Netflix - Ubuntu


Well i bought the bundle basicly because Netflix, cant run in linux systems, i have no idea why, anyways its suposed to work on chrome, so i tried to emulate it, and i couldnt run my Netflix, i belive some file should be missing or im doing something wrong, i thought to post the issue, you guys should know better than me.


I'm sorry to say this, but Crossover can't help you with this. Crossover does not properly run the Silverlight player, which is necessary for Netflix. The primary issue is DRM (Digital Rights Management), which is both legally and technically very tricky, so the hands of the Wine developers (and the Moonlight people) are tied at this time.

Best thing you can do is give netflix a call and let them know you use linux and ask them to support it. Eventually with enough linux people asking them to support it they just might drop silverlight and make it usable on linux natively.

I just done the exact same thing Mate..... ( Only reason for use of any window$ apps )
That's ok, glad to support codeweavers and thier efforts.


PS. Still working on getting winow$ Boxee to work, if it does, it should play netflix. ( In theory )
