Yeah, I figured out how to get Netflix on Quirky Unicorn a few weeks ago (using Google Chrome 40 from the dev branch) and have been binge-viewing all the Woody Allen films I never went to the movies to see. Annie Hall and Manhattan are great. Midnight in Paris I also thought was great, but it might not appeal to those who don't already know something about famous artists of the 1890's and 1920's. Radio Days and Scoop are watchable. Sleeper and Love and Death, meh.

Also, the Swedish TV detective series Henning Mankel's Wallander is pretty good, if you don't mind English subtitles.

1. I have a COPY of tahr-6.0-CE_PAE frugal installed to a 4GB Flash Drive; typing from it now.
Able to choose if/when to save session changes [during session, and at shutdown/reboot].

2. Just now used the files linked here to install, in order installed as follows:
nss-3.17.3-i686.pet
nspr-4.10.7-i686.pet
google-chrome-39.0.2171.95-i386.pet
Netflix-001.pet

3. It runs just fine, and looks REALLY GOOD; nice and sharp with good color depth on my BENQ flat-screen monitor.
OK to save the changes?

4. I don't yet have a Netflix account, though my son does.
He suggested I make use of his account.
We're at a different physical and IP addresses.
Is it OK to do this?
What are the issues?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.
a. Same as above for Quirky Unicorn [6.1.4 methinks], installed to 8GB Flash Drive.

b. This saves whether I like it or not. Sad

c. When I tried to run Netflix from the menu, it didn't, so searched for the Netflix.desktop file, found the name of the prog it runs is google-chrome, ran that command in a terminal, fould it lacked a depend = /lib/libudev.so.0.
Found libudev10.zip on the forums, unpacked to /lib , renamed symlink libudev.so.1 to libudev.so.0, re-ran the command, Chrome opened asking me to register, which I did.
Re-ran Netflix from menu and it worked. Very Happy

you should be fine, i think "dont quote me on this"as long as netfix isnt being used at more then 3 different locations at the same time there should be no issues but i dont know for a fact this is true i have never tried for fear of losing my account.

if you can afford the low monthly cost i would start my own account.

See this [link provided by Semme in a PM].

"The number of users that can stream at the same time will depend on your Netflix plan. You can see the limit for your account, as well as other plan options, from the Change Plan page."
I'll need to ask him about his plan.

Hope we do not get into trouble but if more than 2 in the same house is SLOW. Which causes the kindles to be kicked off the net. Laughing
I am sure they track the extra IPs and will boot him if it gets excessive. However this time of year with all the holidays they most likely will not act. My Nephew comes over and streams his own netflix on our IP so we will balance you out.
Also its the actual stream at same time, not the number of devices we have multiple smart TVs, videogames, Android and Apple all in the same house with one netflix acct. We even have our own profiles and queues.

Now I need to know...
How to display on our Smart TV, that is connected to our router via Powerline adapters...
Stuff that is being streamed on other devices, such as...
Our Desktop PC running Puppy_Linux->Netflix [or whatever], connected to the router by wire...
And...
My wife's 10-inch Samsung Galaxy running Android, connected wirelessly to router.

She already has on her tablet, a program that allows her to display photographs on the TV, just by displaying them on the tablet, then clicking an icon at the top of the screen.
The photos are then sent via the router to the TV.
Need to know how to do this with video being streamed from the web, then wirelessly to the tablet, then wirelessly back to the router, then via Powerline Adapters to the TV.
Or just videos in memory on the tablet being played, and streamed [via the router] to the TV.

Hello @Sylvander.

The neat thing about what has happened since Google's Chromecast entry into home's TV space, is this, "new to all of us", notion of "casting". The term really means "throwing" the connection from one device and used at another. For example, From my Android I can, with my Chromecast unit plugged into my TV, throw my Netflix video active connection and playing to my Chromecast who takes over the stream freeing my Android for other things. Once it is thrown, the thrower is no longer involved in anything to do with the content thrown. Same is done from my browser, where I can cast from there in exactly the same way. Casting is the means by which this stuff is to be sent to the big screens in the home.

In other words, the device to which content is cast to, takes over the responsibility of displaying content it is now getting from the source location rather than from the device which sent the cast. The theory is "If that source is one of the known Inet sites that is where it continues from. if that source is from a location on your LAN, that is where it continues from."

This is the technology that our home equipment makes available for our use.

Hope this is helpful in understanding and hope this is a reasonably accurately worded account.

PostPosted: Sun 28 Dec 2014, 03:52    Post subject: Precise 5.7.1 and PuppEx Tahr 6.0
Subject description: Working
 

I've got it to work on two vastly different machine. It works under Precise 5.7.1 and Tahr 5.8.3 on my Asus M5A97 with AMD FX4100 CPU. I can't get Tahr 6+ to recognize my keyboard on this machine.

I've got an Toshiba Tecra M5 1.6 CoreDuo laptop with PuppEx Tahr 6 installed and if you follow Sylvander's installation it will work even on that ancient machine. Might work on older Intel CPU machines with Precise 5.7.1 but Tahr 6 really is better for newer equipment.

So does Chromecast work on Puppy Linux?
Do I need to be running the Google Chrome web browser in Puppy?
Which is the Chrome add-on that allows displaying the PC display on the TV screen? [Aircast or Allcast?]
