Please Fix The Ongoing Problem With Netflix and Your Widevine Content Decryption Module

  • Guys, about every 2 to 3 days now, my Netflix won't work in the Opera browser because of the Widevine Content Decryption Module! Can you PLEASE fix this thing so I don't have to constantly go to components and try to update the dang thin.g...

    Secondly, half the time when I check for update, it says "Component Out of Date" and it won't actually update...

    Very Very frustrating!


  • @bonzaii What version of Widevine do you have? Here it is and I don't get that 'out of date' message.

    Try the folowing:

    1. Close Opera
    2. Go to Opera's profile directory
    3. Enter the Widevinecdm folder
    4. Remove/rename the folder with the version number
    5. Start Opera
    6. Go to opera://components/
    7. Update the component
  • You can simply disable any of these, yet you'll lose functionality obviously. As usual, on the off chance that you see anything odd on your modules page, make sure to inquire about it somewhat more to ensure it's nothing that could cause issues regarding widevine Content Decryption Module.
