Postby jacatone » Sun Dec 23, 2012 3:35 am

I've seen several posts saying you have to install Wine along with Silverlight to play Netflix in LXDE but haven't had much luck gettng it to work. Anyone have a better options? Thanks.

Update: After installing, uninstalling, and removing files a few times, I managed to get everything working. If you’re having trouble, make sure to check out the troubleshooting tips in the iheartubuntu post and in the comments below the article!

Tried all that and still couldn't get it to work. Didn't see Silverlight asking to enable DRM content. I'm using Linux Mint 12 LXDE, maybe it just won't work with that distro.
