As we reported, Google Videos was originally available for Honeycomb powered tablets like the Motorola XOOM. Now available from the Android Market for those with handsets running Android 2.2 or higher, the Google Videos app allows you to rent a movie from thousands of thousands of titles available from the Android Market and stream them instantly on your phone. For those who choose not to stream or are in an area with no network connection, an offline mode can be used to view the videos. You can also arrange the settings within the app that allow you to set a default preference for downloading movies by Wi-Fi or mobile network while a Personal Videos section combines all of the videos that you have taken with your phone.

Before you decide to download this app, check the comments section in the Android Market. Those who have rooted their phone will not be able to install the app. And some who have installed it have had problems with YouTube. Other comment that the quality of rental movies was poor, even over Wi-Fi. If you have downloaded the Google Videos app, let us know your experience either good or bad by leaving a comment in the box below. It might also be helpful to others if you let us know what device you installed it on.

Let us have this at least. The U.S generally gets screwed when it comes to phones.

Google video app have a serious problem.
You can remove DRM. It is too easy.
Google video check rooted device but you can evade this. ( root -> install what you need to crack -> unroot )
Google video use a proxy based drm decrypter.
just dump your localhost packets. and remove http header data. you can get original MP4.
I wonder why google & widervine(DRM company) do this.
