There is no way to do this currently. I was trying to find an official statement about it, which I'm pretty sure exists since I remember reading about it a while ago, but it seems that the Netflix help has changed and it's hard to find what you are looking for. A simple search reveals a bunch of threads asking for this same feature.

The Netflix movie player (Silverlight version) implements at least the following keyboard shortcuts: Space – Toggle Play/Pause Enter – Toggle Play/Pause PgUp – Play PgDn – Pause F – Full-screen Esc – Exit full-screen In full-screen mode: Ctrl+Space – Fast-forward/rewind mode. Initially this key stroke pauses the movie to ...

Some movies have a "Play Trailer" button on the top right corner, under the "Play", "Add to Instant Queue", and "Add to DVD Queue" buttons. It's pretty hit or miss (mostly miss), so if there's no trailer button, you will have to search on YouTube, Google, or some other video search engine.

Very easily: Google Search: "[Movie] Preview" or "[Movie] Trailer" It's probably on YouTube.

If you're using Firefox (and maybe Chrome, now too) and have the Greasemonkey extension installed, there's a script that allows you to do a lot more organization with your queue: Netflix Queue Sorter for Greasemonkey

It depends on your technical capacity and amount of time that you're willing to invest. By the looks of it, netflix has a fairly rich api. So if you're willing to put the time in, you can probably script something up in a matter of a couple of hours (depending on ability...it might take only minutes if you're an expert, or days if not). Alternatively, you ...

heaven forbid he is watching MythBusters, he could learn something. As stated, you can't block individual shows. Just revoke the device, change your Netflix account password, and the issue should go away.

I went to the help page link that you posted, and there is a link for the live chat at the bottom of the screen:

I believe that they only support native languages. As far as I have been able to tell there is no alternate audio stream associated with the streaming videos.

There is no way of turning off these emails. The best you can do is set up a rule in your email client to filter them out and delete them if desired.

If I remember correctly, when you enable the Blu-ray option it will update the queue for you automatically.

There is no readily available way to update your Netflix DVD queue on the Netflix site, other than the available controls (add, remove, change order and change star ratings). However, using their API you could (conceivably) write a script that will manipulate your queue in any way you want. You can schedule it to run periodically to scan all the DVDs in ...

Has he tried VPN like hide my ass: http://vpnverge.com/truths-about-hidemyass/ or DNS service like smartyDNS?

Just drag the bottom edge of the current episode still playing to the bottom of the iPad screen, covering the "next episode playing in" area. The current episode will then keep playing until the end.

What I've been doing is simply click on the 'More Info' link, which you probably do already right?, and simply bookmark the address in a folder - 'NetFlix - Future' is mine. You can go back to it anytime and watch it or not.

I personally use the watchlist feature of trakt to mark movies and television shows that I want to watch. Original Answer This is what your Instant Queue is for: a list of movies you want to watch. Just click the + Instant Queue button for a movie, then see the list at http://movies.netflix.com/Queue.

The is no way to get what you want with their current tools, but these are some tips that could help you: Instead of pausing an episode, go back to the main menu. When you resume your show, it'll start playing from where you left. There will be no summary of anything. It's the same as pausing, but you won't see the pause screen. Just be weary of your mouse ...

What you are asking for is currently not possible. Netflix has no such options currently. As a way around you can install some third party extensions such as "Page Eraser" which can hide certain elements from certain sites from appearing on your screen.


1

No, because currently you can only add items to your Instant Queue if they're available for streaming. While anything in theaters now is virtually guaranteed to come out on DVD in a few months, the same can't be said for streaming. Unless and until Hollywood gets its act together and allows everything to be streamed, I expect the status quo to remain.

It could be one of a few things: Your friends account could be the 'email only' setup (If that is still available, I don't recall). The country/area where your friend resides/trying to play might not allow streaming. Silverlight might not be installed (or a linux OS that does not support Netflix). Should be one of those, otherwise have him contact ...

You could use the fine Mac program Audio Hijack Pro to amplify your entire system's volume while you watching Netflix, as described here.

It's been a couple years :) but in case anyone is wondering the (Western Digital) WD Live media now supports Netflix in Canada. It was buggy before, but it's good now. Not to mention it's a heck of a lot quieter (fan noise-wise) than most consoles. That's a plus for me.

SD streaming on Netflix seems to pull around 850 MB/Hour. This probably applies to all of the set-top-box Netflix clients including the Wii. DSL Reports post with hard data

Yes and no. There are some options available. If you're looking at a movie's description, you can see what "kind" of a movie/show it is (this is under This Movie Is:). You can't get anything closer to what you're asking for but I usually use that as a psuedofilter.

I've received comments about people using Netflix from outside US, using a VPN into some US-based host. Anyone have a good link about it? I dont know if a proxy is enough or you need a full tunnel. Also, dont know the legal status of this, even if you are a US citizen. iTunes on the other hand dont limit you to acces their content from abroad (they do not ...

You can use their streaming service from out of the country but if you are asking about DVD's by mail, I believe you are out of luck.
