I currently have Ubuntu 12.10 and have Netflix on it and it works great btw!! What I'm wondering is if I upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu, is it going to effect my Netflix working properly or do I need to make some changes like reinstalling or updating? I only added the Netflix app about a month ago so I think it should be fairly up to date.
I have been using Netflix for sometime now. Before I got this new computer I was using a 32bit operating system and I was able to get Netflix to run on it with ease, though not at 100% like it did on Windows. Since I am now using a 64bit OS, for some reason I am having a lot of trouble getting Netflix to work. So I just had enough. I could eventually get it to work but I was getting tired of it.
Okay. I finally actually installed Ubuntu 14.04 alongside XP on my laptop yesterday. It's bumpier than I expected (the real install of Ubuntu is different from the test version), but I'm working through it.
Tonight I learned that Netflix Instant Movies blocks Linux systems.
I used to use the netflix on daily basis until about three weeks ago I started to get the following message after a long time displaying the netflix splash screen on my TV: "Humm... It seems we're unable to connect". And then the netflix closes after 10 seconds. Every other chromecast official app works good, but Netflix.
Whether I locate Netflix from the dock, or if I type its name in overlay mode, or whatever, the icon is gone. Netflix launches just fine, but it's just irritating because it's not supposed to be like that.
I have uninstalled and re-installed Netflix to no avail.
