It is still based on that M$ junk, but shouldn't Mac emulators allow linux viewing?

Its based on silver light, so we shouldnt have to make an emulator to make it work. All we should have to do is get moonlight to work... Right now the moonlight binaries don't include multimedia playback, so netflix won't work on Linux until we are able to get multimedia play back codecs from Microsoft... and yeah I have tried
edit:
Here is a bit more info on the matter.

it looks like ffmpeg is developing them, so I guess we don't need Microsoft.
