Hello ubuntu community

I'm having a hard time watching movies instantly on my computer. I have the

latest version of ubuntu and everything is up to date. when i try to watch a

movie instantly, the page says my operating system is not valid. anyone have

any ideas?

I don't use Netflix anymore, but I believe their streaming service
requires Silverlight, which is a Windows-only player.

Netflix Streaming is not available for Linux at the moment, because of the Silverlight DRM. You could install windows in a virtualbox and run it from that, but that's pretty annoying...

Also-Moonlight will not work as it does not have DRM.
