Have just joined Netflix and am using Safari on a Macbook Pro. I can only watch the first 20 minutes of any show then it starts buffering - circle continues indefinitely. When I log off and on /shut down and restart it is still unable to play. I can watch the first 20 minutes or so of any program - one after another. They never come off buffering.
I called Netflix and they said it was a DNS problem and to call Optus. My speed is 33 so it is fine.
Anyone got any clues?
Also - even though the speed is 33 mpbs will a problem occur (buffering) if too many people are trying to use the tower at one time?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Its something other then buffering as if needs to buffer for you to watch the first 20 minutes.
Have you tried with a browser other then safari?
Does the internet still work for other websites when netflix fails?
What happens when you stream on your smartphone from the Netflix app?
If that still buffers would show a problem with data speeds.
You could also manually change the DNS address on you MacBook to one of these addresses:
184.108.40.206 / 220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168
