If you watch Netflix video on your PC or Mac, you might have already noticed that Netflix has made some changes to its web video player.

The changes were made to refresh the look of existing features, and add some new functionality. Some of its new features include...

  • The size of the controls now scales, making it easier to use the player on large screens, for example if you connect your computer to your TV
  • Similarly, the player will scale down to smaller windows, which is useful if you want to watch something while working in another window. Also, the video now stretches to the full window in the browser
  • Full screen mode now has all the features of browser mode so you can view season/episode information and change to the next episode when watching a TV show
  • Pausing the video now shows more information about the title
The "Back to Browse" option has been moved up to the top-left of the screen too, after previously sitting at the bottom right. Controls have been consolidated into one line using the new player.
