I'm new. This is my second post.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 and am trying to get the hang on things. Having a hard time with the language. Anyway I'm trying to do everything with Ubuntu and found that Netflix streaming does not work. All the threads I found were old, so, is there a work around this?
Netflix does not support Linux. You'll need Windows or Mac OS (either as a dual boot or running in a virtual machine) to watch Netflix Streaming. I've observed that a lot of Linux users on the forums purchase an inexpensive device such as the Roku for their Netflix needs.
Netflix does not support Linux. It relies on SilverLight, a proprietary technology developed by Micro$oft. The website will offer a Linux plugin called Moonlight, but it's a sham, doesn't really function at all.
