    Try pressing the info (menu, whatever) button when on the movie info screen, brings up an OSD, and then select play from there.

    All this does for me is open a browser outside of MP and still asks me to login. Then it does not accept my credentials. I'm using Streamed MP.

    The problem that I had was it was not letting me type the letter a or d. Unfortunately I have both in my email and password. I was able to get it to work by copying my email to the clipboard and changing my password. Then I was able to save the username and password in the browser that opened up.

    Not sure what you mean by "Info" button. Up top there is a drop down menu that has a play button, I hit that but nothing happens....also I just hit enter, as well as click and double-click on the info screen.

    Could there be a plug-in that I need installed for this to work?

    I'm assuming my username and password are correct as I can see my Queue's as well as my my history fine. Just can't seem to launch a movie from my instant queue.

    I put in the path to IE8 also in the config screen to see if that may be the problem. still nothing.

    @ those having issues with the browser asking for credentials....

    In the config you can toggle the AutoKey scripts. Check the box, save the settings then go back into MP and start a movie. Enter your credentials, you shouldnt have any issues.

    After you get that working, go back into the config and uncheck the AutoKey scripts checkbox.

    Found this post which includes some interesting options for keyboard control including access to the 'proper' fast forward options.
    Netflix Movie Player Keyboard Shortcuts « Musings
    Space – Toggle Play/Pause
    Enter – Toggle Play/Pause
    PgUp – Play
    PgDn – Pause
    F – Full-screen
    Esc – Exit full-screen
    Shift+Left arrow – Rewind
    Shift+Right arrow – Fast Forward

    In full-screen mode:

    Ctrl+space – Frame forward/backward mode. Ctrl+space pauses the movie and enters key frame mode (aka intra-frame or i-frame mode). The right and left arrow keys move between key frames.

    They all seem to work, in IE at least, but require one mouse click on the player to 'activate' the netflix player for input. I am going to program my irremote.ini (hauppauge remote) to use these commands, anyone know how would I go about making an automatic first mouse click?

    Hey poppabk,
    Thanks for the information...

    Yes, we have known about the keystrokes and are working to get them incorporated into the custom browser for the 2.0 release. We will map the key strokes to the a remote button to make it work smooth (we hope :) )

    Wile E.

    Figured out how to create an autohotkey script that clicks the middle of the screen on a certain button press. Wily is there an easy way to replace your script with my own? I just have an .ahk file but you have multiple programs.

    Cool... Yep, you can try to rename the netflix_control.exe in the "Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\NetFlix_Remote" folder. It will start as soon as an instant movie is started. (note: it will also be disposed of when you close the browser.)

    Try that and let me know how it works. Also, if you want to share you script, post it here. Im always looking for better ways to handle the remote buttons...

    Thanks,
    Wile E.

    I'll post what I end up with but it will be hauppauge remote based, so the autohotkey script will have only one entry a click in the middle of the screen to activate the silverlight player to accept the other shortcuts, everything else will be in the irremote.ini file. I may try and add the next episode buttons if I can as they don't seem to be supported and I use them a lot.
