Has anybody found a workaround to watch Netflix on Ubuntu other than running XP through VirtualBox? At this point my girlfriends fascination with Netflix is the only reason I still use windows for anything. Netflix now supports Chrome OS 13 or higher, and Mac with OS 10.4.11 or later. I have tried Moonlight without success (http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/). Any ideas???

Well, you can guess where this post is going to end, but I'll start with the reason I'm trying Chromium OS: Netflix.As pretty much anyone with a Netflix account (and just about everyone else in the US who isn't living under a rock) knows, the price of their DVD-by-mail service keeps going up, and there appears to be zero plans on making the Silverlight DRM libraries available for Mo
Okay. I finally actually installed Ubuntu 14.04 alongside XP on my laptop yesterday. It's bumpier than I expected (the real install of Ubuntu is different from the test version), but I'm working through it.
Tonight I learned that Netflix Instant Movies blocks Linux systems.
I have been using Netflix for sometime now. Before I got this new computer I was using a 32bit operating system and I was able to get Netflix to run on it with ease, though not at 100% like it did on Windows. Since I am now using a 64bit OS, for some reason I am having a lot of trouble getting Netflix to work. So I just had enough. I could eventually get it to work but I was getting tired of it.
It is now possible to watch Netflix on any Linux system, so long as you run the Chrome browser starting with version 37. This will let you avoid having to use a Wine-based workaround to get the Silverlight plugin to work. More importantly, the latest releases of Chrome block this workaround anyway, so you would have only been able to use Firefox to watch Netflix.
Guys, I've just signed up for a trial account over at Netflix and have a couple of weeks to decide whether or not I want to keep the account. I've looked around online, but couldn't find anything that was obviously better, but perhaps I've missed some other service that should be considered. Do any of you have other recommendations, or is Netflix the way to go?
I'm sure it may be sarcatstically speaking a joy to have a question and plea for help with netflix desktop. Anyhow, here it is, because I think I'm close. I have an older desktop that I leave plugged into my TV for convenience sake, and from it I watch netflix, listen to music etc. Heck, I use it more than my laptop, which is newer and nicer.
