Does anyone have any comments on Netflix performance?
I cant see stream quality but it looks like its 1080p (better than I was getting on firefox, 720p).
However I have an issue where playback sometimes slows down to less than 1fps, and I need to rewind or fast forward a little to get normal playback speed and audio back.
Anyone else running into this issue?
I'm runnin 126.96.36.199. Have some edge extensions running (Bitwarden, ublock origin (disable on netflix domain) and tampermonkey (no scripts for netflix), and 1 chrome extension (darkreader, but disabled on netflix)

I mean I may be prohibited from uploading it anywhere if there is any copyrighted information in the screenshot. However I noticed that the video blacks out when I take a screenshot which is good.
Yes there is an app for windows 10, which is **bleep**, and about 12 other browsers that work fine.
Its a topic about experiences with the new chromium edge, not trying to get netfix to work.

I am also having issues with Netflix and globoplay.com (brazilian VOD). The playback gets "glitchy" sometimes and the video sometimes freezes.

Will definately do!
I have done it twice already, I got an automated reply. Unfortunately I didn't get a ticket number or anything to help you find the feedback/telemetry in the MSFT system.
Something else I noticed whist using the Netflix telemetry; Sometimes it keeps dropping frames and I don't notice anything in the playback. Sometimes when the the playback "breaks" it doesn't report any dropped frames.

Just tested Netflix, I don't have the 4K package but it does play the video at the 1080 resolution which is higher than is currently available in other browsers. I am running Version 188.8.131.52 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

There are some other issues i figured out.

I have been submitting a lot of feedback in regards to this issue.
However I do not get any tickets to follow up on them.
Is there any progress on this issue? are you able to reproduce it?
I am still having the issues with Version 184.108.40.206.
I have tried completely removing Edge Chromium, but to no avail.
I'm not having this issue with the regular Edge, or Chrome/Firefox (using different DRM)

Ok, so small update;
I have disabeled in the Edge://flags #edge-playready-hevcdecodingexperiment-win10
I don't know what the "default" entails, however I set it to "disabled" yesterday (but kept Playready DRM enabeled!) and had no issues in playback since. I will trail some more this evening. It is still playing in 1080p on my 1080p screen, can't check 4k since I don't have a 4k display.
What is the behavior like when it is set to"default"? is it enabled at all sites that use playready? or just on Netflix? I don't think I use any other services that use playready, which kind of explains why I have no issues with fullHD/4k streaming on any other websites (Vimeo, Youtube, F1TV, etc). The subtitles still stick sometimes, but that is not quite consistent enough to do any trail and error.
So I tried again this evening, and it craps out again after about 5 minutes. So it didn't help. I was just lucky yesterday.

I'm still having similar issues with dropped frames (a 30 FPS movie is playing like a 10 FPS movie).
I also don't have the 4K package, so it's still an issue with 1080p streams.
This is Chromium Edge Dev Version 220.127.116.11 (Official build) dev (64-bit) and this bug has existed at least since the previous build, 18.104.22.168. Windows 10 Pro x64 1803 (17134.885).
Anyone else seeing this?
