Streaming Netflix to WM [via Media Center]

NetFlix now streams through Windows Media Center (if you have Vista home premium or professional). I'm trying to get that stream from my PC to go to my Fuze. Orb doesn't seem to do it. I also used software that establishes WMC as a webcam but Orb can't push that either (they require a USB cam for some reason). I can obviously do remote desktop but that's generally not as optimized for video/sound as would be required to stream movies. Any thoughts?
I'd love to have 100,000+ movies available to stream on demand
Thanks

Re: Streaming Netflix to WM [via Media Center]

it would be amazing if netflix developed a WM client to stream directly to the phone!

Re: Streaming Netflix to WM [via Media Center]

Netflix is not streaming through Media Center but to Media Center using silverlight. It's no different than running the netflix silverlight application in the browser. If Media Center were able to stream out the Netflix application then maybe the Media Center extenders would work, but they don't.

With the old version of netflix, pre silverlight, you had a chance to transcode the stream.

Re: Streaming Netflix to WM [via Media Center]

i don't need to redirect the stream (I don't expect WM to take the feed even if it were an mpeg and render it on the phone side). I'm looking to capture an image of it and stream that. In other words, I have an app that will take any window and simulate that window as a virtual webcam so I could take WMC and stream that as a webcam over MSN for example...the goal is to redirect the image, not the stream itself. So if software could take WMC and treat it as a tv input then Orb cold stream that for example.
Another way of putting it, if I use a VPN/remote desktop connection I can view my PC and if it has WMC playing then I can see that on my Fuze. I prefer another method that's more optimized for audio/video though.
