[RELEASE] NetfliXBMC - Unofficial Netflix Add-on (Win/OSX/Linux)
Hey,
Netflix is finally available here in Germany! Big Grin
So I fixed/changed a lot. The HTML5 Player is now used. It was mainly necessary because of the forced PIN protection for FSK18 videos in germany - which could not be deactivated.
Entering the PIN via the Silverlight player was not possible in fullscreen mode via remote. So I had to switch to the HTML5 Player. Of course, this also has some other advantages.
The best things are: Playback is starting much faster, 1080p is supported and it's natively working without Silverlight (Wine/Pipelight)...

But - IMPORTANT: Chrome >=38 is required for NetfliXBMC >=1.3.0 on all platforms for playback. Currently only available as beta. Under Win 8.1 it's also possible to use IExplorer. Linux users may need to update libnss (Example for Ubuntu 14.04 - 14.10 users don't need to do anything). A UserAgent-Switcher addon for Chrome is NOT necessary.

NetfliXBMC v1.3.0:
- Fixed "Next page" listing
- Fixed/changed "Viewing Activity"
- Fixed/changed TV genre listing
- Various other bugfixes
- Added german translations
- Added main category: "Suggestions"
- Added progress dialog for listing videos
- Added context menus for browsing similar movies/tvshows
- Changed UserAgent (native support on Linux systems without wine/pipelight)
- Switched to HTML5 Player: Chrome >=38 required (Win/OSX/Linux)

A short playback demo video is available here. Using a MCERemote under Windows.
Please let me know if everything is working fine for you...
