    Although I'm not a Netflix user,

    From what you've posted, IMO there should be a reasonable chance for someone to create a version running in Mono, possibly running in Moonlight. Would theoretically improve performance by running natively without WINE emulation.

    The catch might be Moonlight since it was always somewhat problematic despite promises.

    But, I wonder if Netflix will ever re-build there app since MS deprecated Silverlight years ago, at some point the technology will die a final death.

    From what I have read, Moonlight fails with DRM-protected material.

    No chance, because of the DRM requirements Netflix has.

    They've recently announced support for HTML5, though the DRM requirement
    still is in place.

    Yes, it looks like this Netflix HTML5 player is breaking news, within the past 6 days or so as I am posting.

    Based on a quick cursory search,

    - Officially, this Netflix Player is supported running only on IE 11 on Win8.1 (blue) (aka unofficial service pack). Is based on a <proposed> W3C set of "Premium Multimedia Extensions" which is composed of 3 DRM related technologies largely developed by Microsoft (would make sense if Netflix is using Silverlight and Windows DRM).

    - But, <unofficially> I found that Chrome "Canary" (which is indeed installable on openSUSE and other Linux) is supposed to include these same extensions. Remains to be seen whether you can run the Netflix Player on Linux . People who do bleeding edge web coding and browser development know that Canary is Chrome's Alpha project/release. If anyone believes that Chromium (often aka "Chrome Beta" or the Open Source testing ground for mainstream Chrome) is an adventure, the adventures aren't anything like what you'll find in Canary both good and bad. But...

    -- Chromebook supposedly officially supports the Premium Multimedia Extensions (!). If that's not a mis-print, it's surprising but noteworthy if Google feels the implementation is stable enough to deploy mainstream...

    By all accounts, the new HTML5 Netflix player should be vastly preferred over running the Silverlight version... A major leap in resource usage efficiency, enabling direct access to GPU capabillities (which suspiciously sounds like it might require more than just new browser functionality, may also require new OS functionality as well which would mean Linux isn't supported... but only today).

    Been awhile, but I installed Canary on openSUSE sometime last year.

    Decided to take a few moments to update what is available for Linux.
    Sadly, yes it appears that no <official> Canary <Builds> are available for Linux today.

    But,
    It looks like you can get an "on demand" build for Linux from daily source, there is a link on this page
    Chrome Canary for Developers - Paul Irish

    Of course, no one will be willing to call your custom build "Canary" and a daily build is even more risky than an Alpha Build, but if that's what you're willing to experience...

    Have not tried the link, and does not fit into my current needs... but if anyone is interested...
