How to get Netflix to work in Chromium or Firefox on PBP

I don't know.  Does Ubuntu/Elementary OS show a docker package in the software repository?My understanding is that the two issues are Widevine not being available for the arm64 / rock chipset used in the PBP and that coupled with being a 64 bit chip.  My understanding is the docker package allows a "container" to  be created for the Chromium armhf to run in.  I don't know that my understanding is very deep as I am definitely a noob with Linux/Arm64/PBP/Manjaro.
Try it and see!  Unlikely to see any thing other than it doesn't work.

Ok, it works Smile
There is a Netflix plugin for kodi.

It is SW decoding only, but it does work. (I use it on a raspberry pi). Kodi is readily available in basically all distros
Just tried the Chromium Docker solution.
It works but the video quality is poor and the audio won't go through Bluetooth.
