EDIT: I'm using pacaur 4.7.90

I was having the same failed validity check issue. As ixil commented, I had to remove 'browser' from the link. I also had to remove 'chrome-' from 'chrome-eula_text.html'.

I changed source=('chrome-eula_text.html::<https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/privacy/eula_text.html>'

to source=('eula_text.html::<https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/privacy/eula_text.html>'

The update worked perfectly after that.

The eula has moved if you / your aur helper doesn't follow the 302, change the source to: <https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/privacy/eula_text.html>

Note the removal of 'browser'. The checksum is correct, or use the --location --fail flags if manually getting it with curl

Failed. :(

The license has indeed been updated this time. This is totally separate from the comments last month.

The checksum for chrome-eula_text.html is really broken. It is fdabe95fea54cac48582fe8872cd7c1a5b3fbb38d0c0a9acc90ab91f8fbceeaf but the PKGBUILD says it must be cbfb7bc8d48ffc2dc6a86721c00b1662337bf72e7e63bffde783497cf36a43fa. I've tried several possibilities.

For those left without a possibility to install chromium-widevine: Just edit the PKGBUILD file in line 15. Replace the old checksum with the new one.

What package? The only ones I see are just the adapter lib, not the actual CDM.

Is there a reason why we can't pull the latest from debian's chromium-widevine package?

I also see that debian has ARM packages for chromium-widevine. Can you add ARM support for widevine here?

It also seems to be rarely updated. We tried that download before and it was months out of date.

An attempt at a 'lightweight' PKGBUILD. No need to download a full .deb. No checksum trouble for the chrome-eula_text.html as a bonus (although I'm not sure this covers all legalistics).

For the chrome-eula_text.html issue, it works fine for me, but I end up deleting everything and re-clone into the git repo. If you use an AUR helper like yaourt or pacaur, please consult your AUR helper documentation of what to delete.
