Please make sure to run the registering scripts register_widevine_firefox and/or register_widevine_chromium for every user that needs to be able to use widevine. This script only needs to be run once; no need to repeat it after upgrade.

@Irontobind: I got the same "Not available to watch instantly" on Netflix and all I needed to do was a refresh and it started working. Just thought I'd add my experience to share for others too. Can't trust these Agile developed apps anymore. Have to use brute force.

For those interested, I created a small script for Netflix, which allows to check versions for Widevine and set the user agent. It works also for Prime Video ;-) I don't know why but since a moment, I have to run register_widevine_chromium each time so it's now integrated in the script directly.

/usr/local/bin/chromium-netflix

#!/bin/sh -e

/usr/bin/register_widevine_chromium

CHROMIUM="/usr/lib/chromium/chromium"
FLASH_LIB="/usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so"
WIDEVINE_LIB="/opt/WidevineCdm/chromium/libwidevinecdm.so"
CHROMIUM_VERSION=$(${CHROMIUM} --version|awk '{print $2}')
CHROMEOS_VERSION=13099.110.0
USER_AGENT="Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS armv7l ${CHROMEOS_VERSION}) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/${CHROMIUM_VERSION} Safari/537.36"
URL="https://www.netflix.com/browse"

CHROMIUM_VERSION=$(chromium --version)
FLASH_VERSION=$(grep -Eaom1 'LNX\ ([0-9]+\,){3}[0-9]+' ${FLASH_LIB}|awk -F " " '{print $2 }'|sed -e "s|,|.|g")
WIDEVINE_VERSION=$(grep -Eaom1 '([0-9]+\.){3}[0-9]+' ${WIDEVINE_LIB})

echo "${CHROMIUM_VERSION}"
echo "WideVine: ${WIDEVINE_VERSION}"
echo "PepperFlash: ${FLASH_VERSION}"
echo "User Agent: ${USER_AGENT}"

${CHROMIUM} --use-gl=egl --ppapi-flash-path=${FLASH_LIB} --ppapi-flash-version=${FLASH_VERSION} -password-store=detect -user-data-dir --user-agent="${USER_AGENT}" --app="${URL}"

@Irontobind: Well, that problem has nothing to do with this package. It's the netflix website being pedantic. Netflix is actually checking your user agent. If you're running an arm browser and the user agent is not chromeos, then it will not grant access... Changing your browser's user agent to chromeos will fix it.

PS: This was already mentioned a few comments down.

This package got rid of the "something went wrong" error thanks! I am however getting now "Not available to watch instantly" on Netflix. Is this something I can fix in the install or something else entirely?

mogwai commented on 2021-03-19 15:04

This package has been updated to extract the widevine library from the official raspberrypios deb-package. No need to download a huge chromeos image file anymore!

@dobo: Thanks for the link to the package! After reading that news yesterday, I spent more than an hour trying to find that package on the raspbian mirrors. I gave up, but apparently that was too soon, or I was looking at the wrong mirror. :-) I'll definitely update this AUR package soon.

dobo commented on 2021-03-19 12:44

A suggestion: Raspbian now contains widevine in their official repositories 1. We can grab the binaries from widevine_4.10.1679.0.orig.tar.xz 2. Maybe you should consider switching to that source instead of unpacking the ChromeOS rootfs.

mogwai commented on 2021-02-19 07:49

It seems that the chromium widevine patch has been accepted upstream!
The package is currently still being built. It should land in chromium version 88.0.4324.182-1.1.

Edit: I've just tested the official armv7h package, and I can confirm that widevine (as installed through this package) now works!
