Netflix lags on 1080p videos

I installed Netflix addon on MxqPro 4k. It works, but 1080p videos are huge lag. I noticed 100% cpu load while playing so I suspect no hw decoding. But video is h264, so this is confusing.

Is there any workaround for that?

As Far as I am aware NETFLIX is software decoded due to DRM so 720P is your Limit

But I can’t even force 720p. Most content is 1080p.

Well, now it’s clear:

Big shame for Netflix
