Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!




Is anyone aware of a program I can use so I can watch Netflix on Ubuntu, or Fedora 11, or Centos 5.4?

I would like to watch movies on the go, or when the kids take over the TV... so far I have found nothing that will work. My skill level on Linux is average..Linux Admin 1 and Linux Admin 2.

I think it is these little issues that is standing in the way of Linux from advancing in the Market place, the lack of product support from companies like Netflix, Blockbuster, Turbo-Tax..

    I have not attempted to run the Netflix application through Wine yet because of my fear of a highly potential reliance on windows and flash based DRM that should be used for the transmission. You can attempt to install it on your system using wine, however if if relies on windows DRM libraries then it just may not work.

    But it is worth trying, so I will check it out in the next few days.
