Netflix in Chromium → EndeavorOS

Just for those who look for how to watch Netflix in the Chromium browser, install via AUR, in my case with yay, the chromium-widevine codecs and it’s done.

$ yay chromium-widevine
1 aur/chromium-widevine 1:4.10.1440.18-2 (+351 6.08%) (Installed)
    A browser plugin designed for the viewing of premium video content
==> Packages to install (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3 or ^4)
==> 


Enjoy!

For Vivaldi the solution is:

  • vivaldi
  • vivaldi-codecs-ffmpeg-extra-bin
  • vivaldi-widevine

I only use libwidevinecdm.so from google-chrome backuped in my home for chromium, copy to chromium directory dont’t need yay for this.

Take a look at the PKGBUILD.

yay chromium-widevine acomplishes exactly just that. Spare yourself the trouble, try it.

try this i use it to watch Netflix, Prime,Dazn, etc.

regards

I’m using another distros with shared /home, really don’t need yay to do this, i’m use the same file to all distros, my way is simple and fast.

sudo cp libwidevinecdm.so /usr/lib(64)/chromium

Excuse my ignorance, but is there an equivalent to this for Firefox? Just curious.

I thought you can watch Netflix on FF as it is. There is this DRM-thingy implemented since Quantum!?
With anoter service I use now and then it works out of the box, just have to enable “DRM-Content” when the icon appears in the navigation bar next to the security-lock.
