What could be a good Silverlight equivalent in Linuxmint Cinnamon 16 and how to install it?
It was Moonlight, but that has now been abandoned. I fear that there is no alternative. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/06/linux-silverlight-plugin-moonlight-abandoned
How about this?: http://www.muktware.com/2014/02/watch-tv-linux-pc/21248
Like what @arochester linked. Pipelight is the closest.
BUT once HTML 5 is mainstream...
See if this helps. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/pipelight-using-silverlight-in-linux-browsers.html
If you just need it for Netflix.....http://www.howtogeek.com/130372/how-to-watch-netflix-on-ubuntu-with-the-netflix-desktop-app/
When is that going to happen?
Next couple of years from what I have heard. There is talk about Netflix and Amazon instant video already experimenting with HTML 5.
Old thread but here's some useful info, moonlight is not dead:
Google chrome has good support for it (in Arch's AUR repos, it's google-chrome-extension-moonlight), so if anyone interested is not afraid of having their soul stolen, just go for it. I had to install it yesterday - working great.
Chromium may also work with that after some tweaking.
I have to try that with Chromium.
why not use silverlight
i put a pdf i cant type url
it is in deb form super easy . I used alien great works on tar.gz and rpm probally more
sudo alien filename.rpm (for rpm-deb)
sudo alien -k filename.tar.gz
sudo apt-get install alien
I wonder if that works for Amazon Instant Video also?
If you get wine there is a program called wine-silverlight. I think it came with Pinguy OS, but Pinguy and LM are both Debian based which means if you find a download for Pinguy it should be compatable with LM.
