Make sure that any programs that typically use Silverlight (i.e. Zune, etc.) are closed during the installation or check to make sure that your computer is updated and running the latest version of Windows XP. If neither of those suggestions work, try a restart.

I can't see my Netflix movie on my laptop I can hear it but I can't see it


Shut down other applications when watching Netflix on your computer.
If you are watching Netflix on a Windows computer, it uses a program called Silverlight to play the video. If your processor goes above 80% usage, Silverlight will shut down the video and play audio only.

Netflix error 1810


Try clearing data on browser, each are different so try googling steps to clean or clear data, if this does not work

Silverlight installed to play netflix on computers & laptops might be the problem.
The Silverlight plugin, which Netflix uses to play movies and TV shows on your computer.
This error is usually caused by one of three things:
  • A computer setting preventing Silverlight from storing files it needs to play your movie or TV show
  • An issue with the Silverlight plugin itself
  • An issue with the content you're trying to play.
  • Try re-installing uninstalling then reinstalling silverlight.
Hope it works for you, best of luck.

We are ttying to "stream" and cannot connect to netflix


Hello.
To stream on Netflix your Netflix account has to be set up to stream.
For Netlix user's your account would be either streaming OR playing DVDs, not both.
If your Netflix is set up to stream, you may need to download Microsoft Silverlight which is free and availble from Microsoft.
Be sure to download the latest version of Silverlight.

You will also need to open Netflix.com and create an account on your computer.

Close netflix and reopen after creating account then login.
Then check your account for streaming or DVD playing.

Depending on why kind of TV you have to watch a movie you will need to connect to the TV with an HDMI cable.

Movies freezing on tv


I have had this problem.

Check to see if latest version of Microsoft Silverlight is installed.
If not uninstall the old version and install the latest version.
find it on Microsoft site.

If you have played a movie or are watching a series, stop the series when it ends, then go back and find the next one you want to watch.

I did this and no more freezing.

Try that

If you have a Netflix compatible Mac, the Silverlight plug-in will automatically install when you try to watch your first movie. It is possible that you have a PowerPC (PPC) Mac which in turn is too old for online video streaming. PowerPC Mac's will have great difficulty or the outright inability to use streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Prime etc. Check out the link I provide, and go to the "System Requirements" tab to see if your Mac meets the minimum. There is no "hack" or any other method that will make it work on a PowerPC Mac, it's just time for a newer computer. Get Silverlight Microsoft Silverlight
