When you watch Netflix from your computer or laptop, it is automatically sent to your Trakt.tv account.
If you watch Netflix from a smartphone, chromecast or other devices, you can sync your history any time you want.
❌ This is guaranteed to work using Netflix in English. I haven't tested with other languages, but full support is on my plans to next versions.
❌ After the movie/episode finishes, please click in Back to Browse, Netflix home, next episode or something. If you just close the browser it will probably doesn't work.
❌ For the episode to be set as "watched" on Trakt, the progress must be 80% or greater. If you find a movie/episode that have long credits, please report to me.
❌ In order to discover what movie/episode you're watching I need to search for the title on Trakt.tv. The shows need to have a seson on the title eg: How I Met Your Mother: S7:E3 "Ducky Tie" in order to work.
❌ The scrobble feature will not work if you're watching with a chromecast. Please use the history sync in this case.
