Re: Netflix on #! soon?

From that article:

Something as native as possible...Microsoft Silverlight working in WINE

Still not anywhere close to native IMHO; "native", to me, means not requiring a compatibility layer.

Only thing that would approach native would be if the Microsoft Silverlight DRM were to find its way into Moonlight.  We know when that's gonna happen, "and the Devil says it never snows." roll

Re: Netflix on #! soon?

This is worth keeping an eye on.
It looks to be in the PPA testing stage.. and will run like a standalone app.
It won't be long before it is ported. In my opinion using wine to run silverlight is a better solution then running windows in a virtual environment just to watch netflix.

Perhaps a better solution is to switch to Amazon's VOD service - which does include support for Linux - and encourage them to build a library that can compete with Netflix? wink  Netflix probably won't even try to compete for us as consumers so long as they consider themselves the only game in town.

Competition is a healthy thing.

Yes I completely agree.
But I think that as long as MS has an influential hand within Netflix..  A Linux friendly DRM will not happen.

^ Probable. neutral

By the way, I does occur to me that my previous post in this thread is an example of this, and I apologize for it. ops

No offense taken pvsage    smile
I do agree that using wine as a layer seems redundant, but it does give us linux netflix subscribers one less reason to fire up our window$ partition.   big_smile

Re: Netflix on #! soon?

This is for ubuntu, not debian sad Was disappointed to see it is through wine also. I still prefer to experiment with other free streaming services, like 1channel.ch, icefilms, etc., through rasbmc.

I got Netflix working on #! via this method. big_smile It's a bit jerky at times but that's probably just my machine being temperamental. Worth a go if you're paying $8 a month and don't want to keep Windows around.

Were there any extra steps you had to do? Or did you just add the ppa and run it?

Re: Netflix on #! soon?

I followed a guide on this forum for Netflix on #! and it seemed to work like a dream (I didn't set it up for me though).  From what I remember, it involved installing multi-arch shizzle and some other thing with ppa's etc.  I think it involved 32 bit wine and installing winblows Firefox with Silverlight, but I can't remember the details.  A little bit of searching should sort you out.  Ah what the hell: I'm pretty sure it was this link.

I got it working in 64 bit by following the instructions here:   http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 92#p281492
Of particular importance for the 64 bit version is the 18th post down in the thread:

JLloyd13 wrote:

no problem. I was stuck on this for some time myself. for those wondering how exactly to add an arch to dpkg just type this in a terminal

su -c 'dpkg --add-architecture i386'

multi arch is probably something good to have anyway, although be mindful that it will download a lot of 32-bit libs on first run (if you want to fetch these libs for a different reason the ia32-libs package should pull most needed ones in) 

also farther above in this thread there was someone who said he used the oneiric repos because 64-bit wasn't in the latest ones, that could also work for some people although it didn't for me (I still had to enable i386)

It probably wouldn't hurt to read the entire thread if you have the time, but this one step did it for me in 64 bit Waldorf.  Thanks to JLloyd13.
