Description of the issue:
Hi there,
When I visit https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm using Brave apk downloaded from Google Play, the site tells me that this browser supports Widevine DRM.
But when I build it myself, it does not support Widevine .

I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me how to enable Widevine in Brave apk?

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Build from source code using “ninja -C out/Default chrome_public_apk”
  2. Install the apk I built
  3. Visit https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm

Expected result:
The site detects Widevine DRM

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Built by myself, synced the code at Dec.17 2019

Mobile Device details
Device integrated Widevine L1.
Brave app from Google Play is OK

Additional Information:

You will need to sign Widevine component for making it work in builds. Local builds wont work because the component isn’t signed when building the apk’s
