DRM-contents finally working in Slimjet!

Post by mardimus » Sun Jul 14, 2019 6:05 am

It was about time! I just installed Slimjet 23.0.9 and all drm-contents work as they should. I had already given up all hope that this problem would ever get solved. Now Slimjet has gone back to my default browser. Thanks!

Oh well, it seems we have come back to normal. With latest Slimjet 23.0.10.0 version drm-contents stopped working again. I give up. Back to Firefox it is from now on...

I guess it's not over until it's over. I managed to get drm-contents work after all... :lol:
Just a simple trick was needed. I copied libwidevinecdm.so binary from Google Chrome straight to Slimjet and that was it. Weird thing is that it hasn't worked before...
Well, as I mentioned the procedure was very simple. Just copy the libwidevinecdm.so from /opt/google/chrome/ to /opt/slimjet. That's it.

P.S. of course you have to first install Google Chrome if you're not using it already. Oh, and btw, there's a good site where to check if the drm streams are working ok: https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm
