SOLVED: Netflix Requires Widevine Content Decryption Module

#1

Netflix reports missing component error when attempting to actually play a video.

HTTPS://NETFLIX.COM

Error occurs using default Shields settings and also when those setting are turned off. I am allowing protected content to be played.

Error does not occur in Chrome (my version of chrome includes Widevine content decryption module)

Brave browser version is 0.60.48 Chromium: 72.0.3626.121 (Official Build) (64-bit) on MacBook Air.

@Ernie, you need to enable Widevine first. It’s disabled by default.

On Netflix or other DRM-required sites (spotify.com etc), look for puzzle icon at URL bar > Install and run Widevine.

Thanks
