    Your video card drivers may be out of date or corrupt.

    Uninstall and reinstall your video card driver. Your owner's manual or video card manufacturer's website can help.

What is Silverlight? and does it cost extra. Remember I have no personal computer at home.


you sound a little confused, netflix is a streaming service which requires a internet connection most people use a wireless internet connection, a wired connection would work better, netflix can be used on pc or a roku box and even some tablets. silverlight is a browser plug in for a pc. netflix basically streams movies and tv shows using a internet connection.

Why is my Netflix screen white with a small square at the top of the site with movie?


I fixed the problem by activating the Silverlight plugin. Open the menu button in Firefox. Click on Add-ons. This will open the Mozzilla page. Click Plugins. The Ad- ons Manager will open. It will list your ad-ons. Find Silverlight, then on the far right, choose how you want it to operate. I chose Always Activate. I had this problem on my Win7 laptop. When i tried to stream on my Win7 desktop, I got a pop-up asking me to activate Silverlight. I cllcked it and Netflix started streaming right away. Why the two Win7 machines are different, I have no idea.


You might also try another browser like Goodle Chrome.

You can update silverlight for free with Microsoft. Your computer needs the program to stream the programs.
It has nothing to do with Netflix, although the program is needed on your computer, to let Netflix (or any other movie program) work correct.

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.

Netflix will not come on it goes all the way to screen where you pick your choice but when i do it goes to another screen


After making a selection you should get a black screen with some blue balls that alternate from blue to white to show loading progress, that screen should change to the red "Netflix" screen with a progress bar on the bottom to show how much of the movie has been loaded into the streaming queue. Then it will go back to a black screen and the movie should begin to play.

Now the speed to which all of this occurs varies as it is based on your available download bandwidth. Based on the information provided, it could indicate a problem with the Silverlight plugin for your web browser.

Silverlight is a plugin created by Microsoft to allow the streaming of protected content, it is also the plugin that Netflix uses to stream online video.

You could try to uninstall the Silverlight plugin and then reinstall it to see if that works.

Microsoft Silverlight

The link above will take you to the Microsoft website with the current version of Silverlight.

If reinstalling the plugin does not fix the issue, a problem with your Internet connection, a firewall issue or a malware / spyware issue on your computer.

Are you connected directly to the TV or through a computer? Check that your computer has the latest update on Flash player, Silverlight,...
Check that your computer is running smoothly during streaming using the preformance tools. Check while streaming a movie.
for TV and computer download any of the latest software offered by the streaming internet player.
Change the resolution for smaller and test.
And don't put your email or full name on the net , it could be hacked to easely.
