package netflix-desktop

I hear Netflix works under Ubuntu and was wondering if it would be possible to package the "netflix-desktop" it so it also works on VL.  Thanks.

It looks like it just "works" under Ubuntu the the netflix-desktop app.  I've seen a couple of youtube demonstrations so you are saying it's complicated to translate it over to VL?

I'm back now but on vlocity as I've done  a memory upgrade.  Back on the netflix topic - would it be possible to package the ubuntu version of netflix-desktop for VL?  I'm running a couple of distros with that but I still prefer to work on VL if at all possible.

That's not a linux app... It's firefox + MS Silverlight working inside wine.
You're welcome to try that setup, but there is really nothing to package there.
