There have been questions similar to this, but they were for an older version (which was fixed) and those solutions did not work. Hence, a new question. I have ubuntu 18.04 and the latest version of google chrome (71). I tried using Netflix and primevideo on Opera but it threw an error asking me to enable Widevine Content Decryption Module in
opera://plugins. I figured it uses google chrome's
libwidevine.so and checked in
chrome://components but the module was not listed.
I tried installing google chrome from the official website and through apt install. But neither of them had the component and Opera didn't recognize the .so file present in chrome's folder.
I also tested using the castlabs but the player does not load in opera.
Note: Firefox has no problem in playing DRM content.
