@jimunderscorep said in Widevine and Opera:
You can create a free spotify account.
Once I login to play.spotify.com I got this:
For: Google Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.
If you see the message “Playback of protected content is not enabled” (or a similar error message) when you try to use the web player, you simply need to enable the Widevine plugin or download a media pack. Select your browser below to find out how.
Note: Enabling the plugin requires no download and will not compromise your online security.
On Opera for Windows I could not make spotify Play, probably since it was downloading widevine. I tried music.google.com and I could not play music eigther, but after a minute I was able to play on both of them.
I really like Opera, it has very nice features but it lacks of widevine. I saw that there is a config file pointing to google chrome,s widevine libraries but it still does not work..
I hope this is fixed soon and I bet many Linux users would use Opera as default.
