Netflix, state of the art?
#36
We have a stable Chromium-Armv7 application which can work quite smoothly on PBP and play netflix and Amazon as per my test. Some one can also try Spotify.

I have created a package called chromium-docker and uploaded in to unstable branch. It is a tiny pkg with a script which will fetch and install all the things needed for widevine, Chromium armv7 and dockers. 

Users can try it  from unstable branch, If you have existing dockers image then please remove it first using 
**This will remove all the docker images**
Command to remove existing/all docker images

Code:
sudo docker system prune -a --volumes


Command to install chromium-armv7 package

Code:
sudo pacman -U https://www.uex.dk/public/manjaro/arm-unstable/community/aarch64/chromium-docker-4.10.1610.6-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz

This package will take some time as it will download and install around 3Gig of data. Please try it on emmc as Sd-card will take long time for extraction of widevine.
After if is installed you will see Chromium-Armv7 in application launcher. 

Running it will get you chromium with HW Acc and Widevine.

Known issues:
  • Setting page will crash
  • Sometimes docker permission is not set.
For the permission to be set correctly where a user should be able to run docker without sudo, users will have to reboot once, If it doesn't help then pass the following command.

Code:
sudo groupadd docker

sudo usermod -aG docker $(whoami)

sudo reboot now

Can also watch in 1080p if you want, This will need to be added manually by the user. I have not enable it by default on purpose.
To enable Netflix-1080p Plugin inside Chromium

Navigate to Setting > More Settings > Extension > Enable Developer Mode > Load Unpacked > Browse /usr/lib/chromium-browser/netflix-1080p > Restart Chromium-Armv7

You can check the resolution on Netflix Video Player using Ctrl + Shift + Alt + D and Switch Resolution with Ctrl + Shift + Alt + S
You can set highest bitrate by default in option of netflix-1080p plugin also.

Thanks to @hthiemann  and @PakoSt for their effort.

Enjoy & Stay Safe.
