Operaa thinks Widevine Content Decryption Module is not enabled, when it is

  • yesterday i was able to stream amazon videos. starting this morning i couldn't. now, when i try to stream an amazon video i get the following notice:

    Digital Rights Error
    Your web browser is missing a digital rights component. In the address bar, go to opera://plugins and ensure Widevine Content Decryption Module is enabled. For further assistance, please contact Amazon Customer Service at www.amazon.com/videohelp and refer to error 7235.

    when i went to opera://plugins, it said that the module was enabled. i downloaded and installed again opera, opera beta (which is my primary browser), and chrome. no change, i cannot stream amazon videos. i can stream Youtube videos and stream from slingbox.

    please HELP

  • What version of Windows? Older versions may be missing some codecs, and maybe that is the actual problem ...
