Default [Q] Why can't I watch my movies in HD on Google Play Movies with an AOSP ROM?

On every AOSP ROM I've tried, I can't seem to find a way to play my movies from Google in HD or download them in HD. They only play in sd quality. And download a file that's only 200MB prior to the HD file that's supposed to download which is 2gigs+ does anyone else have this problem or found a fix for it? I really like what AOSP has turned out to be but I keep coming back to TW cuz of my movies.

Are you using an AOSP built for the new bootloader (4.4.2)? The new device tree has issues with hd

Yes I am and even before that I couldn't watch HD movies. It's been like that since the old boot loader

I had issues with watching HD Google play movies on AOSP with the old bootloader too but YouTube and downloaded videos were fine. Now I only experience the problem with HD on AOSP when on the new builds. I'm still on the 4.3 bootloader so I have the option to choose thankfully. I haven't tried Google play for videos lately though. I just use moviedroid for my video watching needs.

Hmmm. How did you get it to work on the 4.3 boot loader?

I haven't had Hd video issues on 4.3 AOSP since way early builds so I can't answer that. It was more a change done to the ROM by the developer.
