    Default Netflix streaming

    Are there any tricks anyone knows of, aside from installing wine, to get the netflix instant watch to work?

    i can only guess that running ms-windows in a VM would also work...but
    i AM guessing...i prefer to not buy from merchants that try to force
    me to buy a M$ license to use their stuff..

    if you know for sure that WINE works, then use it...my rule "Use what
    works."

    WINE is a snap to install....of course, after that then it kinda runs
    like ms-windows (so you know what to expect, right?)

    See this thread.

    netflix question

    Contact Netflix and request that they support your operating system.

    WINE does not work, have to use a VM (i suggest virtualbox)...

    until Netflix decides to support linux this unfortunately is your only choice.
