    Anyone else have better luck?

    Same here. I just installed the "officially supported" Netflix app. I tried to play a movie on it (over WiFi) and simply gave me a green staticy screen for a second or two and then the phone rebooted.

    Oh that’s the new Netflix “HD” that the D3 supports. HarD reset.

    Surprised you weren't able to get that to work, Suntan.

    With all your expertise in physics and thermodynamics, I would have thought it would be easy for you.

    From reading the comments, it looks like the app is the wrong version #. Im sure they will update it shortly.

    Sorry for being obtuse!

    I was just teasing you. It was a fun poke at your somewhat silly post in the thread about the Droid 3 running warm, where you denounced armchair physicists for not understanding the thermodynamics of the Droid 3.

    In any case, I'm a little surprised that Netflix released such a buggy product. They seem to be very focused on having a stable client running on every platform possible. But, I don't there first releases on some of the game consoles had a way to go too. I have a PS3 which I almost never use, and I remember in the first generation of the Netflix client, it needed a DVD in the console to work. They they went through several iterations, increasing stability and features each time. I know it has been a wait, but I'm betting that Netflix is singing along on the Droid platforms before long. They'll probably be particularly invested in the Xoom, and similar products.

    I just updated to the "new, new" update they just put out and it works now. Not only does it work, but it works brilliantly. Over WiFi, the resolution was terrific. Motion and everything looked great. As I understand it, DRM material can't be mirrored over the HDMI connection. Does that mean that you can't stream a Netflix movie on the D3 and then mirror it to an HDTV? If that's so, that would be a shame, because this phone certainly has the horsepower for it.

    Right, well ha. Ha. Next time, please carry the (week old) grudge over to a PM as not to derail conversations that have nothing to do with your old posts.

    Back on topic, I updated to the “correct” version they intended to post earlier this morning and now Netflix runs fairly well. Although I would venture to say that it is not the “HD” version they have been discussing about for OMAP support. Even on a fast wifi connection the picture quality is decidedly non-HD.

    The stream I tried started out rather blocky at first (maybe for about 30 seconds or so), but then it became as clear as could be and I was pretty impressed with it... all over WiFi, of course.

    I can't figure out what's wrong with mine. The app loads, the video screen pops up but it won't advance past 0:00. I tries hitting pause/play a few times to kick start it, but to no avail. I dragged the time line forward, I get a buffering notification, then it just sits there again and won't start. (I'm on Wi-Fi).
    Any one else having this issue, or as usual is it just me?

    Works perfectly on wifes D3. Just installed it 5 minutes ago and watched Top Gear. Very cool. Can't wait to use it on Bionic when it releases.

    Just installed this app and it seems to be working great on wifi...and much better than I would have suspected on 3G.

    I agree, I was shocked at the quality on 3g!
