    I've noticed when i try to click play, i am greeted with a page not found page on netflix's website. Is there improved support for the canadian catalogue or is that an API issue through netflix itself

    Hey Neven,
    I am coding the new version with the full understanding that NetFlix may open up the API to Canada. As of now, I cannot do much other than allow Canadian users to disable (hide) most of the queues. Even the searches will be hit or miss due to some titles being available in the US and others available in Canada.

    I know thats not what you wanted to hear, but I encourage you to write NetFlix and ask them to open the API to canadian users. If there are enough requests it may be worthwhile for them to open it up...

    Wile E.

    I am pleased to hear you are taking into account the possible release of the API. I've read before about the netflix API for canada being non existent, but just wasn't sure if its been changed yet. I'll definitely write them about this as i would love to be able to use your plugin just so i have remote functionality. Unfortunately being on netflix canada, you expect to ride the short bus every time compared to south of the border.
