    Every once in a while Netflix won't connect but after a reboot it works just fine.

    Netflix is doing something strange, it connects just fine, but my previously watched content generally does not load and the reload button only works every once in a while.

    I had to clear cache and data, but then it worked fine. Prior to that, it said it couldn't connect to the Netflix service.

    There's now a workaround for Flash on Dolphin.

    I ran kitkat long enough to only see negatives, no real obvious improvements but total loss of flash so I used wugfresh to revert back to jelly bean.

    FWIW, Netflix didn't work for me out of the box, but after upgrading to 4.4, and re-installing Netflix, it works just fine. I had previously gotten the Error 150001 that others have encountered as well.

    Netflix works arguably better on 4.4 for me

    Have only just gotten my nexus 10, its running KitKat, I installed Netflix and went to watch it and every now and then it Judders? Surely its powerful enough to run it? My iPad 2 runs it perfectly, no issues at all. What's going on?

    Power is not the problem I ran Netflix on ice cream sandwich with 512mb of ram before my nexus 7 2013 lol. It might be poor hardware support or bad Internet connection.

    I switched my runtime from dalvik to ART and can Confirm not only does Netflix work great it now opens almost instantly

    Are you running 4.4, 4.4.1, or 4.4.2?

    You could also go Into developer settings in your menu and switch the dalvik runtime to ART I've switched and let my apps work great and load faster than ever

    Sorry, forgot to ask but what is the difference between the runtimes? Sorry but I am a bit new to the android thing being an apple boy for a long time.
