    Every time I attempt to stream a video on netflix, either on safari or firefox, it crashes.

    Does anyone experience this? I was just watching them fine the other day, but now I can't.

    I'm about to cancel my membership, because I can't watch anything.

    What os are you running, what version of browsers? Make sure you have all updates. I am not having a problem...

    I have Leopard version 10.5.8

    I just updated to the newest Safari and Firefox.

    It's strange.

    Netflix, Snow Leopard, Freezing, Hard Restart

    I know this post is really old, but I'lll give it a shot.

    I'm having the same problem with Netflix! I'm running Snow Leopard with the most recent versions of Safari and/or Firefox - even Opera - it doesn't matter.

    After some random amount of time streaming video in Netflix the screen goes black and the sound stutters in the background and the only way to make it stop is to do a hard restart.

    It has nothing to do with buffering or updating silverlight. I updated silverlight and I wait for the video to buffer.

    Any ideas?

    Try this

    www.netflix.com/clearcookies

    it don't delete your queue, it just clears out the cookies.

    for good measure I would uninstall and reinstall silverlight after you delete your netflix cookies.

    I am having the exact same problems!!! I thought I might need an update so I tried that but NO JOY! maybe there is some Mac Mini BUG. Mine is 3 years old the one with the DVD Slot. How about yours?
