Topic: Netflix Streaming

New here and own my first chumby device.  I'm loving the features of my infocast except it doesn't have Netflix streaming like the dash does.  Any way to port it over? Thanks

Re: Netflix Streaming


Netflix streaming requires a certain level of Digital Rights Management (DRM) that cannot be supported by the processor used by the Infocast.  Even if it did, we'd then have to make the device "closed" from hacking, which Chumby Industries is not inclined to do.

We feel the dash is a currently good choice for people that want both Netflix and Chumby experiences in the same device.

Can you reboot to a web browser and then stream Netflix inside the browser?

Re: Netflix Streaming

No - streaming Netflix in a browser requires the Microsoft Silverlight plugin, which is not supported in Linux.
