Odroid-xu4 chromium Netflix

Postby jbodhorn » Thu Apr 20, 2017 12:19 am

Does anyone know how to get Netflix to work on an xu4? I'm running arch with mate if it matters I tried installing widevine and pepper-flash but I get an error saying that they're not supported on armv7

for me worked (using chromium):

get this .deb
-->
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fi ... 9860659634

if you open it (I used Ark) extract data.tar.xz directory. included are the widevine components (originally from the last chromeos version, afaik the only existing widevine-armv7 builds!?) copy the content of lib/chromium-browser to /usr/lib/chromium and share to /usr/share.
Now you have to edit /usr/share/applications/netflix-launcher.desktop
change

Exec=chromium-browser --use-gl=egl --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS armv7l 6946.86.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.91 Safari/537.36" http://netflix.com

to

Exec=chromium --use-gl=egl --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS armv7l 6946.86.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.91 Safari/537.36" http://netflix.com

start chromium and open chrome://flags
enable the first entry: Override software rendering list
to get gpu acceleration (check with chrome://gpu)

should work, maybe try a few times. i got en error the first time, reloaded twice and since it works
