Netflix in Firefox on Linux?
Is anyone streaming movies from Netflix and watching them in Firefox on Linux?
Of course it would be helpful if Netflix would speak up and state the requirements for their service. But if they have, I haven't found it anywhere.

So far as I know, it is still not a workable alternative.
If that's wrong, I do hope someone will speak up because I'd like to have that option as well.oz

I was looking into this for another poster a couple of weeks ago.
There are still no plans for extending SilverLight support to Linux.

Moonlight is an alternative to Silverlight, and it runs native on Linux.
But NetFlix is steeped in DRM's, and it will not run on anything but Silverlight.
The only workarounds I've found are to run Windows in a VM. Nothing great about that

I found a video on youtube that shows how to get netflix working with linux but I used Chrome to do it. You should go to youtube and look for the video by Nixie Pixel. I followed her commands in the command line and it worked just fine.
Hope this helped you all.
