AltBalaji App Problem Fixed

On December 17th,2017, I documented video playback problem of AltBalaji app on my iPad Pro  in my blog. You can read it here.

I sent my feedback with screenshots to the Balaji Support Team. They responded very quickly and fixed the video playback problem by updating the app. My problematic version for iOS was 1.5.7. Now this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.8.


AltBalaji App Problem

Alt Balaji offer original, exclusive and premium shows,movies. Everything you want to watch, anytime, anywhere and as much. The subscription rate is also very minimum. Yesterday I paid and watched a show series on my desktop. The audio and video qualities are excellent. The video streaming is also fine and smooth, no buffering at all. The settings and interface are very simple and friendly.

But the problem started when I downloaded altbalaji app from app stores on iOS for my ipad Pro.

It can play only a few movies there and unfortunately cannot play most of the movies. It doesn’t show any error messages. Just shows the altbalaji logoalt when starting playing then immediately it stops.

My iOS software is most updated. I have already sent my feedback to altbalaji support team and waiting for their response.

Netflix is not working after upgrading to Windows 8.1 Preview


Installed 8.1 preview on my htpc now the netflix plugin for Media Center will not stream any video; a browser compatibility page pops up listing requirements. It worked fine before this.It gives the following error:

“Instant Watching System Compatibility To watch instantly, you’ll need a computer that meets the following minimum requirements: Windows, Windows Vista or Windows 7, Internet Explorer 8 or higher; or the latest version of Firefox; or the latest version of Chrome”


This is a known issue.Reinstalling the netflix plugin is not solving the issue.This needs to be fixed by Netflix as well as Microsoft.

Fortunately Netflix has started working on this issue:-“we’re excited to announce that we’ve been working closely with Microsoft to implement these extensions in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1.  If you install the Windows 8.1 Preview from Microsoft, you can visit today in Internet Explorer 11 and watch your favorite movies and TV shows using HTML5!”
