    Anyone tried the app? It crashed on me. :(

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    It worked for me up until build 10547. Now it and hulu both complain.

    Seems to be good now since the app update.

    Is it just me, or did they reduce the amount of time between episodes? I'm sure it used to be 20 seconds, and now it's 15. It's genius, evil, but genius.

    Working for me but now using the XBOX One with Kinect to watch TV - and loving the functionality it brings!

    This app plays Netflix content well, but it seems I only have two sizing options: full screen, or a window which refuses to let me resize it. I'll stick with my web browser in the case of Netflix.

    You can make a better "app" by making a shortcut pointing to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app=http://www.netflix.com/WiHome

    Don't you get a 'Fullscreen' button on the lower right corner when you tap on a running video (to get the video playback options)?

     

    edit: I found an article showing it: http://www.windowscentral.com/netflix-app-updated-windows-10-controls-mobile-and-pc

    I have full screen, maximized, or this: http://postimg.org/image/infch5zdx/ <-- That is the only windowed size it will stay at. Any other size, it snaps back to this size -- unless I make it bigger. It won't get smaller than this.

    Which means if I don't want to watch something maximized or full screen, I have to put up with the middle third of that window showing the movie and the top and bottom thirds showing big fat black spaces (not screenshottable because it goes blank on screenshots).

    Fresh installed Netflix app. Stock Windows 10 Enterprise.

    I don't know what Windows Store you guys are using, but as far as I can tell, a good third of the apps have this problem where they won't get smaller than a third of my fracking screen.

    Edit: new image url.

    That's strange, I can set it all apps any size, both in the regular as the insider preview builds. Seems something is fishy with your installation and unrelated to Netflix... Can a bad video driver be the cause? Change your screen resolution and try again...

    @Craig_Matthews:

    You can't resize to bigger than that? That's strange. I think something is wrong with you Win10. Mine works fine. Yours looks like a phone size. Did you do something to enable Phone related thing on SDK or something? Just a wild guess.
