Google Videos For Root Users
So, you have a rooted device like most of the members around here and would like to do more. With this in mind, XDA member motodroidfreak brings you a hacked version of Google Videos. This APK is a modified version of the com.google.android.videos-1.apk, which bypasses the root and tamper checks. This version will fix both the standalone version of Google Videos and the Market integrated version.
This bypass doesn’t affect the DRM licensing. As a matter of fact, it will still generate a proper license key and you will still be limited to the normal viewing times, and it should work on any Android device 2.2 and up.
Let the developer know your experience by leaving feedback.
