In this blog post, we will discuss some tips and tricks that will help improve your Netflix video quality on your Chromebook. We’ll also cover some common problems and how to solve them.

One of the simplest ways to get better Netflix video quality on your Chromebook is to use the Netflix App from the Play Store.

Another thing you’ll want to do to improve video quality is to set the Download quality to “High” within the Netflix app. Also make sure you have the latest version of the app installed. To check if you have the latest Netflix app version, go to the Play Store and click your initial in the top right hand corner, then “Manage apps & devce” and if any apps are pending update click “Update” or “Update all”.

If you’re still having problems with video quality, there are a few other things you can try. One is to adjust your streaming settings. To do this, open Netflix and click on the three lines in the top left corner of the screen. Then select “Settings.”

Under “Streaming Quality,” make sure “Auto” is selected. This will automatically adjust the quality of the video depending on your internet connection speed.

If your plan doesn’t allow downloading, you can also try selecting a different streaming video quality setting. To do this, open Netflix and click on the three lines in the top left corner of the screen. Then select “Settings”, scroll down and select “Video Quality.” Here you can choose from a variety of video quality settings, depending on your internet connection speed.

If you have a slow or unreliable internet connection, we recommend selecting the “Low” or “Medium” quality setting. This will help ensure smooth and uninterrupted streaming without any pixelation or freezing.

If you have a fast and reliable internet connection, you may want to select the “High” or “Very High” quality setting. This will give you the best possible video quality, but it might also cause some buffering and pauses if your internet connection isn’t strong enough.

Finally, if you’re still having problems with Netflix video quality on your Chromebook, try restarting your Chromebook. This will usually fix any minor glitches or problems that might be causing the video quality to degrade.

Note: Widevine Level 1 is required for Netflix to operated in full HD. Most Chromebooks are still limited to Widevine Level 3 and thus not supported by Netflix for full HD content. To check if More -> App Settings -> Playback Specification. If your device says Widevine L3, you’ll be limited in video quality unfortunately until Google and Netflix come up with a better solution for ChromeOS.
