    Yeah I just downloaded and am taking it for a spin. Audio seems to be a bit off and of course the buffering is awful. Hopefully wifi will be better.

    Ran on wifi, buffering was good but sound is off.

    Not working for me on a stock Optimus V. Annoyingly I had to remove some apps to make room for Netflix. Since then it's just been stuck at it's red splash screen with the little loading symbol going round and round and round. UPDATE: moved it to the SD card and I get get past the logo to a white screen but it still just hangs. Not good. UPDATE II: uninstalled and reinstalled. Seems to work fine now. Bit pixilated via home wifi but better than not having it. :)

    Just curious, is anyone overclocking their OV here? I suspect that the OV may not have enough processing power to handle the real-time video decoding and audio processing required by the Netflix app. I've read that the Triumph seems to be working fine for other Netflix users.

    Netflix should follow the trend and just hire one of the devs from XDA to fix their app. :p One of them already fixed it to work on the OpV.

    I'm over clocked and since 1.2.2 worked on the backside rom with no bar and no sound issues I went back to that. I've also used this app on stock when it had the green bar with no issues so its not the phone its there audio codec.

    I to reverted to 1.2.2, the newer version of Netflix seems to take longer to load, not to mention the bad audio codec. 1.2.2 works fine for me over 3G as well as wifi, and with BACKside rom's Netflix fix, it gets rid of that green bar and fixes the colors. I personally suggest using Netflix 1.2.2 until its fully capable with our phones, considering all. Netflix did was make the app available, the did not make any fixes for the slower/lower end android phones, which was somewhat a careless act on their part, allowing it to be available to install, but not making it compatible with the phones so we can't actually enjoy it.
