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.

Initially this key stroke pauses the movie to ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
