Watching NetFlix Movies On Line

Reply Tue 2 Dec, 2008 08:38 am
I have been watching a lot of old TV shows for the last few months on line at Netflix. All of a sudden I can't anymore. When I try to watch a episode I haven't seen, I get the message below. Right now I have been watching old episodes of Quincy ME. I watched season one threw six with no problem. Starting with the last episode of season seven and all of season eight I get the message below. But if it is any episode that I had already watched, I am still able to view it again! What the HELL is going on with Netflix?

Why not do what the error message advises you to do?

Hmm, that is strange. I do have a couple ideas that may work, but I have never seen this error myself.

1. Try restarting the computer. I know, lame answer. But I'm thinking if the process the launched the other episodes gets hung up, then netflix will think you are currently watching one of the episodes you've already finished, and so won't let you start another one.

2. If that doesn't work, then make sure nothing has changed with your windows firewall, or antivirus software. When you watch something on netflix, it has to do a DRM check on your computer, so your computer sends information back to them. It sounds like somewhere along the way, this DRM response isn't getting back to their servers, so they won't stream the video.

Hopefully one of those works. It is strange that you were able to watch fine in the past, though, and now you can't (I'm assuming you haven't made any significant changes to your computer since then).

@Nick Ashley,
I called NetFlix and they took care of my problem! They switched me over to their new beta player, now everything works fine. Even the picture is clearer!
