    Is it possible to watch Netflix in Media Portal and if so how well does it all work?

    Ideally, I'd like it to start the Windows Store Netflix application, with a Netflix icon the same size as Movies/Series/TV :)

    I think this could be possible by the "App Launcher" plugin: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/applauncher.131116/#post-1140507. The icon is not on homepage though, but it's only one more step :)

    Only question is if the Windows store apps can be started by an ".exe" path? I didn't look into this yet. Maybe this article is useful: http://windowsitpro.com/windows-8/opening-windows-8-apps-command-prompt-or-script

    Was just trying to get a better WAF you see :)

    I'll test it out this weekend. I did do a test install to run cmd.exe, but I haven't investigated how Windows Store apps are run. Will report back soon.

    BTW, while I've got your attention, why is the "Playlist" option in every menu under Settings?!
