So we all know DRM is shit, but Netflix has all the Star Trek I want. 😬 Is it worse to use Google Chrome JUST for Netflix? Or install all the plugins and enable DRM for Firefox? Feels like the second since anything Google is pretty intrusive..

@luckystrike I hear people use their torrent service. Netflix is a release group, right? I don't watch a lot of stuff, so I forget.

Anyhow, I recall seeing STD was doing well on torrent networks, piqued my interest. ^_^

@luckystrike Netflix is not only DRM but also profiling linked to your credit card number.

In my case I use Kodi with Exodus Redux plugin on a LibreELEC box.

(It is not torrent-based. It’s basically a scrapper so watching that stuff is legal 🤷)

In summary I can watch stuff on a libre GNU/Linux box w/o DRM and not being profiled/data mined by a Big Corp.
I accept that trade-off.

@kmicu Oh rad! I've got a PII lying around somewhere; maybe it's high time it did something. 😆
