OS X :: Can I Install Netflix Streaming On IMac?

Can I install Netflix Streaming w/ no problems on my new Intel based iMac? I got the new 2009 model of the 24" iMac. Has anyone else installed and used Netflix streaming under similar circumstances with no problems? Did your Safari browser work fine with it?

IMac :: Loud Fan After 1 Hour Of Streaming Netflix Movie?
I just bought my first Apple product, an i-Mac 21.5. I love it except that a loud fan turns on after streaming a movie (netflix) after about an hour. If I simply turn off the computer for 5 minutes the fan turns off and I can resume streaming without the fan. - This has happened repeatedly in the week that I've owned the i-mac. I took it back to my Apple store for a checkup and they told me nothing was wrong. - Is this normal for new i-macs?

Applications :: Netflix Not Streaming HD With Safari?
Netflix recently announced that they will steam HD content to mac and pc users, but so far it does not work for me. I'll pick a show I know is in HD and play it, but while it shows the HD icon in the lower right, when I mouse over it the icon's pop-up displays the "allow HD button" checked and above that reads "not playing in HD"

I've tried this with several different sources with the same results. Anyone else with this problem? Is there a solution?

BTW, I meet all of Netflix's requirements for streaming to PC in HD:

Silverlight 3 or higher

A screen resolution of at least 800 x 600

A high-speed internet connection at time of playback (typically 5 Mbps or higher)

Hardware :: Best Streaming Box With Netflix?
I'm looking for a Streaming box to go in my living room with only a few parameters

1) It streams Netflix

2) It can be connected to external hard drives for movies (mp4) & music (aac)

I'd like to keep spending to a minimum. Is there anything out there with these features that isn't too expensive? Blu-Ray and everything else would be welcome, but I'm looking to spend no more than $250-300.

Mac Safari :: Netflix Streaming And Webkit Memory
Some days back there was an update for Silverlight. I use Netflix streaming to watch movies on Safari. Since that update when the movie starts till I quit Safari, all date collected is kept by Webkit. An example being I play a 2 hour movie and it downloads about 2 gigs of data, all that data is being used as active data from my RAM. So when I started the movie I had 2 gigs of free ram, and at the end of the movie, I have 0 MB of RAM left. When I quite Safari, Webkit releases all that memory back and I have 2 gigs of ram free again.

Mac Mini :: Netflix Quit Streaming - How To Fix It
I just purchase a new Aluminum Mac Mini last week. I was able to stream Netflix the first night I had it. Two days later, I upgraded the RAM to 8 GB and updated Silverlight, Perian and Divix. Now I get a connection error when trying to stream content from Netflix. My old Mac Mini (2.0 C2D w/3 GB RAM/OSX 10.6.4) can still stream content from Netflix, as can my iPad. So I doubt it is a connection problem... more likely a software issue.

Both mini's are using Safari 5 and I have tried to set the user agent to 4.1 (and others)... but it still won't stream.

Is there a known issue with the newest version of Silverlight and Safari 5? Any other hints as to why I can no longer stream content?

Applications :: Netflix Streaming Causes Firefox/safari Crashing?
When using either Firefox or Safari, recently, to watch instant movies via Netflix, the browser unexpectedly closes. Sometimes it gets to the buffering stage. I've cleared all my private data (history, caches, cookies...) and redownloaded flash/shockwave. I have the most current Silverlight too.

Any ideas? It worked perfectly since I've had it (about a month or two), up until today.

MacBook Pro :: Rectangular Artifacts During Netflix Streaming?
I've recently begun seeing random, darkish rectangles appear and disappear while watching a streamed Netflix movie.  Last night when it began happening, I disconnected my laptop and substituted a friend's, whose is almost identical to mine: hers is early 2011, mine is late 2011. Hers showed no rectangles. 

Several facts:

-- viewing in fullscreen mode

-- using video mirroring to display on TV

-- using WiFi

-- latest OS and Silverlight software being used

-- no other apps open

-- both laptops are MBP 13"  

Can anyone speculate as to what these randomly sized rectangles might be?  Are they artifacts of video compression or streaming?  Could they in any way indicate a failing video card?

MacBook Pro :: Hooking A MBP To HDTV For Netflix Streaming?
I was wondering what type of cable I need if I want to hook my Mac Book Pro (the new one, 15" 2.53GHZ) to my new LG HDTV coming in tomorrow, I've never had a HDTV before and I really want to use Netflix streaming to hook up to the TV or DVD Blu Ray player which is a LG too. I couldn't afford the high dollar wireless TV's that do one, but I found a nice 47" one for $999. I just don't want to buy the wrong cord without double checking first.

MacBook Pro :: Google Instant, FB Chat And Netflix Streaming Doesn't Work
February of 2010 I had an issue where Facebook chat did not work, I would sign into facebook and there wouldn't even been an option for facebook, like it never existed.

Summer of 2010 I upgraded to Snow Leopard and did a complete wipe and install, started from scratch.
This fixed the problem. I later got netflix and enjoyed watching movies on my mac.

Then.. out of nowhere, facebook chat issue comes back, netflix doesn't work and says my computer doesn't meet the requirements (sarfar 3 and up, and 1Gb ram - i have safari 5 and 2g ram). And then google instant was released as well and that doesnt work. All while my girlfriends (summer 10') mac book pro works fine, as well as my cousins Mac Book Pro (Summer 09'), works just fine.

Mac Mini :: Can I Use The Mini To Download Netflix Streaming Movies?
I have an older Mac mini, model A1176, 2005. I haven't upgraded to OS 10 yet, but I bought a family pack, and I can do that if I need to. Can I use the mini to download Netflix streaming movies? It has a CD slot; can I use it to play DVDs? My tv is also older, just a plain tv (no HD, no blueray) but it has a red-white-yellow port.

If I can do these things, what do I need to buy, and what do I need to do?

MacBook Pro :: Streaming Netflix Via Pro To TV
I would like to stream movies from Netflix on the Macbook Pro to my TV. I bought a Moshi Mini Displayport to HDMI Adapter and plugged into the laptop. I then removed the HDMI cable from my DVD player and plugged it into the adapter. I followed the directions in the set up guide to go to "Sound" in System Preferences to change output to "Built in HDMI Output", but nothing appears and I can't stream on to my tv. Any ideas how to stream or what I might be doing wrong?

OS X :: Netflix Crashed My IMac / Fix Booting Situation?
Nothing else was running, there have been some issues with running netflix and the image freezing but audio would continue, and the only way to get to undo was to hold the power button until it turned off.

Well I did it this last time and now the computer asks for a bootable disk

What could have happened from this situation, and how to fix the booting situation? Is netflix the culprit?

IMac Intel :: Can Display Sleep When Streaming To HDTV
I've got a 27" i7 quad core. I'm using a KANEX adapter to feed minidisplayport and USB audio to my HDTV via HDMI. Works great!

Question: When running content from the iMAC to the HDTV for long periods (i.e. streaming movies and such), is there a way to make the iMAC display itself sleep or go black, since there is no reason for it to be on since I'm watching the TV screen?

These new imacs tend to run hot anyway, so if I can turn off the imac display for hours when I'm watching it off the TV, that would seem a good idea, if possible.

If it were a macbookpro, I'd just shut the cover, and that would do it,'s not.

IMac :: Can Record A Live Streaming Game Off Of Cbs While Not Here
Alabama plays Arkansas today and [URL] is going to stream it live at their website. The game is at 2:30 p.m. central standard time. I'm not going to be here to watch the game and I no longer have satellite. We dumped it.

Is there any way for me to record it from the live stream while I'm gone?

Any programs out there anyone know about or anything already on the mac that'll do it.

IMac :: Streaming ITunes Content From A USB Drive?
I will shortly be receiving a new i7 iMac to replace my aging Mac Pro. I have a couple of TB of movies and music that I had on an internal drive in the Mac Pro that I used to stream to an Apple TV in another room. Since I am losing all of the drive bays I had with my Mac Pro, I am looking at external drives to use on the iMac. I was wondering how a USB drive would handle streaming movies and music. That is about the only thing that would be on the disk. Would it be fast enough? Or would it stutter? Or should I bite the bullet and go for a fire wire drive? I have a USB enclosure that I can use for it and when my Mac comes I can obviously try it, but was wondering if anyone was doing something similar.

IMac :: Streaming Music Videos From Mini To PS3
This will be easier if you know my setup, so here goes:

Computers: Mac mini (not a new one) (10.5.6)
Dell XPS 410 (Vista Home Premium)
Dell Studio 540 (Vista HP x64)
Router: Belkin N+ (4 gigabit ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n)
Connection Type: Mac (AirPort to the router)
XPS 410 (Ethernet) 540 (N+ USB adapter)
Other devices: PS3 (a few more, but they're not relevant).

Here's what I want to do. I want to stream some video, maybe music, from my mini to the PS3. For free. I was thinking since the PCs can connect to the PS3, that I could use one of those a catalyst.

IMac Intel :: QuickTime X Is Not Compatible With Streaming Video Online ?
I want to know why QT X Snow Leopard is not as versatile as the WMPMicrosoft, I tell you my problem with the player on your Mac:I live in Italy where I state that I have a DSL connection to 7 megs, andthen I do not know if this is the problem, however the player with Microsoftis not.

I ask because in the view streaming movies with DRMregularly purchased, and crushing the natural extension ofquick time on the website, can not read well and upload the video
in fact read streaming with Quick Time X buffer stopsalways does not work well with loss of video quality, whilesame video with WMP can be seen without problems.I have the impression that the world media on the Internet works well onlyithWindowsMediaPlayer ... and that QuickTime is not fully compatible

IMac Intel :: Wireless Streaming / Low Quality Connection Speed
So I hooked up my iMac to my HDTV and was excited to use Amazon Video on Demand (VOD). However I'm getting less than stellar results. My connection speed on the Amazon player shows low quality/low connection speed. I should note I'm using a wireless connection. To troubleshoot, I've run speed tests from my ISP as well as and they are stellar (20Mb/1.5mb). To go a step further (since Amazon's site suggests throttling by an ISP) I picked up my Dell laptop running Win7, sit it next to the iMac and it runs the video with no hitch at the highest or next highest rate. I'm also able to stream movies with no issue through my DirecTV boxes so again that eliminates ISP/wireless issues. I think the above isolates it to the Mac. I also had this issue with 10.6.5 (just applied the update). Also I was using the same browser - Chrome - in both tests but it really didn't matter if I tried Firefox or Safari.

Applications :: Cannot Get Netflix To Stream HD On MBP
I have a MBP unibody and I can't get netflix to stream HD on my computer. If I can get it to work, I'm going to buy the cables to hook my MBP to my HDTV. According to the Netflix website, to stream HD on your mac, you need a screen resolution of 800 x 600 or higher and high speed internet connection (they say 5mbps and I have 16mbps). Also, my silverlight is up to date. But whenever I try to watch an instant movie that is HD capable, it does not play it in HD. I was wondering if you guys who use netflix can tell me if you've been able to stream in HD on your mac?

IMac :: Install New Hard Drive But Missing Leopard Install Disc
I'm using a iMac PowerPC G5 that I've received from my brother. He gave it to me with a fresh install of Leopard on it, but he unfortunately no longer has the disc that came with the computer that he also used to format it before handing it to me. With that said, I ordered a new internal hard drive. Naturally, I'll need to re-install Leopard, but I don't have an install disc anywhere. How is this going to be possible? Or will it not be? Do I have to buy a new Leopard install disc? If so where and how much?
