    ~Twice a year, which is about as often as the next round of rumors surface about NetFlix finally supporting Linux.

    So wouldn't that mean you call them biannually, not semiannually?

    Semi = half
    Bi = two

    Sorry about my absence. Has anyone done anything that might be considered progress?

    Well you can forget the supposed support, those Developers dont even work at Netflix anymore... I Awesume the project was scrapped...

    ----

    Whats the progress note on the plugin?

    Useragent string changes are specifying that, if the plugin is present, it should work.

    I wouldn't hold your breath. Netflix just doesn't see a market so they don't care.

    The best hope for this is the announcement that a soon to be future kernel will support android apps natively. (Not through an Android AVD which works but resolution sucks)
    I have been saying this for some time - there is an Android Netflix app - HELLO??? - how hard can it be to get that to work natively.

    Well Android doesn't use X (The windowing system on every linux distro). So that's kind of a big deal. Lots of things like digital rights management would need reworking too I'd imagine. Really Android and Linux as its known on the desktop are not that similar.

    Well it's been about 6 months since the last post, and we still don't have Netflix on our Linux OS. Today I see Netflix has made some improvements for Android Netflix app: http://www.slashgear.com/netflix-for...date-24248975/
    I can watch Netflix videos on my Sony Blu-Ray, Roku, and Windows but I am afraid it will be a cold day in "H" before I can do it on my Ubuntu.
