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}/

b713d924f429bbee515d9f8b837e83422f1d95fb619e9325ec6d30bf5fb8710f /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.

@Scimmia The last update was missing an increment in pkgrel. Therefore package managers won't show a package update. Would be nice if you increment it when the pkgver stays unchanged.

Can someone be so kind and respond to my previous question? I'm stuck here.

Scimmia, 'google-chrome' cannot be installed on armv7 but I've installed Ubuntu with chromium on my armv7 device and it supports Widevnie. Would that help? can I re-purpose the '' file that I see in the Ubuntu installation onto my arch-linux build?
Thanks very much

Does it work on Chrome on ARMv7? If not, there's nothing we can do.
