I got Netflix sorta working... Using the official Android Market Build, and after changing the /system/build.prop as documented and then rebooting I was able to play one video (only let it run a minute or so) The next time I launched Netflix it didn't give me an error but just displayed a black screen.

Not sure if is working consistantly for anyone yet or not.


Speaking of video, what is the best current ROM for fast video playback? I am running Customized Nookie Froyo eMMC 0.6.8 3/18 build and it seems to be pretty rock solid with everything but occasional wifi issues after waking from sleep. However the video playback seems pretty slow, including some stuff I transcoded for the Nook, netflix, etc. Can the Nook color do decent video playback using a different ROM?

I would think CM7 stable or Phiremod with overclock kernel would give the best video. I know they tweaked the OC kernels for best video. You don't need to overclock to get good video tho.

I've had hulu running, it worked ok but the settings to make it work have to be reset with each reboot. Netflix seems to work pretty good.

Can you just download the Netflix app from the market? How do I find the prop build stuff to alter?

I don't know how Market works using a prop.build that identifies you as using a different phone/tablet.

It might fix one thing and break another.

My preference is to stay away from that.

I used the Android Central method posted by 1JOD. Works great!

I just rooted my Droid and set up wifi tethering. I am pretty much set now.

Netflix released an update turning off the pointless Device check, and as far as I know is available for everyone running 2.2+ on the market. Works great on my NC (running Phiremod).

Not that I am aware....

But CRACKLE is working fairly well.... It offers TV shows and Movies for free now as it use to be like 5 bucks a month.

I have it installed and it is very watchable... Just don't freak at the quality of the opening commercial.... is is so low rez, it's unwatchable... But the content runs well... Not as smooth as Netflix, but not bad.

You should be able to now just get it from the market.

That's what I did and it runs perfectly.

Users of the latest .32 kernels have an issue where the movie pays back double time, known as the chipmunk voices. We still need to edit the build.prop.

For anyone having difficulty getting Hulu to work on their NC, try these instructions. They're really easy to follow and worked flawlessly for me: How to Stream Hulu on the Nook Color and Other Android Devices - Android Forums

this thread is pretty old but ill ask anyway. i want to get netflix on my rooted nook color running cm10. i watched the video link a few posts above. got the new netxlix app. signed in and started SOA show to test. when it starts the whole screen is white snow. but in the top left corner there a small window thats playing the movie. its a lil choppy but its playing. i never saw anything mentioned about what the issues are with netflix on the nook. so will adding lines of code fix whats happening on the screen? basicly id like to no what the issues are before new code is added. anyone else had these issues or is my nook just acting stupid?

Bear in mind that this thread was pre-CM10 and a lot of things have changed, including running a rom that prefers faster hardware than you have.

I don't have a NC or watch Netflix so I probably won't be much help with this.

Are you overclocking?

Don't know about CM10 but I had Netflix working on my old Nook Color with Paranoid Android ROM. I could get through one movie but the Nook Color would have to be rebooted.

Have you tried the TV Portal App? It has TV shows and movies and requires MX Player (Free). TV Portal is on the Slide me app website
