Netflix and Amazon (not sure about Hulu, I haven't tried it)
Use HTML5 now with DRM, the only thing that will work on a 32bit 
computer is the OLD (non secure) Google Chrome (please disable the built 
in PDF reader, as there is a HUGE security vulnerability that is 
extremely dangerous) really you should use 64bit Google Chrome, but this 
is Lubuntu and most of us use a 32bit computer.

I have tried using the widevine plugins in chromium to no avail in my 
testing.  I might try out Opera at some point just to try it, but it is 
another proprietary browser like Chrome.

On 64bit, you can simply take the widevine shared object library files 
and use them in other Webkit browsers (Vivaldi works from what I hear 
and I have used them in Chromium on Arch Linux successfully, possibly 
Opera will work as well)
