    Works fine for me, thanks for the instructions! I'm running the 64-bit edition of Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon on my HTPC. As I live in Europe, I additionally installed ZenMate to get the U.S. only content. It seems there's no longer any need for me to use Windows on this computer now, as I've only needed it to watch Netflix. Thanks once more for the help, the instructions were thorough and easy enough to follow.

  2. Thank you so much! I had to use Google Chrome Beta in order for it to work, but that is not a big deal at all.

    I got it working on Chrome on Linux Mint17 however when i am not moving the mouse it states it is paused and dims out but it never pauses.
    Any ideas?

    • I'm having some issues with Chrome in Linux Mint 17 when GPU rendering is enabled under Advanced Settings in Chrome. In my case, Chrome doesn't behave properly when switching to full screen. This is independent of trying to stream Netflix. You could try disabling GPU Rendering in Chrome to see if that helps. I'm guessing you won't be happy with the way video looks in that case though.

    Thanks very much for this, worked first time!

    Using a fresh install of Linux Mint 17 all I had to do was install mainstream Chrome and follow the user agent switcher instructions then it just worked. This was something that had stopped me moving to Linux as my main OS for some time...

    Thanks for the instructions, Netflix worked perfect! The only thing you may need to update is that you no longer require the Beta version of Chrome. Here's my current version of Chrome: { Version 37.0.2062.120 (64-bit) }.I'm currently using Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64 Bit, Cinnamon Version 2.2.16 Linux Kernel 3.13.0-24-generic.

    Thanks again for the simple and effective way of getting Netflix working.

    • Thanks for the update. I guess version 37 made it from Beta into production.
