So, it looks like you cannot remove this plugin through the Chromium / Brave UI. Should installing this package, and then uninstalling it remove the unremovable WideVine install if done through a Chromium based browser?

Doesn't really answer the question, though.

This package is autoupgradeable when is reinstalled. The only thing is the eula checksum, can will fail. I can bump if you think is a problem

This doesn't seem to ship a different version anymore, and without the adapter, it's not tied to a specific version of chromium. Is there any reason for this to be separate from chromium-widevine? If a symlink would do the job, i could ship that.

We've tried the direct download before, it ended up very, very rarely being updated.

May I suggest to use the following link to download widevine only instead of the full Chrome package:

The 4.10.1196.0 should be updated to use the latest version available though.

This trick was taken from a script used by Vivaldi. See:

Deps can't be runtime-only now that we're dlopening the lib. Should be fixed now.

Won't build in chroot.

requires makedepends=('nss')

Possibly an overkill but works nicely:
