I'd like to be able to watch entire seasons of shows on Netflix and not have it close out if I happen to doze. Netflix requires an acknowledgement that you're there every once in awhile between episodes. Is there any way to set up the Netflix Desktop to do this? It's kind of a pain in the a$$...
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.
Anyone that uses netflix? After installing Ubuntu 11 no extras, netflix played movies just fine. I'm thinking there was an update or something and it no longer will play. Says I need windows. This just started a couple weeks or so ago. Anyone got an answer for me on this one. Looking online all I get is netflix has not worked on linux but they are working on it...
Netflix till date has very bad support, actually no support, for streaming in Linux systems. The core issue was the use of Microsofts dying Silverlight by Netflix, but Netflix announced their plans to move to HTML5.
Hey everyone, new to the community! Hopefully someone out there can help me with this. Since I have updated my galaxy tab 2 to Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (not the full 4.2 for some reason) Netflix streaming no longer works. Netflix thinks it is either a device problem or my internet signal isn't strong enough (that sounds like a load of crap).
The script to install Netflix-Desktop downloaded everything needed except for Firefox. I keep trying to remove the program through "sudo apt-get remove --purge netflix-desktop". However, when I reinstall Netflix-desktop it runs through the script as if it's already downloaded everything. I've removed .wine-browser and /usr/share/netflix-desktop.
Has anybody found a workaround to watch Netflix on Ubuntu other than running Windows 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 OS 10.4.11 or later. I have tried Moonlight without success.
