It streams for 2-3 seconds then returns to the main screen.
Sent from my DROID2 GLOBAL using DroidForums
I have a Droid 2 Global (rooted, stock ROM) as my primary phone. I have my old Motorola Droid (rooted, CyanogenMod 7.02) without a phone account used only on WiFi.
I was able to install Netflix-mediaclient-2.apk on the Droid where it works fine.
The same apk does not work on the Droid 2, I get the above failure to actually play a video but the other app functions (queue, browse, etc) work. The failure symptoms are as described above.
Although I've seen/heard comments about the video/audio quality not being much good, when my D2G is connected to my home wifi (wireless N on a 20mbps feed) the video quality looks HD, the audio quality is also VERY good when you're using headphones/earbuds.
Doesn't "eat batteries" as badly as some people would have you believe, I like using mine for this while the phone is sitting in one of my multimedia cradles.
Haven't seen the Netflix app do it, but the HBOGo app will give you a dialog box when you're on 3G telling you that on 3G your picture quality may not be much good. Actually gives you the option to switch to an audio only stream.
