Re: [vox] Netflix And Linux



I was able to get some partial success with ReactOS, but the movies would not play correctly.  Boxee seemed to almost have a workable system but were smacked down by netflix. 

And yes, it is DRM that is missing, not Silverlight.  Mac and Windows have it because they are proprietary systems.

Yeah I hope Netflix will bring Linux support soon. According to random
past ramblings from the moonlight project, moonlight is quite capable of
playing Netflix video. It's only the microsoft DRM component of
silverlight it doesn't have.

For kicks I have tried and failed to just install IE or Firefox with
wine, then add a silverlight plugin. :)
