When I started researching how to get Netflix to work with Ubuntu everything I saw pointed me to the Netflix-Desktop app. When I looked in to this app, it seemed to me (a relative novice) that it was just Wine with Firefox and Silverlight installed. However, I tried installing FireFox and Silverlight in Wine and Netflix does not work.
So is there some magic going on in Netflix-desktop that I don't understand, or maybe I'm just missing something?
I know there are a million questions about Netflix on Ubuntu, but none of them seem to exlpain much. They just say "Install Netflix-Desktop" which is fine, but I would like to understand a little more.
