As you guys can see I spent better half of yesterday, trying to connect my glasses to my computer, and I finally managed to do so.

I have copied over movies and TVshows to my glasses and the video software works perfect.

How ever..... the google glass disply have a blueish color to it. I can watch movies, but the "blue filter" is abit anoying.

All google menus and everything else works perfect, I guess they are not made to show movies.


Does anyone else experience this?
I havent found any other posts on the internet about this.

I watch Netflix on my Glass all the time and have never experienced any discoloration.

What app are you using on your glasses for that. It could be worth trying.

I have to ask...

Watching anything on Glass is less than ideal. And considering you need your smartphone to use Glass 99% of the time, why are you watching video on Glass and not your smartphone? Not only is your smartphone screen larger and easier to view, you don't have to look upward straining your eye. Just curious..

I work as a software developer. It's really convenient having Netflix in the corner of my vision while I hack away on my work computer without interfering with my work space. I definitely wouldn't recommend staring at the prism for the duration of an entire movie though.

And yes I'm using the normal Netflix apk from the Play Store.

Okey, I managed to adb install netflix.apk

but when I try to adb install Settings.apk and adb install Launcher2.apk
I get error: Failure [install_failed_uid_changed]

Does this have something to do with XE18.11??

Im using this guide:
