Today I've noticed that chromium doesn't load widevine plugin (from www-plugins/chrome-binary-plugins) and I cannot watch netflix in browser. It definitely used to work but I'm not sure with which version.

There's no entry in chrome://components/ (https://s7.postimg.cc/v83kchsmj/screenshot_20180507_120758.png#) and Netflix shows error M7701-1003.

Code:
$ equery f chrome-binary-plugins
 * Searching for chrome-binary-plugins ...
 * Contents of www-plugins/chrome-binary-plugins-67.0.3396.30_beta:
/usr
/usr/lib64
/usr/lib64/chromium
/usr/lib64/chromium-browser
/usr/lib64/chromium-browser/libwidevinecdm.so -> ../chromium/libwidevinecdm.so
/usr/lib64/chromium/libwidevinecdm.so


Any ideas?

while i don't use chrome/chromium, i was looking into setting them up for netflix in the near future...

a quick gander at the history of chrome-binary-plugins gives me this https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/?id=652ed59680cf172d04e88004f69c964bfc4c552a

not sure if that's where things went wrong. does 66.0.3359.139 work?

Currently in portage there's www-plugins/chrome-binary-plugins-66.0.3359.139. Files are in fact with different names, but it doesn't work either.

Well, pepper(ppapi) CDM plugin is removed in 67. Only mojo CDM plugin is left. google says this.
I guess Netflix and others need to migrate to mojo CDM plugin?! No idea. :o

I keep 66 around until this is solved.

If anyone is interested in hacking chromium 67 to enable some more mojo cdm services for linux build may have a look here and enable these services here for case enable_library_cdms. Interesting features are renderer, audio_decoder and video_decoder.

Have fun hacking! :o

Back to square one. Today I've tried to watch Netflix and again Chromium doesn't show widevine in chrome://components/. Newest version 68.0.3440.25 with plugins 68.0.3440.33_beta. Both with "widevine" USE flag.
