VirtualBox for Netflix on Linux

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 192.31.106.34] on September 23, 2008 12:17 AM
I've been using VirtualBox for months to run XP on my linux laptop so I can use the Netflix 'Watch Instantly' feature. VirtualBox performance (with Intel VT-x support) is so good I can play full-screen streaming video in it perfectly. In fact, because of Vista's DRM checks and security crap, Netflix playback is actually faster on XP inside VirtualBox than if I boot my laptop to Vista.
