Widevine issues with Netflix

OS: Linux Mint 20.2 x64
unable to play videos on netflix.com. After clicking play, error screen reads:
Pardon the interruption We're having trouble playingNetflix. Please visit chrome://components, Find "Widevine Content Decryption Module" and click the "Check for update" button. Error code 07701-1003
I have tried to go to opera://components and update the widevine mentioned there, but netflix still does not work. I have reviewed https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/opera/linux_widevine_config
I have tried on Opera stable 80.0.4170.63 and I get the same problem.
I have tried this in Google Chrome Beta 96.0.4664.18 and Netflix works fine.
Steps to (try to) reproduce the issue:
Logon to netflix, then play a video.

I have solved my issue.
It turns out the libffmpeg.so I was using in lib_extra directory was the problem. While one version of libffmpeg.so might fix Twitter or Instagram problems they do not necessarily fix DRM Netflix or Spotify issues which uses Widevine.
To fix the problem:
I downloaded https://repo.herecura.eu/herecura/x86_64/opera-beta-ffmpeg-codecs-95.0.4638.32-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst from https://repo.herecura.eu/herecura/x86_64/ as mentioned in https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/opera/linux_libffmpeg_config .
moved the libffmpeg.so to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-beta/lib_extra/libfmpeg.so and now I am all up and running.
