Ok. is there another way to watch netflix in haiku with another browser or app?
I guess things liek netflix/youtube etc. would be used by average users since the os is targeted to personal computer users. Is webpositive the best option for youtube now or is for exampel otter working better with youtube? Are there already people using it as their daily os?

There is no textmode, but it should still be possible to run brltty and get 
that working. Just
as you could ssh to an Haiku system or maybe run a terminal over a serial line.

suggestion: maybe it is a good idea to add a package to depot something 
like(nightly vs beta1) so
the whole list of missing packages form a nightly build can be installed at 

You can just install things as you need them. The beta is provided with a few 
bonus apps to get
you started and fill up the free space on the DVD, but nothing really essential.

has someone already watched netflix with haiku, is that already possible with 
the webpositive
browser? or watching tv-show from other sources like fmovies.to does that work?

Netflix won't work because of DRM protection. Even youtube is not working 
great, quite crashy
(but I'm working on that) and there is no fullscreen support at the moment.
