New Video Tutorial on the Pipelight Plugin and Netflix in PC-BSD

We recently looked at the pipelight port that recently received a patch in the ports tree and made a video for you guys.

I’ll just leave this here…

    google.comThanks Josh 🙂
    Switched a friend of mine to Linux Mint Cinnamon a while back and Amazon Prime videos would not work in FireFox, tried Chromium & Opera also with no luck, due to DRM crap from what I read. Found out that Google has Chrome for Linux now, installed the .DEB package on his machine and Prime videos now work, however, we tried the movie Interstellar and it would not allow us to watch in HD, only in SD mode. But he’s happy it’s working in SD. Can’t wait until I can replace my, his & other friends’ OS with PCBSD, maybe once PCBSD version 11.0 comes out.
    Not sure if there is any way to run the Google Chrome .DEB package in PCBSD to get NetFlix working?

    Okay I tried these steps on an AMD system I got everything compiled and I believe I got it to install however I didn’t get any video playback in Netflix but I didn’t get any visible errors either.
