Re: GUIDE: Netflix on a Pi2 or Pi3

OK, Thank you very much for answers. So I thought I could not to play 1080p netflix (even 720p is not acceptable to me). I'll try omxplayerGUI to see if it helps with youtube.
Once again thanks and best regards!

Can you please confirm if your deb package with the widevine drivers works as of today?

Today, I tried your deb package on my raspberry pi 2, but I get the following error from Netflix

Error Msg : 'Unable to send the Widevine license request'
Error code : M7121-1331-P7

I ran my chromium-browser with a clean user-data-dir with no extensions. I am running Retropie/Jessie/Pixel setup on my Pi2.

I tested my chromium-browser with shaka player (https://shaka-player-demo.appspot.com) and can confirm that widevine CDM content plays. It is only with Netflix, I am unable to get it fixed.

Can you please confirm, if there is a need to change the User-agent string for this package. I tried changing the user-agent string but in vein.

I am trying to access Netflix from India, but can confirm that Netflix works on my FF 53 (windows) from here.

Also, I read in some forums that now Netflix uses widevine for both decoding and decryption. Also, there is a kodi 18 Netflix plugin that seems to support doing both. I am still to take the kodi 18 route as it is bleeding alpha.

Please kindly provide your suggestions.

Thanks and Regards,

That's the same exact thing as I've specified above. Nothing different. All you need is to reboot a couple of times.

Hi,

Now in Raspbian with Debian Stretch 9, if I upgrade to Chromium 60 Netflix stop to work because the Widevine is not present.

Any chances of a new compilation?

For now I'm hold further upgrades:

sudo apt-mark hold chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra chromium-browser chromium-browser-l10n

Thanks,

Is there any way to get it to work with chromium 60, under raspbian Stretch? If I clone chromium 60 and apply v60.0.3112.89_mmal_2.10.patch from following repo:
https://github.com/raspberrypi-ui/chromium_patches

What else should I do to include widevine and package it to work for Netflix?

Thanks in advance :-)
