HTML5 Brings Netflix to Samsung’s ARM Chromebook

8 99

Netflix has pushed an update today to its Chrome Store app which brings support for the ARM-based Samsung Chromebook.

Google has been working with Netflix (take some tips Canonical) to bring the DRMed services to the Chromebook. This is major as instead of using Microsoft’s Silverlight Netflix is using HTML5 video streaming (which now supports DRM for HTML5 on Chromebooks). Recently Google enabled the much controversial DRM (digital repression management) support for HTML5 in Chrome OS to bring services like Netflix to Chromebooks using HTML5 instead of controversial Silverlight of Microsoft.

This is yet another victory of open standard and open source after Google managed to get a deal with MPEG LA for VP8 which is now heading for becoming a standard.
