For UK / Ireland items
If you can get your instant queue, then the api calls work.
playback is easy enough, it just sends the id + the url to the browser for playback (that's those .htm files it's writing to your user directory)
Let me know exact changes that are needed and I can add a menu option for uk/ireland to it.
It's prob just a few url changes if the api is working it's gonna be easy enough, it's just hard in that I can't test any of it, but can point ya in the right direction.
netflix.py and iqueue.py are the main areas of the addon that do the work, look in those for netflix.com area's

Sadly Netflix UK doesn't have the queue feature

The first part of netflix.py contains the following:
HOST = 'api.netflix.com'
PORT = '80'
REQUEST_TOKEN_URL = 'http://api.netflix.com/oauth/request_token'
ACCESS_TOKEN_URL = 'http://api.netflix.com/oauth/access_token'
AUTHORIZATION_URL = 'https://api-user.netflix.com/oauth/login'
Could this be the problem?

Also iqueue.py has the following entry:
I haven't got firefox installed (just IE) so will install Firefox to see if this helps!

Been playing around with this a bit more today, when I click on a film from New Additions etc it will link to a page however it comes up with the error that the film isn't available. It seems that none of the films listed in XBMC are actually available from the Netflix site.
The links to the films are located in \userdata\addon_data\plugin.video.xbmcflicks\links and there are quite a few in there. Each one is an html file with the movie id listed within it. When I click on any of these files I get the error as above, meaning, I presume the movie is no longer available on the site.
I did a simple test of going direct to the Netflix website, hovered over one of the movies which showed the movie id in the bottom task bar. I then amended one of the html files back in the userdata folder by changing the movie ID within the file and renamed it the same (I also updated the movie title within the file too). When I click on the file after it successfully links through and plays the movie from Netflix.
However, I cannot get the movie to appear in XBMC film list.
Any ideas how we can get the films to be updated from the Netflix site and listed correctly?

I just have a quick question.. I have the plugin installed, and linked my account. I can browse TV Shows, and start them fine. But i cannot seem to browse the Movies, other then the Top 25 that is listed on the main page. I can watch the movies IF they are on the Instant Queue. But in order to do that, i added it from the web interface. IS this how it's done? I have to go to netflix.com, browse through movies and add them to Instant Queue to watch them? Or am i missing something here?

I don't know if am being stupid, but I have read loads of stuff and can't seem to find the answer.
I have a Jailbroken Apple TV2 with seas0npass and installed nitoTV and XBMC.
I have no option on my Apple TV2 for Netflix and believe you can get it through XBMC Flicks.
How can you install XBMC flicks on your Apple TV2, what I have read is that it should be listed in XBMC addons but there is no listing there.
Or is there any othe way of installing Netflix on a Apple TV2?
Hope this does not sound a stupid question as I am new to this!!!!
any help would be much appriciated
p.s I am in the UK

I've been looking through this thread and I haven't seen any recent information posted about the possibility of getting this working on a Linux XBMC system. What is the current status of this? I believe that the Chrome plugin is now up and running (sort of) under linux (well chromebook).
- billy24 - 2012-01-12 00:15
Found out if you use the most recent seas0npass and restore your Apple Tv2 to restore 4.4.4, the Netflix option appears in internet drop down menu, then you have to jailbreak it again and ssh nitotv and install xbmc.
Just if anyone else is interested!!!!

How do the .htm files (movie links) get created in the \userdata directory? As per my last posts it seems these are incorrect and when clicked just produces a message that the films are no longer available. However, amend one of the .htm files to a current film (obtaining the ID from the Netflix website) it works and plays ok.
Which python script is responsible for obtaining the links?
I don't mind investigating myself (already spent a few hours looking into it) but it's not immediately evident to me.
I'm in the UK and would love to have this working.
Thanks in advance for your help
