  • Amazon video playback isn't working for me on Opera for Mac OS X 10.8.3. I have Opera 37.0.

    It returns a DRM message:

    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.

    When I go to opera://plugins, it says the status of Widevine Content Decryption Module is enabled (or at least inferred by the only button label being, "Disable").

    Plugin info: com.operasoftware.Opera/WidevineCDM/

    What's interesting is I don't have any problem playing YouTube videos, but when I go to, it says the H.264 video is not working. When I check on Firefox, it is working and videos work on Amazon through Firefox for Mac.

    Any thoughts?


  • you should clear the cache, reset the preferences/settings and try again

  • Hi Drew, Opera only supports Widevine (which indeed is a DRM plug-in) on OS X 10.9 and newer.

  • Thanks for the feedback. That's a bummer...

  • @drew5316 If you still need help. I solved my issue. So there was nothing in my WidevineCdm folder in program files so what I did was I copied over the WidevineCdm folder from chrome (that i temporarily downloaded) because I saw netflix was working there. And boom! Now everything works. I have 4 files in my Program Files > Opera > "Version" > WidevineCdm > platform_specific > win

    • widevinecdm.dll
  • @ksuzy31 You do realize this is the Mac forum, and thus your Windows suggestion is of no help to him.

  • @ksuzy31 Congratulations, you got the Gravedigger Awards for have brought up an one year old topic.
