Can't get Netflix plugin to work

Postby pete_auto » Sat Jul 31, 2010 3:23 pm

I downloaded the trial version of MLNetflix, along with Silverlight media player etc. I also played a movie (as per wiki). When I open the netflix scenes, I don't see any pictures in the thumbs. The variables are also not populating. I followed all instructions in the wiki (and there are not too many details here).

What am I missing? Can someone help?

Thanks

To confirm. Did you open netflix.com in Internet Explorer on your MLServer PC and logged in and told Netflix to remember you?
Are you using the latest version of MLServer?
If you go into the Netflix plugin and click on the Update plugin do you see a program called MLDataCollector running in Task Manager?
In the MLServer\Logs folder do you have a MLDataCollector-20100731.log file? If yes anything interesting in it?

Hi Dave,

Yes, I opened netflix n internet explorer and checked the box to remember me.

I don't see MLDataCollector running in task manager. I am not sure where to click "update plug-in" as I don't see this option in the Netflix plugin.

The MLDataCollector file in the log folder under MLServer shows the following:

7/30/2010 8:54:38 PM ParseNetflixQueue - Invalid HTML returned. No Data Found.
7/30/2010 9:02:55 PM ParseNetflixQueue - Invalid HTML returned. No Data Found.
7/30/2010 9:27:08 PM ParseNetflixQueue - Invalid HTML returned. No Data Found.

So obviously, I am missing something basic here. Please help.

Thanks

Set up LogMeIn so I can remote in to have a look.
