@enum Are you seeing this on Linux / Ubuntu. If so, fix is not yet released and which will not be available in 0.61.51.
If you want to test on Ubuntu please download beta/dev builds, fix is already merged.

In upcoming released version fix will be available for Linux/Ubuntu also.



Hey @gsarvadnya,
I use Windows 10 64 Bit version.

@enum in addition, if you’re on Windows or macOS, you need to enable Widevine first. It’s disabled by default.

On DRM-required site (Amazon,, etc), look for puzzle icon at URL bar > Install and run Widevine

Now I can see: Widevine Content Decryption Module - Version: 4.10.1196.0 at chrome://components/,
and I get again an error message: Video is not available

I’m able to visit and view Amazon Prime content without issue. Have you tried with Shields down? They shouldn’t need to be – They’re up when testing on my Win10 machine, but I’m curious if that makes a difference.

Now it works. That’s nice, isn’t there any way to have it with shields?

It works with active Shields except Ads & Tracker, those have to be turned off.


Thanks for the info! I’ll add this to the list of web compatibility issues we have so users can watch this content with full protections. Thank you again for reporting!
