I started this thread about Widevine but it became Flash...
I really want widevine to work.. Flash is not that used anymore anyway.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
On Google Chrome I enabled flash playback with no success, it might be what you mentioned.
Flash on firefox for linux works great as well as widevine on both firefox and google chrome.
Unfortunately Opera does not and there seems no interest in opera to fix this.
Wow!! I just tried this page:
And flash is blocked even if I choose to let flash to be executed.
Opera Linux is still blocking flash content.
I right click and choose Run Plugin and it still does not work.
Opera Linux looks nice and works fast.. But... still needs to get this fixed.
I you soon to becone an Opera user.
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.
Too bad Opera doesn't support widevine on linux. It is a great web browser with very nice features but I usually watch netflix and have whatsapp on another tab firefox to be aware of my messages while charging my phone.
Please Opera, fix this!!
Why it does work on Windows and Not Linux (It's not fair to ignore linux)
