My original thread here :https://voat.co/v/ubuntu/1385001 (new thread made so that the solution would be visible). the advice there sadly, didn't work. The answer was actually very simple, but it took a few steps.
Google Chrome will play netflix by default now (html5 DRM shit)
Chrome isn't currently in the Software search
Open terminal and copy paste these:
this DL's chrome
then install dependencies
sudo apt-get install libxss1 libgconf2-4 libappindicator1 libindicator7
then install it with
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
Open your search and search for chrome and click it to open. Mine installed with a "?" as the logo, but it works. The first time it wouldn't play a video (got some error), I refreshed netflix and it has worked fine since.
