Netflix missing Widevine with one user but not with others

  • I'm using Opera 33 with Windows 7 Pro. Netflix works for the 4 other users or with I.E. but for my user I get the following error:

    Whoops, something went wrong...
    Missing Component
    We cannot find all the required components to play Netflix on this device. Please visit chrome://plugins, ensure that the "Widevine Content Decryption Module" plug-in is enabled and that the "Always allowed" setting is checked.

    Deleting my User is not an option. I really don't want to uninstall Opera (somewhat of an annoyance to the other users). Is there a way to remove the Widevine component and then reinstall that component? I imagine this problem will occur with other people and possibly with other plugins active but not working properly.


  • Also have this problem

  • Type opera://plugins/ in your address bar. Is Widevine present and enabled?
