Many android devices are obtaining larger screens And higher pixel counts and my phone (Samsung galaxy s2) is capable of 480p video of course only for those who have premium membership, however please only make it somewhere in the settings so that those with slower internet don't have to feel the pain of lag and buffer as well or perhaps another idea because going into the browser, still has my notifications bar at the top sometimes ruining subtitles that are put on the top for several reasons

BasouKazuma has said that they won't be able to offer higher quality videos until they update the app for Honey Comb (And now Ice Cream Sandwich)

Froyo and Gingerbread do not support secure drm streaming, and the content providers will only allow low quality video to be sent to devices that do not have DRM security. It's the same problem with Netflix. Netflix will not offer HD streaming on Froyo or Gingerbread devices, but will offer it on Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich devices. Since Ice Cream Sandwich was just announced, it will be a while until there are phones running it other than the new Nexus phone. So CR will probably not update the app for Ice Cream Sandwich for a while either because of that.

iPhone and iPad videos are of higher quality because iOS supports html5 secure streaming, which pleases the content providers.



So basically, unless you have a phone running Ice Cream sandwich you won't be able to watch the higher quality video streams when CR updates their app for ICS.
