Request plugin for netflix   

Postby Snipermeister » Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:51 am

Hi

As WD TV Live doesn´t have netflix (At least mine hasn´t - Europe version), maybe it´s possible for someone to develope a plugin for Netflix?

Best Regards

Sure, whenever netflix will allow you to download their content via HTTP requests I'm sure it will be a breeze. Until then, I wouldn't dream of it.

That's because they use a browser with silverlight to get the content. Running a browser on the wdtv is very difficult (but somebody managed to pull it off), but running silverlight? ... on the 5th of never, as b-rad said...

In order to get Netflix Watch Instantly working in XBMC you just need to have XBMC 10.0+ installed on Windows or OS X. Because of a lack of Silverlight support, this currently does not work on XBMC Live, Linux, or iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, AppleTV). You also need to live in a region that offers Netflix streaming (currently US and Canada).

I recently gave PlayOn Media Server another try (they were allowing free trials again) and can confirm that you can watch Netflix on a WDTV Live via DLNA. Probably the only way it will ever be possible (via DLNA).
