Something is not working for me ,
this is what i did :
1. download and install Vivaldi Linux DEB ARM,
2. added the User-agent as it said
3. try to make it run in Chromuim and in the Vivaldi browsers
get the same error

why?

I have notice that it said :
AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/69.0.3497.102 Safari/537.36
and the version of the chromuim is 72
maybe this is the problem?

also it doesn't say how to install Widevine

can you help me find a solution for this ?

it's getting very frustrated.....

Thanks ,

Until Netflix do not require Secure Boot / DRM it will be frustrating, take it out on Netflix not here in this Voluntarily run Forum.

This may give you some pointers:

I have no problems with the GREAT people and help I get here,

I understadn the proboem is Netflix ,

*** I have try the link you post - this is for chromuim 74 , and pi 3 for some unknown reason won't let me update more then 72( this is the first think I have try )

I just can't believe that I am the onky one in the world that try to run Netflix on PI3 - stretch , that is all.

Thank you anyway ,

The first response had a link to install Vivaldi Browser !!


Raspbian Stretch has been superseded, Raspbian Buster since June has been the supported Operating System.

1. I know -I install it , opened it , enter Netflix website - and got the same error. so it didn't help - I mention this .
2. so you think that if I will upgrage the PI from Stretch to Buster it might work ?
I have all kind of other programs that are running on the pi right now , will they still work?
do I need to make a fresh new installation for this ? ot there is a way to just upgrage?

Thanks ,
