I had a friend ask me today about using Netflix, or rather not being able to use it. A couple of months ago, he lost the ability to strream videos. He says nothing happens after he chooses his title by clicking on it. He has contacted support but after they couldn't figure it out, they told him it was his computer.
I don't use Netflix and the only thing that I can find out is it uses MS Silverlight. "In its simplest form, video is streamed to the user using standard PC hardware, and requires Microsoft's Silverlight software to be installed." You can read the whole article from Wikipedia here
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
