I’m an avid Netflixer and I don’t at present have a TV, so I rely on my Mac for all my video watching needs. Naturally I was delighted to read this morning that Multnomah County Library offers movies for free via the Internet. My enthusiasm waned a little after I perused the meager list of available titles (pdf), but I was looking forward, at least, to some Globe Trekker and America’s Test Kitchen episodes.
But even my modest enthusiasm was for nought; the service does not work on Macs.
(I’m aware I could purchase and install Parallels and a Windows OS, but it’s not worth the money and effort and I’m wary, through years of experience, of all things Microsoft anyway.)
