Android 10 DRM broken

Post by foxbat121 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 4:20 am

Just got official Android 10 upgrade on my Pixel 3. Decided to checkout the HDHR app compatibility. It is worse than I expected.
* DRM channels all crash the app immediately.
* Most H.264/AVC non-DRM channels got a full screen of green blobs.
* I still can't close the HDHR app using back button. This is an old existing issue and surprised SD didn't fix it for so long.

Can you please enable "send diagnostic information" in the Android app.

the app force closes for me after trying to open it. Google Pixel 3 on verizon, Android 10. on wifi home network. I sent feedback with log via the app.

Andoroid 10 is still in beta with many changes. From Dev site: System changes that may affect your app when it's running on Android 10. Privacy features - New safeguards to protect user privacy that you'll need to support in your app.

No, it officially released since 9/3. I don't run beta OSes.

Looks like it was released only on Google Pixel devices so far. Seems like Google is releasing OSes too often. There are millions of phones that will never get updates. i'm still on 6 and will never get an update.

There are about two dozen remotely-exploitable, root-level vulnerabilities that have come out since Android 6 stopped getting security updates, so I hope you're not using that phone for anything that you would consider the slightest bit confidential, like say online banking.

Wrong again, Pixels and Elements phones both got the new release.

Android 10 was released just this week on exactly two Google-owned phone models. OP reported the problem. SD asked for logs. They got them. Another user confirmed it is an issue. They're working on it the same day OP reported it.

No need for the d*ck-measuring and lecturing over who should upgrade their phones or somehow blaming SD for an imperfect app on a brand new OS for a very, very small population of their customers globally.

Did you send the crash report to Google or Send diagnostic information inside the HDHomeRun app?
