Info 2 Netflix Debug Info - For the curious

Just wanted to let anyone know that if you have a USB keyboard plugged in, you can press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+D to bring up the debug info which shows the buffering and playing bitrate, and your last measured download speed along with a plethora of other info (while playing a Netflix video).

Thanks!

Since Netflix on the Fire TV doesn't support other countries than the US (even with unblock us), this might give me more info regarding why, will have to borrow a USB keyboard now.

adb logcat only gave me cert-errors while trying to play UK netflix or alike, looks like Amazon locked it down a bit more

I got netflix working with "unlocator". I live in the EU and had to set the DNS in my router. That made it work. I downloaded latest netflix from the store and sideloaded that app, but it's made for touch controls. Atleast the old netflix is working.

What exactly works w/ unlocator? US netflix works for me as well using unblock us, problem is in the local UK/NL versions, they don't work with the stock Netflix app. The side loaded version indeed does work, see my post in the Q&A section. ( to get around touch controls limitations, first start on your phone/tablet, then on the sideloaded netflix)

Still kinda stuck on local (NL/UK) Netflix w/ stock app, or are you saying this works with unlocator ?

Living in Brazil and I'm using Netflix without any modifications at all. Just had to move my amazon app account to US so I could download the Netflix app.

Yeah, Fire TV Netflix supports all Americas countries (US,CA,BR,AR,CO etc), but no European ones, even with unblock us and alike. Gives Java certificate chain errors. Too bad for now.
