Default Netflix app?

I know it just hit the market for a few snapdragon-chip phones today, so its probably early to think about it or speculate.... but, does anyone think this will be a possibility on our g-Tablets with some dev help down the road?

I wouldn't doubt the devs at this point. haha. I wonder if someone pulled the APK already. Is it a free app?

Dude. If they were able to port this onto the first gen droid running CM7, this should totally run on the gtab...haha.

Motorola DROID X, DROID 2 and First-gen DROID each get Netflix app ported to it - Phone Arena

I would love to try it but I don't have a netflix acct.

Yeah stumbled on this on XDA after all of those previous posts.. I'm going to sit back and wait on the devs so I don't have to mess with the build.. its a shame so far CM7 seems to be the only rom really working, as I like how VEGAn's ginger build is working for me

Yeah, so far it seems that unless we want to jump to CM7 (if you aren't already using it), we must be patient for the other dev's to go to work... or for Netflix to stop being ridiculous. There is no reason we should have to tweak our current devices to work the app.

hey guys, i had a few min to try the above netflix fix.

I can confirm it works but its honestly TERRIBLE. But roebeet had already listed the issues in his "caveats" section.

First, as expected, it broke the youtube app. Unable to play videos at all after the fix.

Second, there are serious color banding and quality issues.

Third, the app wont rotate when in the video selection/queue manager. You are forced to use portrait view which is terrible. The video though does work in landscape.

Ahhh I guess I am still waiting for the Honeycomb source to be released and some good video driver support. Restored to the way it was for now.

It works great on CM 7.0.3, to get around the rotation issue, install LCD density changer from the market and set it to 140 (or lower). This gave me landscape menus and individual episode selection. It WILL break the "my apps" section of the market but you can easily switch back to stock 161 density to get your updates.

Also, if you have having choppy/low quality issues, just drag the time slider back to the beginning after about 10 seconds. Clears it up every time for me.
