I want to be able to watch my instant queue movies on my Mac without having to use bootcamp. Is that a totally unreasonable request, and can it be done?

Best way I could guess would be to use a VM, like fusion. I don't know if the video will work right in a VM, though.

AFAIK they're working on an OS agnostic player, like hulu. But they're not there yet

At least it does on my macbook. I use VM Fusion and can watch movies on Netflix, though i can't really do something else otherwise i get a lot of lag (in the movie)
