wine-silverlight is a replacement for wine, so they both use .wine. If you check the PKGBUILDS, I've added simple flags to enable custom prefixes, you need to make sure you set the same wineprefix in both packages, or use the $WINEPREFIX variable. wine-silverlight is only used to actually run silverlight in the case of this package, so it won't be an issue even if they use the same .wine folder

Will Wine-silverlight and wine get conflicted if they both end up using $HOME/.wine as instructed in /usr/share/pipelight/pipelight?

Just sped up the compile by a huge degree. By default it now uses a precompiled pluginloader.exe, no longer requiring mingw to be compiled. You can still compile your own if you like by setting _compilepluginloader=1 in the PKGBUILD

Thank you anish.

Please note pipelight requires you to change the user agent identifier for your browser as Linux is not officially supported by netflix, please read for details

OK, everything has been automated in the package now. Please run /usr/share/pipelight/wine-silverlight5.1.installer on first run to initialize plugin

wine path & prefix are configurable in the directory or you can set them yourself later on

If you have netflix-desktop already installed,
dllPath = c:\Program Files\Microsoft Silverlight\4.1.10329.0\
and embed = false in the config file will get you up and running immediately

If you're having issues where you hear audio but see no video, set embed = false
in the config file
