Chromium Widevine missing [Raspbian]

Fri Sep 07, 2018 4:23 am

So i got 2 RPI's today and i installed Rasbian via NOOBS and one of them is going to be a Web server the other is going to be a media device (Netflix, Youtube, ect)

Im new to linux so this is a huge learning curve for me now when i booted up netflix it say i was missing components under chrome://components (Chromium browsers)

Now when i checked Widevine was on 0.0.0.0 and when i clicked update it just wouldnt do anything :( so i researched how to update the software for the PI and well it updated EVERYTHING LUL, and now Widevine isnt even under chromiums components list anymore and i tried to install it via this tutorial and get stopped in my tracks :(

When i try to run the "makepkg -sri" then i realised its prob not right line of code for debian so could somone convert that method for me to my version of linux :( sorry im a NOOB :( got a long ways to go.

We aren't able to distribute widevine legally. However, you should look up widevine raspberry Pi vivaldi. You should find a guide with the steps on how to get it for another browser. The same steps work for chromium.
