Did you search the many pages? search.php?keywords=netflix

What browser and what release of that browser are you using?

The first time you try to run Netfilix on Firefox, it will ask you for permission to download and use a library to play copy-protected streams. Are you missing that? It's sort of a yellow bar that runs along the top of the browser window.

The first place to check is in preferences for: Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content, is it enabled?

Also, make sure Netflix is not blocked in your country, since you didn't say where you are.

No replies yet, either, so apparently the Net is very slow there, too...
