let me know...
So has anyone tried to queue up Netflix stuff from their mobile device using the Android Netflix client SPECIFICALLY while using SetDNS?
When I manually change my DNS entries on my Nexus4 to 188.8.131.52 / 184.108.40.206, (as an example, many US based DNS servers work), before launching my Android Netflix client I get to view US Netflix content on my Nexus4.
Of course running your Mobile device through full proxy service accomplishes the same thing but I prefer the SetDNS method so I don't have to route my video stream through the proxy itself. However If necessary, I use Hotspot Sheild for that.
Anyways, if some one wouldn't mind trying to queue up Netflix stuff from their android device and push it to their Chromecast Device while running SetDNS or Hotspot Sheild (or both I suppose) and let us know if you can push US Netflix content through your Chromecast Device it would be greatly appreciated.
I have tried:
- Connecting to HideIPVPN in the USA and trying to push US Netflix content to Chromecast. This resulted in an error message on the TV.
- Setting my router's DNS up with Unblock Us and pointing it to US Netflix, then trying to push US content. Again, error message on the TV. Unblock US has contacted me on Twitter about this and they're going to see if they can find a workaround.
I am quite certain that the Chromecast itself has to be redirected through to the US servers in order for the content to play properly, whether via DNS, proxy or VPN. There is also a possibility that Netflix on Chromecast ignores DNS completely and accesses the servers it wants to.
