Howto: Netflix on Ubuntu Linux (32bit and 64bit)

Thanks to the guys over at iheartubuntu, we are now able to play Netflix videos on Linux without virtualization!

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop


An easier way to watch Netflix on Linux is to simply use Pipelight

Pipelight combines the effort by Erich E. Hoover (the Netflix Desktop developer) with a new browser plugin which – unlike Netflix Desktop which requires a Windows version of Firefox to run under Wine -, lets you access services that require Microsoft Silverlight using native Linux web browsers.
