Problem fixed thanks.
If anyone else has a similar problem, try starting XBMC in portable mode as thats what fixed it for me. Maybe its because the application data folder is hidden? idk

I'll have to spin off a build for Canada by itself as I'm not sure that the api calls will work (they are not documented at all) and I can't test it to even see if the data pull works at all (no access as I'm in the US)
Quote:For users that get an error when the click for the first time, and no popup of IE that should ask to have them login..Your computers date/time is off, fix that and it'll work.. I'll add some info to the oauth library to output that error in the xbmc log file.

I've been working to get the running on my ATV
I get the prompt to click ok once i've linked xbmcflicks with my netflix but the browser never pops up. I've edited the 2 files and figured i'd post my log to see if it's the same as others. I've posted all I think is needed and i've never entered a user or password so i'm not worried about it showing up in the log.
thanks for your time..

I signed up for the netflix canada trial subscription, got your plugin, logged in.. it seems to pull up my account suggestions, I can search, browse etc..... but anytime I click to watch it seems to just time-out and and come-up with an error... nothing ever comes on screen.. I click... wait.... error.

the AppleTV is definitely a little more of a pain. I have properly put in all required configuration files and get no browser window popping up. Is it possible to manually edit the userinfo.txt via ssh/sftp and put in our credentials or is there a specific auth process that the browser needs to do with the API.
I am also in Canada so any support for Netflix Canada would be great.

Thanks for all the work on this add on.
I to am a Canadian user of Netflix. I though I would post a summary of what I have observed so you may have a better idea of what is required to support it.
1) XBMC regisgters fine with the Canadian log in. The keys all appear in the userinfo.txt
2) The instant queues do not load any information.
3) The "Top 25 ew Arrivals" and "All New Arrivals" both work and display video information along with artwork.
4) The search function works
Hope this gives you some insight

has anyone tried to use the "libmoon" package, which is supposed to emulate silverlight, to try to make Netflix work in Live/Linux

Read your log, it is telling you to visit Netflix.com and link your netflix account with XBMCflicks. You're almost done.

I am also a netflix user that would LOVE to be able to access it through XBMC! Im getting really tired of not being able to access anything due to living in Canada! We have some great minds here, they just don't seem to be interested in making anything to access TV/Videos in Canada! Man I wish I knew how to program!
Netflix has Canada API's avail according to their website. I tried to look at the files contained in the XBMC flicks add-on but I know nothing.. it would seem to me that it should be as simple as replacing the US website references to Canada ones.......? of course using Canadian API's I don;t know
I'm really hoping someone can get this working.. I am trying to get rid of Cable and start pulling everything through the PC but due to the country I live in that seems to be hard to do without going to many different websites to watch TV shows and Movies... wishing someone could write something that would allow Canadians to access/watch TV shows from CTV/Global/discovery canada, etc as well as Netflix all from within XBMC! that would be AWESOME!
Heres to hoping!

Q: I don't get the initial browser popup to link netflix to my account
A: Your computers date / time is off, fix the date and time, sync it to an NTP server
Example in the log you see.. File "/Users/frontrow/Library/Application Support/XBMC/addons/plugin.video.xbmcflicks/resources/lib/oauth.py", line 142, in from_string
Q: I'm in canada, most parts don't work
A: Someone please post for each section, what works and what doesn't work. I have to "guess" at the api calls (netflix won't provide the list of them for Canada) so i need to know what works and what calls I need to rework
i.e. Instant Queue - Pass/Fail - Error or Doesn't load anything with no error
Q: I'm using Linux and it don't work
A: Your out of luck, there's no workaround for it. You'll have to wait until Netflix goes to HTML5 or Microsoft Supports Linux with Silverlight. Moonlight will NOT work, the DRM that is required does not work under Linux using Moonlight, thank Microsoft for that one.
