This package is no longer needed for Chromium, it can download the component itself. With Chromium 81, you can either use this or let it download the component, but when Chromium 83 is updated in the Arch repos, it will ignore this package all together.

I'll maintain this package for a while for the other systems that use it.

I will step up and adopt it since other ports such as qtwebflix needs it.

Upstream packaged an older version with the newer browser. They've done this before, then switched back to the newer version with next minor release, I was hoping that's what would happen here.

Any idea what's going on with the version for this package? Thanks

I think the epoch needs to be bumped because the last version went backwards 1:4.10.2652.0-1 -> 1:4.10.2557.0-1?

Rasberry Pi just started distributing libwidevinecdm for aarch64 here: Seems it's not quite as up to date as the x64 source in the package and doesn't seem to contain the main WidevineCdm binary that the x64 source do.

From what source?

@Scimmia can you add the aarch64 architecture to the PKGBUILD? It'll make the building process on that platform easier.

Thank you,

Thank god this package is still updated! Not sure if it's this one that did the trick or "qt5-webplugin-widevine". I installed both but I think this is the one that works.

I use Edge, and under Edge://flags, widevine is still unrecognized as a thing just like hardware encode/decode and video hardware acceleration ("unavailable on your platform"). Install this package and then just get to Netflix. No need to enable any flag or anything. Just restart the browser, maybe even the computer just in case (though not needed).

If you increase the _chrome_ver and the pkgver is the same then you should also increase pkgrel.

Done! Thanks a lot!
