netflix on plex

plugin-dev

#1

need plugin
why is it I still have to rely on windows xp for some things?

there is a media server on the windows side called playon...

I use vmware fusion to emulate windows xp as a virtual operating system...

then I install the playon media server.... switch over to my mac.... crank up plex....

then add the appropriate upnp sources...

when hulu was screwed up here... I was watching hulu and netflix using plex on my mac side...

only thing is I don't like having to boot up xp...

and playon is only a 14 day trial... then they want $50.00 to register it...

if things could get right on plex I wouldn't have to use xp...

don't get me wrong... I enjoy plex for watching video....

to me.... it's sorely lacking on the audio side... not too friendly to use.... nothing comparable to itunes...



anyway.... now that I have said all that....



can someone/anyone make a plugin for netflix and get the hulu login squared away so I can use it all natively on my macintosh....

Netflix is already in development. You can always check the wiki to see what plug-ins are currently being worked on.

Thanks for the reply....

I'll keep an eye on the netflix plugin...

granted... netflix now supports the mac for instant play but the video looks so much better through plex...
