Ah. Didn't even know netflix did that. Unfortunately, I don't have an
account and signing up for a free one is a bit beyond how far I'll
personally go to help (sorry).

You may be running into a DRM issue, though. I don't expect totem would
be able to decrypt DRM protected media files (if in fact, that's what
netflix is using).
