Support Netflix profiles

This would allow the list of separate Netflix profile accounts to be displayed within PlayLater, so you could record from each user's queue. 
Because Netflix tracks recommendations by user/profile, having PlayLater record content messes up recommendations and recently watch lists for the main account. Allow this to be recorded on a per-profile basis.

    This would be an awesome feature, but it's unfortunately not possible right now. Selecting a specific profile isn't possible with the tools Netflix provides. Everything defaults to using the primary profile. We'd like to support profiles if this changes in the future.

    Chris, are you saying the API doesn't support it?  I use another 3rd party program with Netflix that clearly doesn't use my primary profile.  It may "default" to primary as you say above, but I really think it's an option.
