Running Ubuntu-Mate on a Raspberry Pi4. I follower Wimpy's guide and got it up and running through his script on github (desktopify).
Now, I have managed to enable hardware acceleration (OpenGL) on Firefox, I can see 720p videos on YT without any hiccups.
Unfortunately, I can't use Netflix. I get an error relative to DRM contents.
It is very strange, but the relative option on Firefox is not even there. The google plugin Widevine cannot be installed.
I have a similar problem with Chromium (which I thought should support DRM out of the box), however I would like to stick to Firefox, if possible.
Anyone can help me pls?
Hi, I've read that the Raspberry Pi 4 is not considered to be a trusted device and because of that Widevine isn't officially available, hopefully that will change in the future.
There is a hack that works with Chromium on Raspberry Pi OS, 32bit version only, as there isn't a 64bit ARM build of Widevine, hopefully that will change in the future as well, you can find all the info in the link below.
Thank you for your reply. Useful information there.
I was hoping to find a fix for Ubuntu-Mate, though...since this is the OS that I have (finally!) installed on my Raspberry Pi 4.
Damn it, finally got an OS that has hardware acceleration and now I can't enable widevine, why do these ■■■■■■■ idiotic companies make it so difficult for us because we choose not to run their ■■■■■■■■ proprietary operating systems !!!
