Install pipelight from AUR. You probably want to use an AUR helper that resolves dependencies as it requires wine-silverlight (a patched version of wine with silverlight support) which is also in AUR.

Note: Please ensure you close firefox before you install this package, or you might run into this issue : https://answers.launchpad.net/pipelight/+faq/2357

Once you're done with this, there are two more steps that you need to do :

  1. Initialize the plugin for the first time by running
    # /usr/share/pipelight/wine-silverlight5.1.installer
    You don't need to change permissions or use sudo for this. Ignore the wine warnings that pop up, just click through.
  2. Change the user string of your browser as described here : https://answers.launchpad.net/pipelight/+faq/2351. This is required because even though you are now capable of running netflix, netflix won't stream if it detects you are on linux.


That is all you need to do. You can verify that the plugin was installed correctly even before change user agent by visiting this page : http://bubblemark.com/sl3/TestPage.html
