Who still uses Microsoft Silverlight? UPC… They use the Silverlight plugin to stream TV and handle DRM. Okay, that’s nice, but how do you get Silverlight to work under Linux? It turns out it is a few easy steps using Pipelight which brings support for Silverlight to Firefox and Chrome under Linux.
Install Pipelight by executing the following command from the command line.
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable widevine
Enable the Pipelight Widevine and Silverlight plugin.
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable widevine sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight
Thats it. Lets watch some TV 🙂
