I am getting Error message This web page has a redirect loop on Chromium when I want to watch a movie on Netflix (the home page works very well, it is just the video player)

I followed the instructions into clearing the Cookies from Chromium Settings and using BleachBit, but I still receive that error.

I am using Ubuntu 15.04 but the same problem occurs on 12.04

I searched for a solution everywhere without success. Any hint is well welcomed.

  • Are you trying to access netflix from the same location where you registered?

  • Yes, I register on Netflix, then click on a random movie on that same page, just to check if it works, but I get that error.
