@eightam it's a known issue. We can't put widevinecdm into the repository because of the licensing issues but will see if we can put it in while building the app and not distribute it alongside the code.

How about using this as an electron replacement? https://github.com/castlabs/electron-releases

That error message is intended for chrome users, you can use it to find your local lib file.
More info for electron can be found here: https://electronjs.org/docs/tutorial/testing-widevine-cdm

Hm... I was hoping that Pennywise could be the solution for me to play Netflix in a floating window under macOS. Other solutions like Fluid Browser don't work for me since they use the Safari rendering engine which - in conjunction with my second monitor which doesn't support some HDCP requirements - also refuses to play Netflix because of DRM issues. Well, DRM sucks 😡

Close this as this is something I don't think can be done for a long time. Or at all

Not sure if this helps, but I had the same error code. Found the WidevineCdm component, it refused to update. Checked my AdBlock Chrome extension and even though there was nothing to block, I disabled it anyway on all Netflix pages. Reload and boom, no error code anymore.

@elkm-crypto did you install (and later uninstall) the AdBlock Chrome Extension inside of pennywise
