question:
do you also have micro jerks when playing netflix movies with kodi?
setting thing ?
Probably frame rate shudder and unless your device supports auto-frame rate matching you'll have to change it manually in your device's display settings. Netflix movies play at 24 frames per second, so if your device resolution is 4K 60 hz change it to 4K 24 hz (or 23.976 hz if you have it).

Seriously, haven't those jerks at Netflix got anything better to do than block its subscribers from accessing what they pay for on "unauthorised" devices? Oooo, what a crime. So many other streaming services these days that aren't so anal. Subscribe to them, and download or stream Netflix shows on torrent apps for free.

Not only should you cancel your subscription, hit it em where it hurts - in the ratings. At every opportunity give them 1-star. I mean, it wouldn't be a lie to give Tiger King 2 one star. That steaming pile of recycled garbage rates only 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Or Red Notice - give a couple of obscenely overpaid actors a script written by an eight year old, and voila, you get this inane crap. Netflix are going down the toilet, let's help flush them.

Has anyone tried watching with a VPN? I've got buffering issues when watching through a VPN. Didn't have those issues when I was using the modded Netflix apk. Is there settings or anything I need to adjust within Kodi?

Edit : Is there any way I can fix buffering issues regardless if I am using a VPN?

It prompts an error "Problem with syntax code execution", when I start the .apk file.

the best option is the kodi netflix in the post

It works great when I'm watching local content, but I also used to use my VPN to watch geo-restricted content, and with the Kodi addon it seems to buffer a lot whenever watching a different region via VPN (I didn't have that issue with the Android TV mod). Not sure if it's something in Kodi itself I need to change, or the Netflix Kodi addon?

Has anyone else tried different Netflix regions with a VPN? If so, are you getting buffering?

Kodi-Mod Netflix option is ok thanks for sharing this app.

But still 540p or slightly better playback
720 and 1080p don't work

The best solution is to run CoreELEC from an sd card
netflix runs in 1080p without any problems.



amlogic only

    Hi Ekay, thank you so much for your fantastic work.

    Please, in this last update, would it be possible to force Kodi to already open with the Netflix plugin content? Let me explain: Once we launch the app, we need to navigate to the Netflix option to list the content. So, would it be possible when starting Kodi to already be within this option without having to navigate to it?
    Hey, not just Titan Bingie, with this Arctic Zephyr also, I deep down a bit in the skin settings.
    Here are the steps for your req:
    1. Navigate Kodi Setting main menu button (Ekay predefined in the skin)
    2. Navigate Skin settings
    3. Now you are in the Home setting
    4. Click on the Customize home menu
    5., Now you are in the Netflix Login main menu customization
    6. Navigate WIDGETS set-up (right , down frame)
    7. Click on Widget 1 - Fullscreen
    8. Now you click on Widget 1
    9. From the pop-up window browse the Add-on> option / Video Add-On> / Netflix >
    10. Now you can see your Netflix-defined user profiles.
    11. Click on your profile
    12. Click on Use as a widget
    With this example set-up if you are going back to on the main screen and browse the Netflix Login main menu icon, the Netflix add-on service after a few sec, collecting the basic Netflix main screen items, eg. "My List", "Continue Watching" etc.
    So next time if you will launch the Netflix Kodi apk the Skin and Netflix service automatically log in to your profile and collect the Netflix main menu items (attached a picture) after a few seconds.
    Also, you can set up more main menu buttons, with the widget, so you can set up separate buttons to the Netflix shortcuts - such as My List, Trending Now, Continue Watching etc.
    Also you can set up the widget look such as Poster, Thumbnail etc.

    Netflix 8.1.2 build 3844
    netflix2-gigapixel.png

    At the moment, the method of changing the ESN number is non-working!
    Work on the problem of non-certified devices continues, new versions may appear in the future.
    Requirements:
    -Any uncertified device by Netflix

    Changes:
    -You can insert any ESN number
    -Google verification disabled

    What works:
    -HD
    -Audio 5.1
    -HDR

    Tested on MI TV 4A/4S RU Edition

    1. Download and unzip the archive BatchApkTool.zip (BatchApkTool is already configured and has a batchapktool.ini settings file!)
    The unpacked folder(_INPUT_APK) already contains the apk mod, so you don't need to download it in advance!
    2. Run BatchApkTool.exe
    - Enter the command in numbers: 04

    (This command decompiles the necessary part of the APK)
    -Wait for the decompilation to finish, but don't close this app!
    3. Go to the directory: _INPUT_APK\com.netflix.ninja_8.1.2_build_3844_mod\smali\o\
    and find the file
    setShowsDialog. smali
    - Open the setShowsDialog.smali file and find the lines 621 and 632:
    - Change the ESN number "NFANDROID1-PRV-T-L3-SDMC=MBX4K=RANGER-9908-" to "YOUR ESN NUMBER" and save file!
    4. In the BatchApkTool app, enter the command: 05
    - Wait for the compilation to finish!

    5. Take the compiled APK with your ESN number in the _OUT_APK folder.
    6. Install it on your device and use it!
    Requirements:
    -Any uncertified device by Netflix
    -Security Level: Widevine L1
    -Doesn't work if the level is
    Widevine L3

    Changes:
    -You can insert any ESN number
    -Disable app signature verification

    What works:
    -HD and UHD(4K)
    -Audio 5.1
    -HDR
    -Netflix Recommendations on Home Screen
    (You need to update the Android TV Home app)

    Tested on MI TV 4A/4S RU Edition



    Modification instructions:

    1. Download original apk: com.netflix.ninja_6.1.3_build_2482-2482_minAPI22.apk
    2. Decompile the APK file with APKTOOL 2.5.0
    3
    . Find out your ESN number in any way, such as using Kodi+Netflix plugin, etc.

    Example, on my device ESN Number: NFANDROID2-PRV-0-XIAOMMITV-MSSP1-11579-8E7EBE41602D7BFE5FB467845C6F254CAD5677390EFB960CA0D11755BB31CDD5
    The ESN number needs to be adjusted, but all this is individual, for me, the working option turned out to be this: NFANDROID1-PRV-0-XIAOMMITV-MSSP1-11579-

    4. Add your device's ESN number to the file BaseEsnProvider.smali:
    The file is located in the directory: DECOMPILE_APK\smali\com\netflix\mediaclient\service\configuration\esn\
    Code:
    .method public getEsn()Ljava/lang/String;
        .locals 1
    
        .line 310
        iget-object v0, p0, Lcom/netflix/mediaclient/service/configuration/esn/BaseEsnProvider;->esn:Ljava/lang/String;
    
        return-object v0
    .end method
    Code:
    .method public getEsn()Ljava/lang/String;
        .locals 2
    
        .line 310
        iget-object v0, p0, Lcom/netflix/mediaclient/service/configuration/esn/BaseEsnProvider;->esn:Ljava/lang/String;
    
        const-string v0, "YOUR ESN NUMBER"
    
        return-object v0
    .end method

    Where "YOUR ESN NUMBER", insert your ESN number.

    4.1 To remove the optimization error (-14):
    Find the file: DECOMPILE_APK\smali\com\netflix\ninja\MainActivity.smali
    Comment out line 3723 like this: #invoke-virtual {p1}, Landroid/app/AlertDialog;->show()V

    4.2 This solution to disable PUSH error (-14) on Home Screen ATV:
    Find the file: DECOMPILE_APK\smali\com\netflix\mediaclient\service\pushnotification\PushJobServiceUtils$Companion$tryStartService$1.smali
    Comment out line 105 like this: #invoke-virtual {v0}, Landroid/widget/Toast;->show()V



    5. Compile the app using APKTOOL 2.5.0.
    6. Remove the signature verification using the program: ApkSignatureKiller.zip

    Unpack archive, go to the folder and transfer the original apk and recompiled apk. Rename them, for example: orig.apk and mod.apk
    Open the file config.txt and make the configuration:
    Code:
    # original file
    apk.signed=orig.apk
    
    # recompiled file
    apk.src=mod.apk
    
    # output file
    apk.out=out.apk
    
    # do not touch the other settings
    sign.enable=true
    sign.file=test.keystore
    sign.password=123456
    sign.alias=user
    sign.aliasPassword=654321
    Run script run.bat and wait for the script to finish working, in the folder you should get a working apk with your ESN number.

    What do you need to know if you are having problems with the app?

    Good luck watching Netflix!

    Netfux SUCKS

    I have quit this project as netfux is trash.
    I I like these alternatives, but you need to choose for yourself

    💊 THIS is a great alternate provider for the same stuff and more( check your local laws and regulations before using such an app, Always support your content creators)

    💊 THIS is a better provider/content creator that supports U𝝥NITY, not division
