    Hi, congratulation with the update! I love the os and that it enables me to use my laptop from 2007 still -it's so speedy it's unbelivable! Anyone still unsure after this post (as I was), you also need to install the codecs plugin to get netflix working. Not sure if flash is also required. Tried at first with only winevide installet, but now its working and I've all of them installed :)

    Netflix almost certainly uses proprietary media codecs like h.264 for streaming

    Netflix works perfect, but streaming quality is not 1080.

    Hi. I live in Sweden and I just installed CloudReady (Version 58.0.3029.109) on a very slow Acer Aspire 4820TG and it's very fast again, but I can't get Netflix to work. I reinstalled Widevine Content Decryption Module as well as Proprietary Codecs and Adobe Flash, but it didn't help. I don't have any agent switcher (even though I tried to use it and then uninstalled it). I have rebooted several times. Do you have any solution that might work?

    v58 is still on the dev channel and seems to have some media-playback issues we're still working out - v57.2 should have no issues, so switch to that (reinstall) for now if you need Netflix.

    Ok, thank you. Where do I find the older version?

    But isn't that the same version as I downloaded yesterday? Is it just the Proprietary Codecs that is version 58.1 while the CloudReady is version 57.2? Can I in that case just install an older version of the Proprietary Codecs - and from where?

    Switching from stable channel to dev channel is how you got to v58 . v57.2 is stable and doesn't have this issue, but v58 (which you updated to because you were on dev channel) still has some things to be worked out - the dev channel is specifically for unstable testing.

    Reinstalled and now everything is working just fine. Thank you very much!

    Hey!  I just installed CloudReady yesterday by making a bootable usb through your Windows program and when I go to Netflix it gives me error code C7121-1331-P7.  I have all of the media plugins installed and it still gives me the error code.  When I go to "about Chromium OS" in settings, it says I have version 57.0.2987.154 and platform 57.2.17 (Developer Build - neverware) developer-build chromeover64.  I suspect the "developer build" part has something to do with it, but I don't know how to fix it.  Could you please help me? Thanks!

    I installed Chromium in my old notebook 1 year ago with great results. When I did the installment I logon to Netflix using the user-agent extension.

    This week I deleted all the navigation data in Google Chrome, so I lose the logon to Netflix and I couldn't login again.

    I try reinstalling Widevine and Propietary Codecs, and I even try reinstalling user-agent, even knowing that supposselly it's not necessary.

    I don't receive any message error in the Netflix, it just recharges over and over the login page.

    Can you help me with this issue??

    Thanks

    HI all,

     

    First, please make sure you're on on v59.3 

     

    Next, once you're confident widevine is installed (check in settings menu) reboot your computer once to be sure the install is finalized. Now try playing Netflix again.

     

    Do you see an error message? 

    Do you see an infinite-load icon? When does that appear?

    Hi Forrest, thanks for your response,

    I am on V59 and I already tried rebooting.

    I don't see an error message, when I complete the user and password and hit access, the sign-in page reloads, it's just stuck there.

    I appreciatte any idea you may have.

    Try logging in to guest mode to see if the same thing happens?

     

    Just to confirm, you get stuck after signing in, but before ever attempting to play a specific video?

    I never leave the sign-in page. I put the data to access but when I hit access it just reload the same web page, with no error message.

    I will try the guest mode and let you know.
    Thanks

    Hi Forrest, I tried logging in from from the guest mode with the same results, I can't pass the user/password page.
    I'm sure that the problem is with chromium because I tried login in my smartphone web browser and it worked fine.

    I appreciate any ideas you may have.
    Codecs maybe?

    Thanks

    Hi, just to clear it out. I solved my Netflix login problem.

    It just needed to deleted all the cookies and with that Netflix login worked again.

    Thanks.
