    You have to be on the the Gingerbread OS to stream netflix. I am rooted using GB and can stream no problem. Loving it too.

    We have to wait for the official GB update to stream vids. You download the app now, though.

    I meant if you're running stock. We're not rooted.

    Understand, as of right now stock can't get it. Rooted users on 4.5.595 Can. Sorry for the confusion, my first post said I was rooted running 4.5.595 and that it worked. The official app does not work it was tweeked to work.

    Mrmoto, that is the same one I had installed. I uninstalled and reinstalled it, and now it works. I have no idea what was wrong.

    if you try to install the app from the Market you'll either not see it, or of you to to the Web version you'll get a message "your phone is not supported".

    Except for about 5 models, it is not supported via the Market ... and no Droid models are supported.

    Netflix is not supported on a non-rooted Droid X. The official Netflix version which is available to those select phone will not load on a Droid X - "this phone is not supported". An NICE hit by Jonathan Niece.

    actually..some of the things you guys are saying is not true. You don't have to be rooted to install this app. I installed the tweaked Netflix app and could do everything but stream. My phone is on GB .591

    I sent the same app to my friend on stock DX without root and he was able to stream American Dad instantly! It seems to vary on which build you have.

    So if you are not rooted, go ahead and download the tweaked verison (the one that doesn't check which phone you have) and enjoy Netflix!

    I couldn't find the Netflix app everyone was raving about in the Market for my DroidX. Googled around, and found this version works on my unrooted stock DroidX:

    I can confirm what Natey2 says. I'm running the device check disabled version on my stock non-rooted Froyo .340 Droid X and it streams beautifully to my big TV using RealHDMI. THIS is what I bought a Droid X for! Glorious.

    No error of any kind. Watched the first part of two movies on my stock DroidX running Android 2.2.1, and also on my Windows laptop.
    It is much better quality than other services I have tried, and I might even subscribe after this free 30-day trial.
