Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Can you download the streamed movies from netflix?
    I'd like to record the streamed movies from netflix to my personal dvd player so i can watch on my home tv? Can I do that with netflix streamed movies? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      With the right software (or if u know how to write your own code) ANYTHING that is streamed to your computer can be captured.

      Just like with youtube and all those other sites, u can probably find software to capture items from netflix also.

  2. QUESTION:
    How do I watch a streamed Netflix movie on my Sanyo?
    I want to watch a Netflix movie that I have streamed to my laptop (I do not have DVD's from Netflix, so I can't use my DVD player) on my Sanyo 32" TV? The model number is DP32649. No other cables or anything came with the TV (specific to this request, anyway). Is there a way to do this if I only get streamed movies from Netflix?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, if you have a laptop with an HDMI output you connect it with an HDMI cable to the HDMI input of your TV (that model has 2 HDMI inputs). If you're fortunate enough to have Windows 7, it will automatically adjust your laptop's resolution to the maximum output for your TV set. Then your TV acts like a big 32" monitor for your laptop.

      If you don't have HDMI on the laptop, then there are other connections but they would depend on what kind of outputs you have on the laptop.

  3. QUESTION:
    What is better for internet usage, streaming or downloading?
    My ISP lately has been complaining of my large amount of internet usage, i do download movies however i do have netflix as well, will streaming movies off netflix use about the same amount of data as downloading the same movie in the same quality?

  4. QUESTION:
    Will a netbook allow me to watch netflix streaming movies?
    Can I watch netflix streaming movies and youtube on a netbook?

    Whats a good brand and model to buy?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can watch netflix and youtube on netbooks. The screen will be small but it's definitely a good function for those computers. Any netbook should have the requirements to run both: wireless internet card and Windows XP or higher.

  5. QUESTION:
    Why are netflix streaming movies so bad?
    Please excuse my language when I say this, but why are netflix streaming movies such crap? They have some decent tv show options and SOME good movies for their streaming option, but the VAST majority of them are pretty bad or unheard of and still bad.

    What is with this? Why even bother offering all these useless selections?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Because they have to pay for streaming rights, and the studios and distributors charge a premium for streaming new movies, if they even offer the rights at all. They prefer selling discs, not letting people stream. Netflix would have to quadruple their prices or even more to get new movies available for streaming. The fact that other vendors like Amazon, iTunes and Hulu have jumped in and started a bidding war has made the prices for streaming rights even higher. Eventually the prices will drop and the selection will improve, but that's probably still several years away.

  6. QUESTION:
    What causes the audio to be a little behind the video?
    I've seen it for a long time downloading movies, but i've been streaming movies from netflix on my ps3 and some of them do it too. Just now i was channel surfing and stopped on Bravo cuz i saw 40 year old virgin was on, and it's doing the same thing. Just wondered what exactly was going on there.
    and no, i'm not over 100 feet from the tv

  8. QUESTION:
    How do you save Netflix streaming movies to a hard disk to watch later?
    Netflix is like playing games. One day they have a movie up then it's gone. The selection sucks and stuff. I just want to save a streaming movie to watch later when I dont have Internet access.

    What's the programs to use?

    • ANSWER:
      Netflix spends a great deal of effort and money on DRM. There have been hacks in the past. They are complicated and tedious and not one simple program. They are not difficult to find by searching. Just be aware that if you are caught, account suspension and guaranteed and they could take it furthe

  9. QUESTION:
    can i stream multiple movies from netflix with the unlimited streaming plan ?
    I used to be able to stream multiple movies from netflix into my home, one for the tv, and one for the laptop. Now, thought it is telling me I cannot do that... I'm a little confused and irritated. Doesn't it mean I can stream multiple movies to my home using the unlimited streaming plan?

    • ANSWER:

      Q:
      Can I watch movies instantly on more than one PC or Netflix-ready device?
      A:
      Some membership plans allow you to watch simultaneously on more than one personal computer or Netflix-ready device. If you are on the Unlimited Streaming plan, the Unlimited Streaming + 1 DVD out-at-a-time plan or a limited streaming plan, you may watch only one device at a time.

      If you are on the Unlimited Streaming + 2 DVDs out-at-a-time plan, you may watch on up to two devices at a time. Members on the Unlimited Streaming + 3 DVDs out-at-a-time plan may watch on up to three devices at a time. The maximum is four devices at a time -- available for members on the Unlimited Streaming + 4-or greater DVDs out-at-a-time plan.

  10. QUESTION:
    How many gigabytes is an online movie?
    I am wondering if anyone knows how many gigabytes are transferred when you watch an online streaming movie from Netflix.

    I have Comcast and am worried about hitting their stupid limits if I say watch one movie a day or something like that.

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on if you watch HD or regular.

      Check this site out to see how big movie files are: http://www.grabaid.com

      If you are worried about hitting limits, download movies from them, but do not select the HD ones. When not HD, the movies is generally about 1/5 of the size. (800MB)

      I have Comcast too and watch about a movie a day from this site, but rarely HD. I also have my phone through the net, and my wife is also online with her computer. So far we have never hit any limits.
      Enjoy.

  11. QUESTION:
    Does Anyone Have a Problem Streaming Certain Netflix Movies on The PS3?
    Every so often when I go to stream a movie via Netflix on my PS3, they wont play and restart the Netflix disc or they will start playing, stop, try to reload and freeze. Anyone else have this issue. Netflix was clueless and they said they need to try to recreate the issue.

    • ANSWER:
      I always have this problem. I had them send me a 2nd Netflix Streaming disc and I thought that was it. But it wasn't, the Streaming on the PS3 just sucks a lot. On the 360 or PC it's wayyyyyyyyyyy better. It doesn't take soooooo long to load and doesn't have this failure rate. On the PC the quality is much better as well. So in my bedroom I have my PC interact with my TV and watch that way. I have my PS3 in the living room so I can watch movies there, but it keeps freezing on me constantly, so it's not you. It also doesn't appear again when I turn the Ps3 on. It's very frustrating. I can't wait to see how this is going to work on the Wii.

  12. QUESTION:
    whats the difference between a notebook and a laptop?
    My laptop died pretty much from a virus and I am wondering what the difference is between a notebook and a laptop? I only use my laptop for streaming movies from netflix while I am at work. Which is the best route to go? Laptop or Notebook?

    • ANSWER:
      notebook and laptop are the same thing

  13. QUESTION:
    When you stream movies from netflix on an xbox can you also rent DVD's?
    My sister has a netflix account and i'm thinking about trying to get the account information to stream movie's and TV shows onto my Xbox. Problem is she won't go for it if she cant still rent movies and do everything with netflix she currently does.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you get both depending on what plan you want, i'm on the rent 2 dvd's at a time unlimited plan, which means i stream as many movies as a want online and on xbox and get 2 in the mail at a time. There's different plans based on what you would like to do as well :)

  14. QUESTION:
    What is the best laptop to get?
    I am going to get a new laptop and computers are not really my forte. I know that what I really want is a laptop that can browse internet pages very fast, and, is really great for streaming movies (netflix) or downloading football film for school. I also will need it for school work, mainly, writing papers, creating powerpoints, and, taking notes.

    My price range is probably around 1500$ no more.

    I am aware that mac's are generally known for that, but, I have never really liked macs as a lot of things are more complicated with them, like word, downloads, installs or stuff like that. Also, I am used to the PC.

    I dont like Dell really at all, but heard Alienware is a lot better then a regular Dell laptop. It also looks cooler then any laptop I've ever seen. It has all of these graphics and things that are for gaming; would they also increase movie graphics and such too? Can they browse fast? Honestly the only games i'd play on my laptop would be the occasional League of Legends and thats it so I doubt this is the lap top i'd want.

    I also know HP is cheaper then both of them really. Thats all I know about that though.

    Portability would be a must too. Mainly I am looking for a laptop that searches the internet fast and can stream movies in high quality. My current Dell (which is practically dead) loads movies very slowly and blurry. In addition to that one that would be easy to use for my classes and might possibly have even a student loan on it.

  20. QUESTION:
    When I try to stream Netflix movies on my wii I get an error that there is not enough memory. Any suggestions?
    I just got a Netflix account to stream movies. I have an Xbox 360 but it requires a Gold membership so I tried it on my Wii and it tells me that there is not enough memory. Even with an added card or different movies I get the same error. The movies are not HD. Any suggestions? Have you encountered this and solved it?

    • ANSWER:
      You might have a lot of games installed on your wii that are taking up space. The old nes games that you can buy from virtual console, etc. Those take-up space. Either delete those games off or try finding an sd card with most space possible on it. Put that sd card in your wii and try again. You may want to check your manual to see if wii has limitations on the highest sd card you can put in it.

  22. QUESTION:
    How do you stream Netflix movies on Playstation 3?
    I have a Playstation 3, but seeing Netflix's new move to allow Xbox 360 to stream movies to it, I'm really envying those Xbox 360 users. My question is, is there any way you can watch movies on PS3. I have a monthly subscription to Netflix, broadband connection, wireless router, a PS3, PC and the TV. Someone please make it work! Thanks!
    I know it isn't supported, but is there a way to work around it?

    • ANSWER:
      Ignore those other "Answers"

      The real answer to this question is:

      YES you can stream Netflix through your PS3 and it works just as well as the 360 or that cheap Roku box.

      Go to:
      http://www.themediamall.com/playon

      The PlayOn media app allows you to stream content from Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, CBS, ESPN, and CNN through your PS3 by utilitizing your computer as a media server which is supported by most next gen consoles. The only requirements are a computer, an internet connection, and that the computer & PS3 are connected to the same network.

      Also, don't buy a Roku player. They have horrible resolution, playback problems, and you can only change the queue from the internet.

      :: UPDATE ::
      I installed PlayOn on a computer that connects to the same router / hub as my PS3, entered my Netflix password in the PlayOn program on my computer, and connected to the PlayOn server after it appeared under the video options on my PS3. It works great (connects directly to your netflix online queue) and also gives you access to news outlets and other media streams such as youtube. Great program.

      This is definitely the answer to your question.

  23. QUESTION:
    Where can I download the Netflix app to stream movies for Sprint HTC EVO Shift 4G phone?
    The Netflix app to stream movies on the Evo Shift 4G from Sprint. I checked the Android Market, and it does not show an official Netflix app, just third party apps.

    • ANSWER:
      It looks as if the App works for the HTC-Evo only and not the Evo-Shift. Rumors are that they are working on it for the shift. It does beg the question as to why the evo and not the shift, but there are quite a few out there who are expecting it soon.

  25. QUESTION:
    How do I stream Netflix movies from my HTC Evo 4G to my TV?
    How do I stream Netflix movies from my HTC Evo 4G to my TV? I want to stream Netflix movies from my Evo to my TV. So I bought an HDMI cable that plugs into the HDMI port on my Evo, but the other end of the cable has a USB plug, which I didn't expect. Anyway, my RCA-brand TV which is 3 years old (2009), has a couple of USB ports, so I plugged the cable into one. But how do I get the movie to play? Is this the right kind of HDMI cable?

    • ANSWER:
      No, that is a USB, or possibly an MHL cable for certain newer TVs that support MHL.

      Your TV is pre MHL, and a minor brand, so needs a regular HDMI cable.

  28. QUESTION:
    Why most good movies in Netflix are only available in DVD?
    I have an account with Netflix for streaming movies on my PC or TV. I'm very happy with the service, but why most of the good movies I'd like to see are only available in DVD? I'd like to ask Netflix but there's no options available for questions in their web site.

    • ANSWER:
      Not every movie and TV show is available for Instant Streaming. Netflix has to buy the rights to stream the movies and TV shows they have and can't just play everything. They could be sued for copyright infringement and other things if they did.

      Sorry:(

    Can I connect an HDMI cable from my computer to Blue Ray Netflix ready player.?
    I want to start streaming movies from netflix. My HDTV is 12 ft. from Computer. A direct cable would eliminate need for WI FI.

    • ANSWER:
      Normally you would connect the Blu Ray player to the TV with HDMI or you would connect the computer to the TV with HDMI.

      The Wi-Fi (or a wired Ethernet) connection will still be needed to stream the movies from the Internet. If you want to use the computer as a Wi-Fi adapter for the Blu Ray player, you can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) assuming your computer runs on Windows. But your best bet, if you need Wi-Fi is to buy a Wi-Fi adapter for the BR player or and HDMI adapter for the computer.

  31. QUESTION:
    How do I stream Netflix movies from my HTC Evo 4G to my TV?
    I want to stream Netflix movies from my Evo to my TV. So I bought an HDMI cable that plugs into the HDMI port on my Evo, but the other end of the cable has a USB plug, which I didn't expect. Anyway, my RCA-brand TV which is 3 years old (2009), has a couple of USB ports, so I plugged the cable into one. But how do I get the movie to play? Is this the right kind of HDMI cable?

    • ANSWER:
      Netflix does not natively support TV out on Android phones. If you want to try anyway you need a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable and the RealHDMI app. This app is only known to work for the Droid X but you can give it a try. The USB port on your TV will not allow for video streaming. It might allow for photo viewing or firmware updating.

  32. QUESTION:
    What speed of internet would I need for Netflix?
    Our apartment has internet that we have been using, but it's very unreliable. We are just going to get our own internet, what speed do you think we would need to stream instant movies with Netflix?

    • ANSWER:
      Depends a bit on what resolution you'll be streaming at, but I'd say at the very least 10 Mbps, preferably more.

      Speed isn't the only factor, however. Latency (lag) also plays a large part, but I think the biggest problem today is data caps. ISPs don't seem to understand that "Web 2.0" and data caps can't coexist without ugly consequences. Look for unlimited data; it may be hard or impossible (or stupidly expensive) to find in some areas, so if this is the case then you're just better off with rentals from a brick-and-mortar store.

    How is my netflix stream on my cpu constantly freezing/making weird noises?

It will just freeze and make weird noises like satan is talking, crazy. You can wait for like 2-3 minutes and it will play again, but then do it all again shortly. Not sure what to do, its bullshizzle

    • ANSWER:
      What kind of internet connection do you have? Because it's streaming, the speed of your internet can easily affect how well it plays.

      However, Netflix is kind of buggy. I've had issues on all my devices with it (tablet, PC, TV), and my boyfriend's often freezes, even though he has a different service provider.

      Here's how to test internet speed. (Not sure how tech savvy you are.)

    If i upgraded my 1.5 mb connection to 6 mb connection will my Netflix quality be better?
    On Xbox i stream movies from netflix and i usually get 2 bar quality. But i looked into my at&t connection and saw i had a 1.5 mb connect -.- so i upgraded to 6 mb will my quality be better? If so how many bars should i get now?

    • ANSWER:
      the buffer rates vary based on these factors.
      the connection speed plus the components ability to read.
      so uploads and down loads are based on both.
      if you connection is fast but your Xbox is slow. or defective then you will get the same no matter what.
      if your Xbox is fine and your connection is slow it will be the same unless you change the connection ..
      So to answer your question is based on these examples.
      yes if your Xbox is matching the quality required to run at the new speeds if not then the speed was fine and your wasting your money on connection speed improvement and should just get an upgrade to your Xbox. (internet card on your Xbox) Processor R/W rate.

  41. QUESTION:
    why does Netflix only stream certain movies and tv shows?
    I was really excited at the idea of streaming movies and TV shows until i saw how limited the selection is. Almost everything i wanted to watch was DVD only. Why does Netflix do this? Wouldn't it be a lot more effective to charge a little extra for the plan and upload all of them? Will there ever be a time when everything on Netflix will be streamable?

    • ANSWER:
      Netflix does this, probably because, they dont want to overload their servers. For example, a recent movie may be way too much in demand, and their current servers and technology may be inefficient to handle heavy number of requests. I guess, they are still young as a company, in terms of revenue. If they earn a lot, they can have many more servers, and related technology. There by, allowing streaming to even movies on high demand.
      There could be other reasons. But this one strikes to me.
      Regarding future,
      I hope so. If people who think like you and me exist more, obviously there will be more demand and where there is demand, there is a better product with better technology! But, it might take a while...at least a couple of years, according to me.

  49. QUESTION:
    Why should Netflix movies keep freezing on my computer?
    This just started tonight. I tried restarting my computer and downloading the latest Silverlight software, but it's still happening. I use Safari as my browser (on a MacBook Pro).

    Any ideas as to what the problem might be? I realize Silverlight (which Netflix streamed movies have always run on my machine) is a Microsoft product, but there's never been a problem in the past year. Thanks if you have any ideas.

    • ANSWER:
      This may be a result of a slow internet connection. Try going to Youtube to see if those videos have the same problem. If it is a slow internet connection, there is not much to be done. Make sure that you do not have other internet-dependent programs running at the same time. Last of all, try Google Chrome; it is usually faster and more efficient with video.

      Hope this helps.

  50. QUESTION:
    Streaming Movies to my TV from my computer?
    I was wondering what type of device I need and how I can stream movies that I download on my computer to my TV. I am familiar with Netflix streaming, but that is not what I was wanting to do. Basically I want to eliminate DVD's and store the movies on my computers hard drive that way. Any help would be appreciated
    I saw a commercial about Samsung's Media Connect. Am I on the right track with that device?

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on your tv and computer. Assuming it is a HD tv (one with a HDMI input). ATI has video cards that output HDMI, as well as many laptops. There are other connection options but that should be the one with the fewest problems.

      Storing DVD's on your HD is not a straight forward process as they are normally copy protected.
