I have rebuilt Qt 5.10.0 from source with proprietary codecs enabled so I can use "widevinecdm.dll" to watch Netflix video or any Widevine encrypted video:
example of video here:
So after the rebuilt. I thought I would have support for this plugin by just dropping the dll inside the /release folder.
Unfortunately It is not working, and I have no way of knowing what the issue is.
I read that I may need to --register-pepper-plugins on t Chromium command line,
But since I am launching Chromium from my application, I don't know how I can achieve that?
Any way to debug this further? I spent a day learning to build Qt from source -_-
Should be loaded auto when reading source..
Maybe related to that:
The Latest Qt 5.10.0 cloned from source has new flag for QtWebEngine:
configure -opensource -confirm-license -release -openssl-runtime -webengine-pepper-plugins -webengine-proprietary-codecs
Gonna try to rebuilt with that
New version of widevine.dll are not working
