So I installed Cloud Ready on an old Netbook and I am very impressed. it uses much less CPU resources when streaming video content than even the lightest Linux distro I could find. So far so good. However it have the same issue as all other Linux distros, that it cannot stream HBO web shows (GO/NOW/Nordic). So how come that it DOES work on the real ChromeOS?? I know because I have seen it working on a true ChromOS system and we can watch HBO.
I also have a Linux PC where it doesnt work - same issue that when a show is started you just get a blank screen. And dont even bother with all the `did you try this and did you try that` questions - of course I did!! - You try if you dont believe me... And yes I can stream Netflix and Amazon Prime and Youtube and other streaming services OK and my extensions/plugins are up to date. It does NOT work with HBO no matter what, but it does work on the real ChromeOS, so ChromeOS includes some kind of work around that makes it work that Cloud Ready does not have. I would encourage you to figure it out.
