Does Netflix work?
Thanks in advance.
Yes it's good to go.
You have to install the silverlight 5 beta developer runtime for mac:
It crashes a lot.
Yes it works
You don't need to download the silverlight 5 beta.
I've yet to see a crash, or hold up on system performance using Netflix or silverlight in my MacBook Pro. Flash on the other hand is completely worthless on any OS. Had a kernel panic earlier today watching the MacBook Air boot comparison video via 9to5mac.com.
It's not working for me on Lion. Any suggestions? It says "plugin failure" when trying to stream on Netflix ever since I installed Lion.
Netflix is working fine here with Silverlight 4.
It works in both Chrome and Safari.
For me it plays fine in Lion / Safari, but the widgets don't work (pause, play next episode, etc.) - however the keyboard shortcuts (space to pause, etc.) all work fine.
Same behavior with Silverlight 4 as well as 5 beta
Those work here as well.
Did you do a clean install of Lion? If so, you will have to download Sliverlight and install it. It's not automatically on there since it's a MS product.
just checked in, fine here...
I'm not sure if this is related, but when attempting to watch an online Silverlight video, the plugin crashed under Chrome, but worked in Safari.
When I went to the Microsoft Silverlight download page in Chrome, the site claimed that I was using an "unsupported" browser.
I just downloaded OS X Lion on Friday and my Netflix wouldn't stream since then. I was so frustrated getting that "plug-in failure". The plug-in download works just fine for my Safari 5.
Lion Killed Safari Siverlight...
I upgraded to Lion today. Netflix no longer works when using Safari 5. I am getting the plugin failure message. However Netflix streaming works in Firefox 5.0.1.
Running on a 2010 Macbook Pro
Netflix is actually working better than ever and playing HD video very cleanly...which I had not experienced on the browser version yet.
Update! It works!!
I started tooling around on Microsoft's Silverlight website and landed here: http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/case-studies/default.aspx?view=1&feature=Media
While the page was loading I was informed that I needed a newer version of Silverlight in order for the page to work (opening Silverlight via Applications yielded no information about a new version being available). Netflix now streams just fine in both Safari and Firefox.
All I had to do was update my Silverlight through Microsoft, restart my browser (Safari) and things went swimmingly.
I opened a movie in netflix, it asked me to install silverlight I said ok, movie played.
