Windows 10: Netflix freezes full screen.

    Netflix freezes full screen.


    Hi Everyone,
    Two week ago I upgraded to windows 10 and immediately installed a new SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD Drive. All is working fine with the exception of Netflix that freezes avery minute or so in medium and full screen, (works ok in minimized screen).
    I understand Netflix needs "Silverlight" to function which is supposedly supported by Windows 10 but not by Windows Edge. I've tried running Netflix on Explorer but still have the same problem.
    However, I've also heard that Netflix no longer uses "Silverlight."

    Anyone have any ideas.

    Netflix has not used Silverlight for some time. Have you tried watching in Google Chrome? 10 has some issues with video streaming if you choose to do an upgrade and retain all previous settings, apps and drivers.

    Are you using the Netflix app or a browser?

    I have not tried using Chrome and I do not have the Netflix app. To be honest, I thought the Netflix app was only for Apple and Android tablets and phones.

    There is indeed a Windows Netflix app. Look for it in the Windows Store. It is free.
