Solved Do I need widevinecdmadapter.so to watch Netflix, Prime etc.?
I am on Archlinux.
We have packages in AUR which should provide widevine, one of them especially for qt5-webengine. Generally they get the widevine component and copy the content (libwidevinecdm.so) to /usr/lib/chromium. So far so good...
If i have chromium installed alongside e.g. Qupzilla i can watch netflix with qupzilla very well. but if i remove chromium i ran in issues: widevine-component not found.
So, with removing chromium i also removed libwidevinecdmadapter.so from /usr/lib/chromium.
I searched the web and contacted the maintainer, but no clear statement. I guess qt5-webengine needs both libwidevinecdmadapter.so and libwidevinecdm.so to work properly.
Can someone of the devs please confirm...
Yes i will do, thank you!
