Netflix won't stream instant queue

I started another thread with the same issue but it seems to have died. Netflix basically won't start playing any movie from my instant queue, it just hangs after you select the movie....anyone else? any update?

    Working here. Does Netflix streaming work in Safari for you?

    Netflix streaming not working anywhere vs. not working in Plex only would require different troubleshooting...

    figured it out, silverlight wasn't installed properly. for those having problems, trying streaming from safari first, odds are if silverlight isn't installed properly and it doesn't play that's your culprit.

    That didn't work for me. I can stream in Safari and in Boxee without any issues. This has worked before, was broken, and then worked again for a while, and now is broken again. I'll be happy to provide any additional information to the developer since it easily reproducible.

    This worked for me. I think it's a cache/cookie issue.

    I got an email from Netflix asking if I had recently had problems streaming movies. They provided a link to offer some sort of credit on my next bill. So they must have been aware of some issues.

    I see different issues with this today. FIrst it went to the blue Silverlight swirly thing then went to a Red Netflix Screen (the one you usually see stating 'acquiring content license' but nothing else. Anyone else got this to work yet ?
