If you like watching Netflix on your HTC EVO, then you may not want to update to Gingerbread just yet. It seems that the current update can cause Netflix to bog down.
We’ve seen and heard many users have problems playing videos on Netflix right after they upgraded to the newer Gingerbread.
Netflix has acknowledged the issue. So, we know that it is aware of the problem. However, they haven’t come up with a fix to the bug. Thus, if you’re lucky enough to not have downloaded and updated your OS yet, it may be a good idea to hold off for just a bit more.
So far, we it seems that the Netflix problem has to do with the playback. Everything looks normal when you click on the app. It starts and loads everything like it should. The app will also let you search through the videos to let you choose which one you want to watch.
Once you do, it will seem like everything’s working fine. But, this is where the problem happens. The video just won’t play. This leaves you hanging at the edge waiting for the video to start showing. But it never does.
What we do know is Netflix saying that the problem lies with the Gingerbread update. It also says it’s currently working on a fix. But, there’s no information on when this will actually happen or be released.
