A quick blurb on running Netflix and StreamPix on Linux. In my case I am using Fedora 18 64 Bit.
I started with the Netflix for Linux script
Once the Netflixplayer.sh was run I could access Netflix-Player from Fedora's applications. Initially Netflix would not load yiedling a generic error. This error was due to a lack of MS fonts. I resolved this by installing EasyLife and from EasyLife I installed the Fonts package. I think you can achieve the same from winetricks and choosing corefonts.
Once I verified Netflix to be workign I tried Xfinity's StreamPix. I pressed ALT-V , selected toolbars and enabled the Navigation bar so I could type in the URL. I received a Java error at first.
I tried to install Flash from various links within the wine netflix browser window without luck until I found the debug version.
I downloaded this and ran it from within the wine session with success. Afterwhich I was able to access content on Xfinity.com with full audio and sound
