Netflix WORKS on the Optimus V!!!!
Great news. I'm not sure if its been posted yet but Netflix works on our Optimus V! All you have to do is edit your build.prop to one of the supported phones, reboot and run the app. Works perfectly, FLASH NOT REQUIRED!
It worked on my Nook Color, so I figured what the hell.
I have a video of it running if anyone doesn't buy just the post.

I believe the APK is available on XDA.
As for the Build.prop...
MAKE A COPY AND KEEP IT SAFE!!!!!
Edit with root explorer
Change the following...
a couple spaces down you'll see
save and reboot.
I REPEAT!!!!! KEEP THE ORIGINAL Build.Prop.

Actually I got the APK from my Nexus One which runs Netflix legit. I just read somewhere that the APK was available on XDA.
All this is is editing the build.prop. It isn't a hack by any means. we'll have to wait for someone with skills to get a modded version of the APK for our phones. But at least it works this way and we now know Flash isn't required.
Heres the vid.

Some apps on your phone may not run using an edited build prop. Swype is one of those apps.
Thats why I say to copy your original Build.prop.
I rename the original to build.prop.orig and the edited to build.prop.
When done with Netflix I can just rename the original back to build.prop and the edited to build.prop.net and everything is back to normal.
Yeah, it can be annoying but remember this is just a workaround until someone hooks us up with a "fixed" APK.

I cannot get streaming to work. Everything else works, but once I start to stream, I get an error message saying this phone is not supported yet, got to the website for a list of supported phones.

Running the latest Harmonia don't know if stage fright is enabled or not. I actually think it is simply my phone dying. It had been running great since I bought it (day before official release) but about a week ago it started overheating anytime I had a phone call. It didn't matter if it was 1min or 1 hour it would heat up fast and the phone would stay laggy/frozen until a reboot.
Will probably try other roms just to see be sure, but I think it's my specific phone. And yes it happens on all of them.

I'll probably just wait until someone also running Harmonia takes the plunge and see if they have the bar too.
