    Hopefully, this project will improve over time, or Netflix might actually release a Linux client at some point.
    A wide variety of variables, not all related to power, appear to be at play. On my older HP 32 bit, Intel driven, laptop, the performance of the Netflix-Desktop is every bit as good as the Windows side. However, on my much more powerful 64 bit, Radeon driven 1080p VAIO, the performance is slower than the windows side and worse than on the much older and slower HP.

    Thanks Man, I got distracted and let it be, then an update from the PPA did the silverlight upgrade for me.
    I'll just let the system updates take care of things in the future.

    Money.

    It would be nice if the desktop could be minimized. I only see an "X" to exit. Maybe I'm missing it.

    alt +v key then you can put in missing tool-navigation bars.
    You can also update firefox from the about help menu.
    And , you can delete the white round X in firefox add ons.

    frame rates, interesting talk about 24 vs 48 frames per second

    http://techland.time.com/2012/12/06/...?iid=obnetwork

    some example showing this effect, which sometimes is very visible in Netflix. Something I have NOT noticed on Amazon prime or Hulu or youtube or even cbs on the net.

    Netflix seems to have the noticeable judder, sometimes only tiny, sometimes a lot, which I have seen so bad sometimes I cant even stand to watch. And I find it very annoying that this happens. So I wonder what is different about netflix.
    It might have something to do with interpolation where software fills in generating extra frames. And then I hear that dedicated player hardware, people say does not show the juddering. So then you can blame the software.

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    I installed this on 13.04 today and it seems to work, though I really haven't spent much time with it. Just loaded it and went to silverlight site that I visit, and silverlight worked.

    But, I can't get it out of full-screen mode. Can someone help me with that?

    Never mind. Found it. F11

    BTW, to use the browser Alt+D gives you a drop down menu.

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    I'm using Wubi, and thus my filesystem is NTFS. How can I set the user_xattr property? My root disk doesn't even appear in FSTAB. I think it's provided by NTFS-3g, but I can't work out how to change the flags on it.

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    Think we could get this working in a modified version of XBMCFlix?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clue
