Hulu Plus on T-Mo Note 3?
I currently have a rooted T-Mo Note 3 - stock with just a few things like Carrier IQ, BlurbWallet, etc disabled and a stock Nexus 5. Comparing the Hulu Plus app on two devices it appears that Note 3 is only able to stream video at ~480p, whereas Nexus 5 is able to do 1080p. Also on Nexus I get a video quality selector with Med, HD, HQ options whereas on Note 3 this video selector is not shown.
I'm sort of torn between the two devices - I love the AMOLED screen on the Note 3, but really frustrated at the video quality issue with Hulu. I tried editing build.prop to simulate Nexus'es values and re-installing Hulu app from the store, but it didn't make a difference.I did find this article on Hulu site stating:
Unfortunately, certain Samsung phones and tablets do not fully support the high-quality streaming format Hulu Plus for Android uses (H.264 Main and High profile). As a result, in order to support these devices, we provide a different single-quality streaming profile to these devices. Therefore, since only a single quality is available, we do not make the quality selection setting accessible.
I believe however, that "the certain Samsung phones" they mention are older devices and Note 3 should have all those codecs and should be able to do 1080p.
Anyway, just want to know if anyone is able to get this to work and take full advantage of Note's beautiful screen with Hulu. Also wondering if this would work with alternative ROM whether TouchWiz or AOSP/Cyanogenmod.
Thanks in advance
