Netflix Hates My HDMI Dongle

Warning: This post is over 365 days old. The information may be out of date.

Just a warning to anybody trying to mirror Netflix using Apple’s Digital AV to Lightning adapter: it won’t work.

(There used to be a tweet embedded here but it’s gone as I deleted my account.)

Thanks, Netflix DRM!


The Netflix CS team sent me a couple of replies since the initial tweet. In case you’re wondering what the Netflix team did, mostly nothing at this point. They contacted me via Twitter DM and told me they are “investigating,” and that they had forwarded my “report” to the “Research Team.” I haven’t heard back from them as of writing this (May 20th, 2022). I will update this post accordingly if I hear back from them.
