How to Add a Button to Netflix That Serves Up Random Videos

Darren Orf Aug 18, 2017. 8 comments

We’ve all been there. Endlessly searching, and searching, and searching for something to watch on Netflix. Ugh, do I really want to watch Stranger Things a third time?

Of course, you’re going to find lots of garbage, but it at least gives you another way of finding that next Netflix obsession.
