y'all ready for this?TRUELY NATIVE NETFLIX VIEWING IS NOW AVAILABLE
(granted, there are a couple hoops to jump through).Step 1:
Get Chrome. I'm using the v38 unstable version, but I assume it works on v37 beta (I use Firefox mainly, but chrome is the only browser aside from IE that has what is needed)Step 2:
Get the User-Agent Switcher for chrome:
add a custom Chrome agent for v37 Windows x86_64:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2049.0 Safari/537.36Step 4:
Switch your user-agent to the new custom one, and go to netflixStep 5:
Why this works: Chrome (and IE) devs have been working closely with Netflix to get the needed DRM code required for HTML5 streaming, and recently Netflix unveiled that both IE and Chrome on Windows supports HTML5 streaming now.
I figured that the Linux version of Chrome is close enough to the Windows version to ALSO contain this code, so I decided to try it out. And I was right!
