Googling for a solution yields a ridiculous page on eHow that instructs to insert a DVD from Netflix.
But I am not interested in the DVD option. I am only interested in streaming and unfortunately none of my browsers (IE, FF, Chrome) uses the hardware acceleration built into my video card.
The only way I can play non-choppy video on my PC is via Windows Media Player, but WMP doesn't list Netflix as one of the supported online stores for some reason.
Any idea or trick how stream Netflix on WMP 11 instead of a browser?
Update: I found another eHow page, this time more promising, on How to Stream Netflix With Windows Media Player on XP. But that doesn't help me, because step #4 instructs to "Click on "Movies" and then the "Watch Instantly Netflix" link" and there is no "Movies" on my WMP11. Is this article bogus (like the comment at the bottom of the articles says)?
