Ubuntu and Video Streaming Services

Up until now, I have been frustrated by the lack of support for video streaming services on Ubuntu. For streaming audio, there’s a Spotify snap app conveniently in the Ubuntu Store but nothing for Netflix, Hulu or others.

Today I was poking around and discovered an application called “ElectronPlayer” in the Ubuntu Software store. It supports Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, Twitch and Floatplane. I installed it on my old 2007 iMac running Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.

To my surprise, it works very well! I highly recommend this application.
