    Netflix streaming via Wii emulator?

    I found a Wii emulator called Dolphin. [Official Site] [Wikipedia]

    I am thinking about trying to use the disk/Netflix app on this to stream movies to Ubuntu. Has anyone tried this?

    Cool! Now I know what to do on rainy days...

    Are there legal ramifications to Dolphin? I see it is being worked on by Google Code, but certainly there must be some patent technicalities?

    According to this thread:

    Dolphin does not (as of June 2010) yet emulate online connectivity functions of the Wii.

    I suspect that would be a very tough nut to crack, since I'm sure the Wii service probably has some sort of gateway function to Netflix (instead of streaming content coming directly from Netflix).

    Right now the killer is being surrounded by a web of deduction, forensic science,
    and the latest in technology such as two-way radios and e-mail.
