    In step 1, clicking on "openSUSE" takes you to the link I previously
    which contains the first four commands. Which first command you choose
    depends on which release you are running. So, for 13.2 you run:
    zypper ar --refresh
    Instead of that, you could, of course, add the repository via YaST.

    Next, you run the three commands listed below "Afterwards install the
    necessary packages (run as root user):"

    Finally, click on the link "enable the plugins" below those, taking you
    back to section 2 of the opening link and the fifth command, "sudo
    pipelight-plugin --enable pluginname", where, in this case,
    "pluginname" is "silverlight"

    Hope that clarifies things a bit.

    Thumbs up Re: Netflix on OpenSuse

    I finally got Chrome install and it plays Netflix out of the box as discribed.
    I was expecting once the download complete for it to auto install. Instead I received an error message stating that backend not supported. I had to go to the download folder of firefox and run the installer from there. It installed everything needed and now I can watch Sparticus!!!

    That is a known problem with the installer. You can use the rpm command directly to install
