There is definitely an issue with the on screen controls and Netflix, BBC iPlayer, TV Anywhere (Virgin) etc

Many people have complained on Netflix's Play Store page by giving 1 star and saying since the Netflix update you are not able to pause, scroll forward or back as the on screen controls appear for a split second and then disappear, but it isn't Netflix's fault as the same issue exists with BBC iPlayer (downloaded content playing back only - not streaming) and Virgin's TV Anywhere.

This only began after the OTA upgrade to 4.4.2.

Apart from my feelings that the battery is draining quicker, the navigation is not as fluid and the native video player sound is not as good, this update has proved to be a failure in my view.

I read that the bootloader was locked so custom rom is out of the question at the moment (I think, not that clued up on such issues) - but I wouldn't want to root anyway as it renders Sky Go and other apps useless.

Can someone shed some light as to what is wrong and how to fix?

No problem with BBC I Player. Don't use the other two. I'm rooted and been able to get rid of some of the Samsung junk. Can't run apk's as reported in another thread. Have you a link to the bootloader issue?

So if you download a programme on iPlayer and watch you are able to pause while watching?

The thread I saw the locked bootloader info was here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2788770 - but I am not sure if this is referencing a different rom?

Netflix is still broken, there's been about 3 bug fixes lately & not one of those fixes the controls.

If you guys still need a fix, I have it. It is an edit to android.policy.jar. Let me know if you need it.
