Nexflix on Chromium family of browsers? [SOLVED]
« on: April 16, 2019, 07:53:28 pm »

I've been browsing the fora trying to determine if we've ever found a solution for watching Netflix on the Chromium family of browsers, aside from Chrome? It seems the answer is still no... The useragent switchers I have tried thus far aren't providing a solution.

It takes more than just a user agent switcher to enable DRM in Chromium .. you also need to add widevine support.

If for some reason you don't wanna use Chrome, I gather Vivaldi now has DRM support via widevine.

Nothing doing on Chromium, but Vivaldi fired Netflix right up.
