Can I watch a film on my phone?

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I managed to unlock my San Fran 2 without too much difficulty - thanks to all for your help (esp Psych0killa). Now I have paid for a film from Market but it says I can't watch it because my phone is rooted. Is there any way of watching films - I have tried DVD decrypting software and then using Handbrake to reformat. I put the file on my phone but just get a blank screen (wasn't sure where/how to store it). I have no technical knowledge so any simple answers would be appreciated.

Because the new Android Market adds support for movies, among other things, the much needed update to Videos opens up access to devices running Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread).[/size][/font][/color]
[color="#111111"][font="Verdana"][size="2"][font="inherit"]Now to some bad news: as suspected, if you are using a rooted device, you will be able to run the Videos app but won't be able to play any content through it. Paranoid Google is paranoid, some meme lovers would say.[/font]

[font="inherit"]It's interesting to point out that if you don't install the Videos app, the new Market will simply redirect you to YouTube in your browser when you press My Movies. Once you install the Videos app, My Movies jumps directly into the app. Nifty.[/font]

[font="inherit"]I'm going to leave this warning here:[b] do not purchase movies if you're rooted, as your purchase will actually go through, and your credit card will be charged, yet you will be greeted with this screen[/b]:[/font]

[center][font="inherit"][url="http://cdn.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/wm_snap20110712_170203.png"][img]http://cdn.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/wm_snap20110712_170203_thumb.png[/img][/url] [url="http://cdn.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/wm_snap20110712_170237.png"][img]http://cdn.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/wm_snap20110712_170237_thumb.png[/img][/url][/font][/center]
[font="inherit"][b]Tip[/b]: If you want to request a refund for a movie you purchased that refuses to play, head over to[url="http://www.google.com/support/androidmarket/bin/request.py?contact_type=movies_app"]the form on this page[/url].[/font]

[font="inherit"]Considering the amount of rooted devices and Google's overall friendliness towards rooting, I'm curious how long it'll take them to figure out a way to take our money. I hope the answer is "soon," because the flood gates are now open, and thousands of enraged Android fans are reaching for their pitchforks.[/font]

I was going to mention this, wasn't at all expecting it to be compatible let alone work as well as it does. I get the audio sync issue they can't quite seem to fit and it lags a little... now all they need is some films to watch.

Have you changed the ROM, clock speed or SD card class? I'm wondering if one of those is bottlenecking me if yours works fine.
