If your like me, you use the Netflix profiles and you don't want to use and old version. Nor do you want to disable auto app updates.

I call this a workaround because you have to do it before you run Netflix... Every time. But maybe someone with more experience can make it permanent. Also I think it disables HD Video in Netflix.

Simply open /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml as a text document and place "nflx_player_type" value="8" on the next line under <map>

If you want, you can place the following in a *.sh file and run it with script manager with super user selected.

if [ -f /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml ]; then
grep -q nflx_player_type /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml && exit 0
cp /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml.orig && sed -e 's|</map>|<int name="nflx_player_type" value="8" />\n</map>|g' /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml.orig > /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml && rm /data/data/com.netflix.mediaclient/shared_prefs/nfxpref.xml.orig
fi

I have an issue of a gray screen but audio on the netflix app using CM 11.
The above seems to be too much work. I found Netflix Black instead which works fine, but no chromecast support.

Download here: (I'll post a link to the dev when I can find it)
