Maybe I'm late to the party but on December 17, 2015 Netflix unveiled its HTML5 player with support for Chrome and Mozilla on Windows and Mac. One would think that while not supported, the player would load and work on any or most Linux releases. Firefox 38 is out there. Not the case.

I took the time and called Netflix to find out what they had, and a nice guy, John, let me know that since Linux is so customizable they aren't supporting it. These were the words of the engineers. John says give them time, but really! Now, okay, I understand, but what is it that triggers the browser to not load the player? I don't know. As someone looking forward for the HTML5 player release, this is a big let down. I figured while maybe not supported the player would work vs being sent to a System Requirements page.

Is there a distro that someone has found the HTML5 player working on? Doubtful but thought I would ask around.

Today we're excited to announce the availability of our HTML5 player in Firefox! Windows support is rolling out this week, and OS X support will roll out next year. Firefox ships with the very latest versions of the HTML5 Premium Video Extensions. That includes the Media Source Extensions (MSE), ...

+Luke Jones I agree and thought this would be true, but it is not the case with Netflix. I haven't taken the time, but something tells the browser not to load the player and go to a System Requirements page.

Hey y'all. Found a weird bug today when updating to Java 8. Wondering if anyone else has seen it recently and worked around it. Running CentOS 6.6, updated the system JDK 1.8 and the javaws link in /usr/bin is no longer there. Can't link it in alternatives. Not sure why. I found a bugzilla report for RHEL, but no real fix. Anyone noticed this anywhere else yet? This is a Java problem, I know. I have only found the problem when installing on Linux though. The JAVA_HOME and path on Windows works fine with 1.8.

Installing Debian Jessie. Trying to Configure the package manager but all of the mirrors are coming back as not supporting Jessie. Any one run into this before? Doesn't make sense to me, even when using the ftp.us.debian.org. They have a directory for Jessie there, so....Help Requested! I'll be over here reading the whole internet now.

What I really wonder about is whether crappy products we are forced to use have the same issue...I'm looking at you crappy Xfinity Wireless Router. 8(

IF so they may never be patched or reported on.
Read our Heartbleed defense primer? Good, but the fight for your privacy isn't over just yet: you might have to replace your router, too. Cisco Systems

I tried to pay attention, I'll have to watch again. What is this Dump swing shirt. I must understand. I'll be standing by without sleep until someone explains. Thanks.
