expired or I can afford another phone if I mess this one up.

    Oh my, I was wary of using decrypt/decode software on my desktop, I didn't even know they made it for smartphones. But wouldn't 2 or 3 movies practically fill up your SD card? I know a stored video would play flawlessly, but I'd settle for watching a 30 second clip on You Tube.

    YouTube should play okay on the Droid2. Do you have a good 3G signal? What happens if you try it over Wifi?

    Hi. I do have a good 3G signal and most times I have 3 bars. But where surfing the net and even loading images is fast, watching the load bar on You Tube, for instance, it'll load 3-5 seconds, play that, stop, load more video for a long time while I watch that endless little circle. It gets to a point of where it'll play again, rapidly, but stop because there's no new load. By this time I'm so frustrated that I just close the video. This happens ALL the time. I'm glad I didn't get this device for it's video watching properties, but it would sure be nice to be able to.

    OP:

    1.) Your phone is not obsolete yet. The Gingerbread update for the Droid 2 was just leaked...not sure if the Global was included with that, though

    2.) I am not rooted either. Can't risk bricking my phone...

    3.) You might have poor 3G data coverage in the area(s) in which you're trying to stream. Try finding a WiFi connection to stream over instead.

    If the D2G is included in the Gingerbread update will all who want it have to do it themselves? I attempted to flash the ROM, or whatever the appropriate term, on a desktop once. It didn't work out too well and I've been leery of trying it on anything else ever since.

    2.) I am not rooted either. Can't risk bricking my phone...

    Thank you.

    Well, I haven't tried streaming with this device where I ordinarily live so I'll have to hold off for a little longer.

    I had the same problem with my Droid 1 not streaming smoothly. This work for my phone: turn off all running services you don't need in the background as in Facebook, Twitter, any auto updating stuff. Turn off your maps, gps, any news services. Anything thats putting a strain on your CPU. Also there is a dvd copier called RIPIT I use on my Mac, I think there is a pc version also, ripit will not only copy "any" dvd (from blockbuster, redbox, or any copy guarded or unguarded dvd) it will also compress the video down to a nice mp4 dvd quality video you can drag and drop into your phones video file. It took Avatar, which I think was an 8.5 gig movie down to a 2.1 gig mp4 format. My Droid played it perfectly. I had Avatar, Star Trek, Alien v predator, and Ip man (great martial arts movie) all loaded on my Droid at the same time with lots of room to spare on my memory card.
    I now have the Thunderbolt, but still use my Droid.
    hope my post helps.
