    Default Netflix and chromebook?

    Just got Nexus 7 (8G) yesterday and am puzzled.
    If I open Netflix by clicking on its icon (the app), then login, I can play shows on the Nexus 7. (I am paying the monthly membership).
    But if I logon using my password program (LastPass) and try to play same video, I get a window telling what specs needed - the main one for me being Chromebook or Chromebox. (no app listed for this one).
    I was going to download the Chromebook app but am wondering if this will solve the problem mentioned above.
    Anyone had this problem?

    I am a bit confused about lastpass and using Chromebook app.

    Are you using chromebook laptop to look for Nextflix app?

    I'm not even sure if Chromebook is on my Nexus 7.
    Chromebook is an app that apparently enables me to run videos on Netflix.

    Chromebook isn't an app. It's a category of devices that are basically barebones laptops running a special OS, essentially running everything in a browser. Sounds like there's some issue with LastPass.

    Can you expand on what you did, and under what conditions it worked & didn't work? What is referencing "chromebook"? LastPass?

    Found the source of the confusion - Chromebook is irrelevant to you. It's a laptop that runs ChromeOS. Not a tablet running Android (which is what you have).

    I know little about LastPass, but you need to look for an app for Android, not Chromebook.

    LastPass has its own browser as part of the install and sounds like it doesn't support the Netflix video format. Love me some LastPass for password management but haven't used the browser unless I need to auto load to a website.

    After playing with things more on my new Nexus 7, got everything straightened out.
    Thanks.
