There’s a free Google Chrome extension called “Netflix
Flip
” that lets you rotate your Netflix videos so you can watch
them more comfortably in bed when you’re lying on your side. 

“Netflix Flip” is a tiny extension that won’t take up any space
or make your computer run any slower. Its one job is literally just
flipping Netflix videos.

You can even rotate videos at different angles, whether you want
them slightly rotated, fully vertical, or even upside down.

There are some downsides, however, but it’s pretty easy to get
over them.

For one, clicking somewhere on the video’s timeline is basically
impossible. I tried clicking at different points on a timeline, and
I was brought to completely different parts of the video. The
remedy to this is to simply press the left or right arrow keys on
your laptop to rewind or fast forward.

The other downside is that you can’t click the full-screen
button for the video, at least on a Windows 10 laptop I was using
to try this extension out. To make your video full screen, you have
to press “Control + F” on Windows, or “Command + F” on macOS
laptops. 

And perhaps the biggest downside is that the video’s size is
dramatically reduced when you flip it vertically. The Netflix Flip
extension lets you zoom in to the video to counter the smaller
video size when you flip it, but you’d still be cutting off the
edges of the video with that method.

For the side sleepers looking to watch movies and TV shows on
Netflix in bed, this is perhaps a small price to pay.
