How To Install Pipelight 0.2.7 On Fedora 20, Fedora 19 And CentOS 6

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 0.2.7, which has been recently released, with support for Shockware 12.1.1.151, Flash 13.0.0.214, updates for the the Unity 3D plugin Adobereader, FoxitReader and the Roblox plugin, got a system-check utility that verifies if the installation is correct, got fixes so that Firefox does not detect the wrong plugin versions, added experimental support for the TrianglePlayer plugin, etc. For more information, see the changelog.
