Earlier this year Netflix announced a new service that would allow you to watch a limited number of videos online instead of waiting for the DVDs to come in the mail.
The video player is browser based, and the movies are encoded using Windows Media DRM.
Well, the smart folks over at the Rorta forums seem to have cracked the code, using Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player 11, FairUse4WM, and Notepad.
Keep in mind, this hack will not let you download more than 17 hours of
video per month, so it's not exactly going to be a great trick for
starting your online video piracy empire.
