Google doesn't seem to be keeping the direct download up to date. If it isn't updated, I'll have to switch this back to extracting it from Chrome. :(

Thanks. You help-me a lot.

Any command line switch. For flash, it's --ppapi-flash-path. If they end up doing something similar for Widevine, we could put this in a more generic path and just let everything use it. I'm asking if they're moving that direction, since I don't follow Chromium development that much and the separate download seems to indicate they might be.

what command line switch?

i only put the library into /usr/lib/chromium-dev

i'm not sure if upstream maked something about the widevine as pepperflash does

sl1pkn07, does chromium-dev use a command line switch for widevine now? With a separate download available, including a manifest.json, I'm wondering if they're going to handle it like they do the ppapi flash plugin. If they are, we can get support added to the wrapper and combine most/all of the widevine packages.

seems widevine provided by chromium dev channel is the same

└───╼ sha256sum /usr/lib/chromium{,-dev}/

can you add support to chromium-dev too?

I've just switched this to a direct download of the plugin only, so the current version is available for i686 again.

Muito obrigado.

There was no increment in pkgrel because there was no change in the plugin. No reason to rebuild the package if you already have that version of the plugin.
