Hi, do you know how to change the useragent of this ? I ask this because, on ArchlinuxARM (armv7h version), the "Netflix app" starts well, but Netflix doesn't work. I think this is linked to this : Netflix doesn't allow the default qtws UserAgent which is Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux armv7l) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) QtWebEngine/5.15.2 Chrome/83.0.4103.122 Safari/537.36. On ArchlinuxARM, Netflix works fine in Firefox with the following UserAgent : Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS armv7l 9592.96.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/60.0.3112.114 Safari/537.36

Maybe there is a way to detect the used system, and if it detects armv7 it sets this specific UserAgent for people using this architecture ? :)

Just for information : when installing qdesktop-netflix from AUR on ArchlinuxARM, my AUR Helper advertise me saying there is no available architecture for the current system, and then asks me if I want to compile anyway. I chose yes, and qtws starts correctly.

Also, I checked if Widevine was well detected by qtws and, yes it is. I checked this way : forked netflix.qtws into another file, which access to (instead of So, the WidevineCdm part is not in cause, it is just the UserAgent :)

Work, but the question is to 4k,HD audio does it work?
Or is it like a browser client?
Full screen (on/off), no problems works F11.

If there is core dump due to memory leakage, I think the way to go is to post a bug report. Because how can you recover a memory space loosed without fix the bug ? The memory space has been used the bad way and did not clean, you have to reboot to clean the memory as long as you can not handle back the memory leak and clean it.

FadeMind commented on 2020-04-12 05:20 (UTC)

Cause some resons netflix-qdesktop cannot be launched AGAIN after closing. Terminal results from command is memory leak (core dump) no more. For fix issue tempolary I need to REBOOT system, relogin does nothing. Ideas?

Can you create the app without the scrollbar?

jerome2016 commented on 2019-11-21 11:23 (UTC)

When start a movie, error N7701-1003 because it doesn't find the chrome component widevinecdm. This one seems to be used for html5 video and DRM for stream.

Please fix the icon .desktop line change the line Icon=netflix-desktop.png to Icon=netflix-desktop so it can show the right icon the menu

No longer works: just white screen. Probably since last Qt update but maybe earlier.

Ran the command from netflix-desktop.desktop in bash. This is the only output:

Attribute Qt::AA_ShareOpenGLContexts must be set before QCoreApplication is created.

Please add chromium-widevine (aur) as dependancies. @InsaneSanity this will fix the "Missing Component" problem :)

InsaneSanity commented on 2019-05-07 10:46 (UTC)

I'm getting "Missing Component" error when trying to watch any shows. It says I am missing "WidevineCdm" component and should check chrome://componenents?

simonescalabrino commented on 2019-05-02 09:00 (UTC)

Just updated qtws-base, now it works again.

psittacus commented on 2019-04-30 11:01 (UTC)

netflix-qdesktop with its dependencies is not working with makepkg. qt5-webengine-widevine is outdated i guess? A temporary bugfix is replacing qt5-webengine-widevine with qt5-webengine, so it builds without errors. But after I have installed it with makepkg --install it wasn't found anywhere installed

mikeccuk2005 commented on 2019-04-13 05:12 (UTC)

error: target not found: qt5-webengine-widevine I don't think this is in aur anymore
