For the past 4 days, I've been trying to get Netflix, Hulu and Project Free TV to work with XBMC, but I haven't been able to do so. I've Googled this for the last 4 days, I've read and read and re-read direction on how to do this, but for the life of me I cann't get the addon to work. I was lastly advised to use a "LINK," but I am not sure how to accomplish this.

I am using my Win 7 64 bit PC, with ATI Radeon 5700 series, and using a 23" LED HDMI monitor. I've been able to get all of my movies scrapped correctly the first time without any issues. A lot better than Zappit and Yadis from my Dune media players. The reason why I am trying to do this is to consolidate all of my devices into one.

I currently use a Dune D1 and Dune TV303D to stream my ripped movies. We either use a PS3 or XBox for Netflix, and my wife uses her laptop for Hulu and project free TV. It would be awesome if I can get my Win 7 PC to work with everything. That way I'll be able to get rid of all of the remotes lol, and I'll find an excuse to build two dedicated HTPC, and I'll be able to sell my Dune media players.

Thanks for any help on this matter.

And on the 5th day, I was able to install Hulu, and even Amazon on XBMC. Hulu works, but Amazon doesn't. This is probably since I don't have a paid subscription to Amazon Video. I have only been able to play Netflix via WMC. So, in order to watch Netflix, I will have to switch between WMC and XBMC, which isn't a bad deal. I think it is better than turning off my Dune media player, and turning on the Xbox or PS3.

So, after doing all this testing on my Win 7 PC, I think I might be ready to start building a HTPC....of course I will have to sell one of my Dune media player. Most likely the Dune TV303D to help me fund this project.
