Submission + - Netflix Comes To Linux Web Browsers Via "Pipelight" (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: With Netflix continuing to rely upon Microsoft Silverlight, the video streaming service hasn't been supported for Linux users as the Mono-based "Moonlight" implementation goes without Netflix support. However, there is now Netflix support for Linux-based web-browsers via the open-source Pipelight project. Pipelight supports Netflix and other Silverlight-based web applications by having a Netscape plug-in that in turn communicates with a Windows program running under Wine. The Windows program then simulates a browser to load the Silverlight libraries. Netflix then works as the Pipelight developers implemented support for the Netflix DRM scheme within Wine.
