So you can access hidden categories and menus for other users

26 mayo, 2021

With its recent expansion to 130 more countries and at a time when the platform is enjoying great acceptance in Spain, Netflix has become one of the best options for lovers of the seventh art and fans of series. Its (reasonably) extensive catalog –although it varies depending on where we are in the world-, its affordable price and its recommendations constitute some of its virtues.

However, and although the latter usually coincide with your tastes (unless you share your account with several friends in the same profile), sometimes you would like to carry out personalized searches, perhaps the most disastrous service of the utility. To achieve this successfully, nothing like knowing the codes behind each theme, some of which, by the way, disappear from the usual interface. But these are not the only hidden menus of the service streaming.

From VHS to STREAMING everywhere

The hidden codes

Western

Thus, and apart from the keyboard shortcuts that will allow you to speed up the use of Netflix, the tool integrates a series of ciphers and combinations that will give you the opportunity to get more out of it. As for these seconds, there is a collection of veiled categories that you can access by entering a certain numbering in the browser. All you have to do is write the following url in the directional and replace the final part:

  • http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/SUSTITUYEPORELNÚMERO

For example, in the section on Action And if you want to find something as specific as Asian thrillers, add 1365. For westerns, opt for 7700, while if yours are superheroes, martial arts and / or war, type 10118, 8985 and 2125 respectively. You will find suspense with the 43048.

Action

The same thing happens with the rest of the sections. In Anime, thus, you will have the possibility to discriminate between anime for adults (11881), comedies (9302), dramas (452), terror (10695), fantasy (11146) and others. For documentaries, the variety refers to those that deal with sports (180), religion (10005), politics (7018), music (90361), history (5349) and the like.

We find the hidden classification especially useful for content cataloged as “For the entire family”Well, thanks to these figures, the material is organized into age ranges. Write 6796 if your little ones are up to two years old, 6218 if they reach four, 5455 if they are between five and seven, and so on. In the same category, it will be easy for you to search for films based on books (10056), children’s cartoons (11177), Disney (67673) and educational (10659), among others.

sports

The subsections of sports They also deserve a special mention, not only to focus on a specific modality (such as boxing, wrestling, martial arts, soccer, etc.) but also to find movies (4370), documentaries (180), dramas (7243) and other related topics.

The T.V. seriesHowever, and in our opinion, they remain somewhat limited, being able to distinguish only between British (52117), Korean (67879), miniseries (4814), warfare (25804), science and nature (52780), action (10673), comedies (10375), gastronomy and travel (72436) and little else. If you do not want to miss any of these hidden compilations, click here, although we have observed that some do not work (“impossible to load the titles at this moment”, says the error message).

Code

Apart from the commented numbers, there are certain key combinations that will allow you to access hidden Netflix menus, load custom subtitles, view audio and video statistics, alter the bitrate, and troubleshoot performance issues, and so on. These are the most useful shortcuts:

  • Ctrl + Shift + Alt + L: ideal if you want to check the settings you have made in the application.
  • Ctrl + Shift + Alt + T: to load subtitles in .DFXP format. Very useful in series where they are only available in English, for example.
  • Ctrl + Shift + Alt + D (also works with the Q): to show the aforementioned statistics. It includes information, in addition to audio and video, about buffering, bandwidth and bitrate.
  • Ctrl + Shift + Alt + S: it will help us to modify the previous one and the CDN and solve performance errors that are not automatically mitigated.
