Netflix is one of the most well-known digital media streaming services, with around 17,000 excellent titles available worldwide, Netflix really has something for everyone.
On Netflix, you can access blockbuster movies, classic TV shows and even Netflix Originals like the highly anticipated new season of Stranger Things. Watch unlimited digital files wherever, whenever completely ad-free.
If you are going somewhere without a stable internet connection and no Wi-Fi you can even download and watch movies and TV shows offline in the Netflix app. You never have to be without entertainment again!
Netflix offers a kids area and parental controls so that the whole family can stream movies in a safe and age-appropriate environment.
Want to watch Netflix together when you aren’t in the same room as your friends? Try having a Netflix Zoom party and stream Netflix on Zoom so that everyone can watch Netflix, no matter where there are.
The pros of a Zoom Netflix party are that you don’t need to be in the same physical location, not everyone needs a Netflix subscription, and you can watch on the Zoom screen with great video quality. So you really can enjoy Netflix together.
If you choose to watch Netflix on Zoom you are able to do this from many different devices including Windows PC, mobile devices, and your Smart TV. Basically, if you are able to log in to the Zoom app and Netflix or the Netflix app then you are good to go!
This is one of the easiest ways to screen share Netflix on Zoom:
Open the Netflix app or the Netflix website on Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or another browser window.
Keep the Netflix window open and open the Zoom app.
Create a Zoom meeting and invite your friends into the Zoom call.
Once you are on the Zoom meeting screen and everyone is in the call click on ‘share screen’. This will cause a pop-up to open showing your Netflix app and other apps that are open.
Check the boxes at the bottom of the pop-up which say ‘share computer sound’ and ‘Optimize Screen share for Video Clip’.
Click the screen you want to share and click share.
Now you just need to choose which Netflix movie you want to watch in the Netflix app and start streaming!
If you want to pause the movie or pause screen sharing this is possible so that you can sort something on your laptop without the whole call seeing!
Don’t have your laptop with you and want to stream Netflix on Zoom on your mobile devices? Easily done!
Tap to open the Zoom app on your mobile device
Start a meeting and invite your friends to join the call
Tap on the Share button at the bottom of the app and select “share screen”. This will allow everyone in the call to see everything going on on your phone. To avoid potentially awkward moments and so that people cannot see your notifications consider using do not disturb mode!
Tap on start broadcast. Zoom will ask you to confirm that you want it to display over other apps. Once you have done this you will start to share screens with everyone in the call.
Open the Netflix app and you can start to stream Netflix on Zoom. Enjoy your movie night!
If you want to do anything in Zoom the Zoom controls will be on your screen at all times so you don’t even need to reopen the Zoom app.
Sometimes when streaming Netflix together on Zoom you might encounter the Netflix black screen issue. This means that when you initiate the stream you get a black screen instead.
This is nothing to worry about it is just due to the fact that the Digital Rights Management system has measures in place to stop people from sharing data streams that go against the Netflix usage policy or copyright measures.
The black screen issue can be fixed quite easily, so the movie night is not off if this does happen:
Open the Zoom client desktop and click on the settings page
Click onto video and then advanced settings.
Make sure under the title ‘Use hardware acceleration for’ none of the three boxes are checked. These boxes should say ‘video processing’, ‘receiving video’ and ‘sending video’. Once you are able to disable hardware acceleration the black screen should go away.
The way to have a Netflix streaming party that does not involve streaming Netflix through Zoom is for everyone to have access to a Netflix account and start their stream at exactly the same time, and then call on the side.
This usually ends up meaning that everyone watches the movie at a slightly different speed and is definitely less slick than watching Netflix together on Zoom. However, it is a slightly less technical alternative to streaming through the Zoom app.
Netflix offers a number of different plans depending on your streaming service needs:
The Netflix Basic plan costs $9.99 per month and allows access to one stream at a time and downloads onto one device.
The Netflix Standard plan costs $15.49 per month and allows two simultaneous streams and downloads on up to two different devices. Watch this in HD audio and video where available
The Premium Netflix plan costs $19.99 per month and allows simultaneous streams and downloads on up to four devices. Where available you can watch this in Ultra HD.
Looking to save money on your Netflix account? Why not try account sharing? When you share your Netflix account you can share the cost of a subscription between four users, meaning you pay only a quarter of the costs.
