You could go on their website and change the quality of the content down in the account settings, then you could watch more for less data

MY PHONE WONT PLAY VIDEOS FROM HULU OR NETFLIX


Do you have your phone hooked to wifi? If not do you have those apps set to use data? If not go to settings depending on your phone you will need to allow data usage with those apps.

been charge extra for going over cap

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.

How to fix buffering while viewing movies?


The cause of buffering is due to lack of consistent data flow. This can be due to quality of wireless connection, bandwidth capacity of connection (ISP speed), or amount of internal memory available for buffering. Ensure that you maximize the amount of available RAM for data buffering. Ensure that you have adequate ISP speed to support the video quality you are trying to view. Lastly, make sure that you have the strongest possible wireless signal to avoid slow data throughput.
If you have done all you can and are still having issues, you may have to reduce viewing resolution to reduce the amount of data streaming required.

This is from Netflix Website.

Several ISP providers are throttling Netflix because they consume a huge amount of bandwidth that the ISP does not get additional revenue for. Check with your neighbors and see what they are using.

Blu ray Lg BP200 keeps stopping when playing Netflix


I started having this problem a few months ago with netflix playback getting 'skippy' after ~6+ months of smooth operation. I finally figured out: Went into my netflix web-admin panel on my Windows laptop. From there changed my SETTINGS for netflix: "PlayBack Settings" adn dropped it from "AUTO" Data usage per screen to "MEDIUM" (standard video quality, 0.7gb per hour). Bouf. Magic. Everything is working perfectly again - no more skipping. I think my netflix was trying to run at a higher setting (3gb/hour) and then downsampling it for my TV set (which is not able to show the higher res anyhow - it is only 32" screen) - so it was wasted bandwidth, and making the playback stink. I hope this helps someone else. --Tim (May-2014)

My Dell Latitude D620 runs slowly on ac power. The pc usage spikes to 100. Occassionally it will start running properly on ac power, but problem persists once unplugged or hibernates.


This sounds like a problem with your power management settings. On battery power, many of the "bells and whistles" futures such as the transparent task bar are turned off to save battery life. This greatly reduces your cpu usage, thus saving power. I would recommend changing the theme from Windows Aero to Windows Basic. This can be found by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting personalize. Good luck!
