    Default Netflix Error N8156-6022 in openSUSE 13.1 64bit

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums here so I hope this is the correct area to post this issue. I've tried installing Netflix via software.opensuse.org: and I got the N8156-6022 error. It's an internet connection error but my connection is working fine for everything else. I've tried reinstalling with no luck. I'm on a 64bit machine with Intel HD Graphics 4000. Other than that, openSUSE 13.1 has been awesome, and in my opinion, trumps all of the other distros I've tried. =P Thanks in advance!

    Netflix uses the MS silverlight protocol which of course is not a free and open standard. There is a package called moonlight that may work. Also one called pipelight which may be better.

    Have a look here

    Netflix Comes To Linux Web Browsers Via 'Pipelight' - Slashdot

    in short, Netflix does not work with moonlight but does work with pipelight.

    However, silverlight days at Netflix are numbered as it is (at some undisclosed time) switching everything to HTML5

    Thanks for the replies, guys! I've tried using pipelight when you guys had suggested it, but even though it says it's enabled in the browser (firefox), it switches to a page that says I have the wrong OS instead of playing the video. I also opened firefox through the terminal so I could report the error but all it says when I run it is (process:23000): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

    I thank you very much for your suggestions and for a good first experience here on the forums =)

    I wasn't able to get Netflix running in OpenSUSE, either, and sadly, that's the reason I left to go back to Ubuntu/Mint. It's simple to install the the Compholio Netflix-Desktop in a debian based distro (Netflix Desktop), but it's not on OpenSUSE. If you, or anyone else gets working, step-by-step directions to do so on OpenSUSE with success, that would be great, as I'd really like to use OpenSUSE as my primary desktop.

    Since I'm a dual-booter, it's not a huge issue that it isn't working, but it would bring me one step closer to going exclusively Linux. You're right about Debian based distros, in my experience. Netflix works well in Ubuntu/Mint and even in Manjaro (which is based on Arch). I'll reply here if I ever do get it working, but in the meantime, I'll be writing Netflix a letter requesting a native client for Linux haha.

    Actually I had to use a few workarounds to get pipelight to work in opensuse and they are quite easy to do.
    After installing pipelight and getting silverlight installed you need a user agent spoofer for it to work and identify as a windows browser to bypass.
    For firefox there is this extension:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...ent-overrider/

    for chrome just search for user agent, there are many good tools there.

    I get the following error when trying to install pipelight:

    Code:

    toshiba-lt:~ # zypper in pipelight
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...

    Problem: nothing provides mingw32-cross-gcc = 4.8.2n needed by
    pipelight-0.1+2+20130818000040-3.9.x86_64
    Solution 1: do not install pipelight-0.1+2+20130818000040-3.9.x86_64
    Solution 2: break pipelight-0.1+2+20130818000040-3.9.x86_64 by
    ignoring some of its dependencies

    Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c):

    ...In that case, Manjaro will be the next Linux OS I give a spin. I dual-booted with Windows for years simply for Netflix, and the day I read about finally being able to get Netflix running in Wine was the day I deleted my Windows partition.

    Someone said that Netflix was moving to html5 which in theory at least should work any where.
