How To Install Pipelight 0.2.3 On Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora And OpenSUSE

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Pipelight is a browser plugin which enables the use of Microsoft’s close-source Silverlight, in order to have access at video streaming services, like Netflix, for example.

Pipelight needs both a Linux library and a Windows file called pluginloader.exe, that loads the Silverlight DLLs via Wine. Many popular television services, including Netflix can be watched only via Silverlight / Pipelight, so this workaround is quite useful.

The latest version available is Pipelight 0.2.3, which has been recently released.
