- Is there a way to stream Netflix? 7 answers
I want to play my Netflix with my Ubuntu 12.04 but before I download the player and screw something up I thought I would ask. I have not done anything yet.
Netflix does not natively work on Linux; There is however an app which runs through Wine called Netflix Desktop http://www.compholio.com/netflix-desktop/ Follow the instructions to download and install the program and watch movies/shows/etc.
Netflix, by default, will not work on Linux operating systems and it utilizes Silverlight technology which isn't available on Ubuntu. You can install Netflix Desktop through WINE or you can use virtual machines but the performance is not nearly as good as other machines.
Here's the Netflix Desktop link
or you can (possibly) use PlayOnLinux:
