How do I get a visual on the netflix movie that is playing? I can hear it, but the screen is white.


HI Jennie
If your using a recent Mac with say Maverics OSX then it may be in an off screen window.
Try these Keys
Ctrl & Page up (Arrow Key).... then Choose Movie Window
Ctrl & Page down (Arrow Key)....
The Settings for this are kept in Settings / Mission Control

I think this will allow you to see the offscreen alternate windows.

Netflix is an on line Internet player from a Paid service.

I don't use the same method or app as you so I'm not sure this will work. I use an Application to play movies from my external hard drive and I get the same off screen window that you seem to be describing.

Good Luck
Trevor

Other Notes:
I use VLC to play all my movies of my hard drive (a free download & it plays every codec type avi, mp4 etc) I keep the Icon for VLC in my bottom dock.
When I double click the VLC icon in the dock the window switches to the current movie playing,
If your using a different movie player program then just double click it's icon in the bottom dock. (e.g. Quicktime Player)

If you do switch to VLC then use the Cmd I (Info) on each type of movie (e.g. .mp4) In the Cmd I , Menu , choose "Open With" and select VLC as the preferred player (after you have installed VLC of course) then click the "Change All" button.
From then on all MP4's movie types will be played by VLC.

I have downlode 2 movies but it is not play sume code problam pls hilp me


If you are trying to use Windows Media Player it's no wonder you can't watch them or you are having codec problems. Open up internet explorer and go to google. In the google search box type in "Download VLC Player". Look at the search results and look for www.videolan.org/vlc to download the player. VLC is free open source and it is a much better player with all the drivers and codec. It runs things that windows media player has a problem playing. Once you download and install it, go to the movie file you downloaded and Right Click on it and select the Open With option. If you don't see VLC listed in the Open With options, choose the option at the bottom that says Choose Program. Look for VLC in the program list. Choose VLC to play the movie and see what happens.

How to play subtitle in the movie?


Try playing your movies with VLC Media Player, which can be found here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
It's 100% free and can play all types of codecs.
You can just drag and drop your subtitles over the movie once it's started.
What is the player you are using now?
