Airplay and Netflix help - idlehands - 05-14-2013

I am trying to figure out how to stream NetFlix to my openelec 3.0 htpc.

It looks like XMBC flix won't work because of a lack of silverlight support in linux. I have tried using airplay on my ipad, however that only sent the audio to the htpc, the video stayed on the ipad.

I found a beamer app, but that only works under OSX, and was hoping to just use the ipad. I also wonder the efficacy of beamer if airplay isn't perfect. I've noticed that when I try to airplay music from my iphones to the htpc the music stops and starts and is interrupted by static. This is on an iphone 5 and 4s. youtube typically runs better which is strange .

anyways, thanks

Netflix is not supported under Linux. Until that changes .. no chance. The OSX > Airplay solution is not perfect, but it's as good as it gets.

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to Android(netflix) -> XBMC ?

Sheesh it seems like moving content around should be much easier than it is.
