I'm running Chrome OS on my CR-48. I know Chrome OS doesn't currently support Silverlight and thus doesn't support Netflix but I'd like to give it a shot anyway. What about playing it on my PC and remote accessing the PC to watch it? I currently use ThinVNC for remote access from Chrome OS but it doesn't have any audio support, plus the video refresh rate is pretty slow for watching video. I use Subsonic for media access from my CR-48 but I don't see anyway to get this to work with Netflix since Subsonic only works with files downloaded to my hard drive. Any way I could do this? Thanks for your help!
Your best bet would be to use the Remote Desktop Connection feature built-in to Windows XP and later. Remote Desktop supports remote audio and it's video subsystem works at higher level in the Windows operating system and will offer improved video quality, although it still might not be acceptable for video watching.
You can enable Remote Desktop in the System section of the Control Panel on Windows. The only way to run
By the way, Silverlight does work on Linux (and thus could run on Chrome OS), via the Moonlight application from the Mono project, but Netflix currently doesn't allow their Instant Queue service to run on Linux clients.
