I’ve finally got native Netflix working in Fedora 20, this is what I had do to get it working.
- Make sure you’re running Chrome Version 37 at least
- Make sure you’re running NSS version 3.17
paulmellors@localhost ~]$ rpm -q nss nss-3.17.0-1.fc20.x86_64
- Make sure you have the chrome user agent switcher installed
- Think you can get it from here – https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg
Installing this will place new icon in the right of the Chrome toolbar. Right-click on this item and select ‘Options’. We’ll now add the required HTTP agent with the following string (thanks to Mat Enders for these steps):
Name: Netflix Linux
String: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2114.2 Safari/537.36
Group: (is filled in automatically)
Append?: Select ‘Replace’
If you fill this in correctly you should have something like this:
Click the ‘Add’ button at the far end to save your UA.
Now, load ‘netflix.com‘ in a new tab, and click the User-Agent Switcher toolbar icon, click ‘Chrome’ and select the ‘Netflix Linux’ entry. This will reload the page.
Optionally, you can set a permanent spoof rule to force this user-agent to take effect when loading Netflix:
You should now be able to watch netflix on Fedora 🙂
