Alright has anyone tried blocking the Widevine thing from Netflix and experienced a non-working Netflix on Brave?

It’s all there in the title.

On Brave’s help center:

WidevineCDM (Content Decryption Module) is a DRM component used in Chromium based desktop and Android browsers. It is used to decrypt, decode, or enable playback of DRM protected video content. Widevine is disabled in Brave by default and must be explicitly installed before it can be enabled.”

So I see blocking it was a bad choice. However, is there any way to resolve this without Widevine involved?

Afraid not. Widevine is required to play videos on Netflix.

I think this one needs to be solved by support.
