The title is pretty self explanatory, but I'll try to write as many details as possible, because this problem has been driving me nuts for the past few hours.
Yesterday, I installed 18.04.2 LTS on my personal computer, the minimal version.
Today, I tried accessing Netflix using Google Chrome, version 72.0.3626.121 (Official Build) (64-bit) and Firefox, version 65.0.1 (64-bit).
However, no matter what I do, I keep getting this error:
Netflix Site Error. We were unable to process your request. Please go to the Netflix home page by clicking the button below.
Obviously, I did my best to search this issue and found a few answers, which unfortunately, did not fixed my problem.
Here are the things that I've tried:
- DRM is enabled in my Firefox settings
- I have installed the libavcodec-extra package through the commands provided here: Netflix doesn't work since installing Ubuntu 18.04
- I have installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras package as suggested here: Netflix not working on Firefox 60.0.1 64-bit on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
As far as I know, Netflix should work natively on Google Chrome. In my case, it doesn't. As I was writing, I quickly installed Opera and tried accessing Netflix, but ran into the same issue.
I'm running out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Later edit After some updates, Netflix has started working again. No idea why though or if the updates had anything to do with it.
