    Netflix was updated to version 1.3 today. For me there is no longer any green bar at the top. I am on rooted stock. The new .apk file is available for download here.

    To install:
    1. If you have a previous version of netflix uninstall it.
    2. Download the .apk file from here
    3. Get it on your phone by connecting via USB or using dropbox
    4. Make sure allow unknown sources is checked in settings.
    5. Download either a File Explorer (I prefer ES file Explorer) or apk installer from the market
    6. open the app and file the netflix apk you download. It is named com.netflix.mediaclient.1.3
    7. click it and go through the install process
    8. enjoy netflix on your optimus V!

    If you are experiencing sound problems and would like to revert to the previous version. Version 1.2.1 is available here

    Thank you for your time and help. I uninstalled the old apk, installed the new one.....Netflix is prompting me to update. Is it ok to update or should I ignore?

    No green bar which is great but now audio is out sequence and video is not fluid as before then after a short while it goes into indefinite buffering this with wifi DSL 1.5mb. Went back to the previous version with the green bar at least the audio is in sequence and video is fluid and the movie continues to play. I'm sure in time they will correct these problems.

    Yeah, same issues here. I also had my phone do a rebot on it's own. When the phone was back up and running my net flix icon was not where I added it to one of my screens or even listed in application list?
    I went into astro and it showed it there so
    .. guess it's back to the green bar

    Oh and I'll take back my woohoo and sign off with a DOH!

    For those of you experiencing sound sync issues I added a link to download the old 1.2.2 version. I hope the next release is perfect. -_-

    Hi guys, I have had this problem too... I'm running AOSPCMod CM7, and it still lags and is out of sync... even when overclocked.

    So what I would recommend doing here is just running the old version, version 1.2.2. The new version, version 1.3.0, is using the H.264 codec, which is the reason why it lags. The bottom line is that the phone can't handle the decoding.

    Here are links to a few that I found that are good:

    RedSea VXXX HiDef1080p Dual H264/H263, Auto Screen Rotation
    http://goo.gl/TiGf3
    [​IMG]

    Netflix-HiDef1080p-BlueSea-Rotate-VXX.apk with dual H.264 technology built in
    http://goo.gl/swWd1
    [​IMG]

    And here's just the standard 1.3.0
    http://goo.gl/nQ4lQ

    Hopefully that'll help! :D

    I just used the multiupload direct download link and it worked fine for me. The Download File button never did do anything though.

    Doh. 1.2.1 gave me the green bar and the color issue. 1.3 now gives me the audio/video sync issue. :(

    I guess I can try 1.2.2.

    Would running it from the SD Card cause i to go slower by any chance? Wondering if that might be causing the sync issues.

    Hmm, the link above that says 1.2.2 is really 1.2.1. :(

    My daughter still has the older version apk 1.2 and hers still works fine (green bar and all) she still gets the prompt to upgrade but just cancels it. Mine lost the video, did that happen to anyone else with the older version?
