<**************** Netflix-Rotation-Color ****************>

The stock app will only allow you to browse in portrait and stream in Landscape. This app is for those of us who do not want to be limited to only these two views. This app will now allow for the screen to automatically rotate when you rotate your phone. Now you can browse in landscape and stream in portrait [if you want...]
The attached files are modified versions of the stock market V1.4.1
I have edited some xml files to allow screen rotation while browsing or streaming.
I have also altered the loading screens to GREEN, ORANGE, PINK, BLACK, BLUE, and the original Netflix RED.
The icons are created by me and correspond to the color of the loading screens. Nothing else has been touched.

If one of these apps will not install, try clearing data and uninstalling your previous app first. This should fix it.

Sound is *way* ahead of the picture, but the sound is smooth (picture is losing frames).

HTC Inspire 4G
2.6.32.39-cyanogenmod-g99f1050

But maybe that's because my max CPU frequency is 384MHz.

I'll try it again at 1017MHz and let you know how it goes.

Yes let me know. Nothing to do with video was modified. Try the stock app also.

Greatest. Thing. Ever.

Ohhh, yeah... that's the ticket.

Greatest. Thing. Ever.

Yours was the first app to really work for me, and I tried about 4 different versions (none were yours, however). This afternoon, I was at a 245/768 min/max CPU setting, and would get audio but no video at all, with those earlier apps.

I guess I could retry a 'stock' one, but this is working, so why would I break it? Looks as great as one should expect on a 480x800 screen, too.

Nice, straightforward work from someone who knows his stuff. Awesome!

Now I just need to play with the CPU frequencies so I can get good video AND battery life...

Ok. Dumb question. What does rotation enabled do?

When I play something on the market app, it turns landscape when the show starts.

What does this do differently?

I need to get saltier with the CyanogenMod CPU settings. "POWERSAVE" governor and 768MHz gives an acceptable picture with some frameloss, so I need to just figure out what will still conserve power when I'm wearing the phone, but kick it up reasonably high when I'm Netflixing/Youtubing/DOSBOXing.

I also have yet to try it on 3/4G. Right now it's connected to cable through my WiFi (but I do plan to use WiFi most often so I don't run up a massive mobile data bill).

The stock app will only allow you to browse in portrait and stream in Landscape. This app is for those of us who do not want to be limited to only these two views. This app will now allow for the screen to automatically rotate when you rotate your phone. Now you can browse in landscape and stream in portrait [if you want...]

Oh, surprised that's a big deal to people.

Does the rotation work by your system auto rotate setting or does the app read the accelerometer itself?

Yes I did that for one reason only. Still the same error.

From what I can tell it has to do with the autmation.html, the text.js and the nrdp.js files. The automation is looking in the nrdp file for what the device is, and it is returning undefined. I have been looking around but nothing is staring me in the face as to how it can be resolved.

I run the script on my computer and get the same error. I will keep looking though.

The modification tells the app to read the accelerometer, opposed to being a hard-coded "landscape" and "portrait". It is a simple edit of some .xml files but it does the trick.

I believe IF the rotate settings are turned OFF in system settings the app will respond accordingly, I have not tested.

Edit: It is mainly for browsing in landscape (most useful on tablets), but I changed the streaming option too. I may enable rotation in browsing alone and leave streaming to fixed landscape. For those who are annoyed by the rotation.

It allows you to rotate the app. I particularly enjoy the 270 degree rotation when I'm watching a movie with my phone charging.

Edit: I should have checked for updates before replying. I didn't see all the other replies to the question.
