Netflixr

This application is not related to Netflix, Inc. or affiliated trademarks.
A simple app windows app (vbs-Script) to start Netflix in a restricted IE-Instance.

Why?

Because the native Netflix App for windows has some serious limitations for account-sharing. This app has several improvements:

  • No need for installation (built on top of IE)
  • No linkage to social media sites
  • Auto reroute of sites (no access to account settings page)
  • Auto login (no need to tell somebody your 60-character password)
  • Auto relogin
  • Auto choosing of account to use

Setup

Just clone / download this repo, and create a secrets.ini in the same directory with the following content:

[standard]
user = <user>
ppas = <ppas>
pfname = <profile>

and replace <user> with your netflix account username (email),
<pass> with your netflix account password in clear text,
<profile> with the profile name where you want to lock this installation to.

Start

Just double-click netflixr.vbs, all further starts can be made via the desktop link that this spawns.
