I was lucky enough to snag the apk for netflix off of XDA before it stopped working and have had netflix on my xoom for about a week. But here is another way of doing it without the apk…let me know how this work if anyone else out there has a Xoom…
No this isn’t an Aprils Fools joke but something real. Earlier today while messing with the Xoom to see what it can do someone decided to play around with some remote desktop clients seeing how big the Xoom was. Why not try NetFlix? This is how they did it. As of now the video is choppy(May be my own internet connection). But It works completely with video and sound.
This was done on Windows 7 so yours may be different.
•Download Remote Desktop from the Android market
•Fully set that up so you can control your home computer
•I used Chrome, but launch NetFlix(Has a Chrome App)
•Sit back and enjoy watching
How to set up computer first:
•Start>Control Panel>System and Security>System>Remote Settings(On left side)
•Where it says “Remote Desktop” choice either the bottom one or the one above. The middle one is for if you plan on accessing it while not on same Wi-Fi connection as computer.
How to set up Remote Desktop via Wi-Fi:
•On home computer to get your IP address which will be the address on app you go Start>CMD(Type that in and press enter)
•Type ipconfig(You take your IP address which is the IPv4 Address
•Input that as the Address in the app
•Put your user name/password you have for computer
