Today I tried to download the widevine shared object and tried to follow a raspberry pi 2 guide for getting the Netflix to work from the chromium web browser, and it worked. Both sound and video is working, these are the steps i followed to make it work.
Code: Select all
cd /tmp wget https://download.christian-brauweiler.de/RaspberryPi/LibreELEC/libwidevinecdm.so sudo mv libwidevinecdm.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser
Download and install user agent switcher.
The text below is taken from a guide from instructables .
"Open Chromium and add a user agent switcher.
Go into settings then extentions and click Options on the user agent switcher and add the below user agent string
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS armv7l 6946.63.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/45.0.2357.130 Safari/537.36
After adding the string be sure to switch to it by clicking the guy in the mast next to the address bar in the top right corner of chromium.
Make sure you restart chrome and then test it out on netflix."
Log in to netflix and play some video content.
When I was testing the solution i noticed that one series was stuttering, I the cpu load was quite high related to other series that i watched, but other series and movies worked fine
