And yet still more contempt for SilverLight (And Netflix for being stupid enough to use it!) September 17, 2011Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
I’ve done everything. Updated all my plug-ins, dumped network cache, dumped regular cache, and yet, if I try watching Netflix I see PlugInContainer sucking up most of the CPU time on the machine and it’s a stuttering wonder.
I have to wonder why the hell Netflix chose to go with the SilverLight player. The Flash based player worked just fine, no problems whatsoever.
But what really irks me is that since Microsoft pushed this piece of shit player upon us, they pulled the plug on any future SilverLight development.
And I hear that the next version of IE won’t allow Add-In’s like Flash player. What the fuck? I know Flash player has issues too, but none like that piece of fucking shit SilverLight.
So Netflix, please switch back. I’m not the only one of your subscribers having this issue. And I’ve replicated the issue in Firefox 6, Google Chrome 13.0.782.220 m, and IE 8. The only common factor among the three browsers, SilverLight. So please, I implore you at Neflix, go back to the Flash player.
