Being the developer of Pi-Apps, I've done my best to provide solutions. For example, I've made it quick and easy to downgrade back to chromium v78.
But for (obvious) reasons, downgrading is not ideal...
Now, I've gotten Chromium v84 to play Widevine video! Thanks to several others's help & suggestions, I was able to locate which files were necessary to make it work.
And unlike any other script, my version does not download a 2GB file to obtain the widevine files.
You can manually install it by following the instructions on my Github repo, but if you value your time I suggest using Pi-Apps. (also installing manually doesn't create a menu launcher for you, so some DRM sites won't work without that ChromiumOS user-agent.)
If you haven't already, install the Pi-Apps Raspberry Pi app store with these 2 commands:
Code: Select all
git clone https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps ~/pi-apps/install
Audio works well too, and no, pulseaudio is not required.
This site lets you test for Widevine. You may find it useful.
That's it for now folks. Enjoy!
