Silverlight Equivalent in Linux Lite?

I am trying to get Netflix and some stock charts working in Firefox. When I went to install Silverlight, the installation redirected me to a page for Moonlight. Bold letters at the bottom say "Note: Moonlight isn’t actively developed anymore. If you’re feeling adventurous you can probably get it working by compiling from source, but we recommend you move away from Moonlight as soon as possible."

OK, I did some more research and found out about something called Pipelight. That isn't listed in the 'install/remove software' to be installed. I've successfully installed in that. I have tried to install from Wine to no success at all. The few times I tried it, what did get installed won't run.

What is the solution to this dilemma?

Thanks, Robert
