Libwidevine gets official support for RPI


Raspberry Pi OS Gets Official Widevine Support (Allowing You To Play Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Etc.)

Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian) now officially supports Widevine, allowing its users to stream content from popular websites such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Go, Disney+, Spotify, Pandora and more, using its default Chromium web browser

Any plans to add this package to OSMC so it dont rely on the hack from Team Kodi ?

I support the request. Question I ask myself though, is if it will work (in terms of license and stuff)

In short, no.

We have an agreement with Google and it would not allow for this. Our plan is to support L1 and HDCP 2.2 in the near future on Vero.

If other addons want to use Pi servers to fetch Widevine without the multi GB Chrome image download then Iā€™m sure they can and will do this in time.

But adding this package to OSMC on unlicensed platforms would violate our existing MLA agreement.


Kind of expected this. And it is Ok.
Thx for the fast reaction on this Sam :slight_smile:
