Hi ,

if you mean Netflix (and not Netflex) it has not a native cooperation with Linux.

Some repositories have packages for this service , you can try and see :

As for the DVDs try to install some restricted codecs..

$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

also medibuntu codecs can help..

Thanks
