Is it possible to add Netflix support into MythTV?

MythTV is primarily Linux, and Netflix is not currently supported in Linux. There are clumsy methods to run a Windows browser under WINE, but that's obviously not going to be integrated with MythTV. As of last month, there is apparently very preliminary beta capability for Netflix under Linux Chrome with HTML5 EME, however that is similarly not integrated with MythTV.

You can use netflix with firefox (+pipelight, +user agent overrider). This was tested last week on mythbuntu 14.04.
Let me know if someone needs more details for configuration (for example the right user agent string).

Netflix is available unofficially on Linux and is running on my MythTV system inside of the Google-Chrome-Beta browser. This works better than any Wine or pipelight based options.

See:

for info on how to do this and then just add the chrome-beta browser to your MythTV menus
