WidevineCdm plugin crash
Last week (14 April 2021) I was able to watch videos on netflix and hulu. This week (21 April 2021), however, a yellow bar appears across the top of the page, saying, on the left-hand side: "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed Learn more...", and, on the right-hand side, "[Reload page] [Submit a crash report]". Repeated submissions of crash reports, as well as repeated reloading of the page, results in exactly the same: same yellow bar, same inability to watch videos. Likewise, clicking on "Learn more" merely results in the widevine.com page, which states that the company does not service end-users. In addition, last week (14 April 2021), I purchased a video on youtube, and watched part of it. This week (21 April 2021), wanting to watch the rest of the video, all I encounter is: "Your browser can't play this video. Learn more." Clicking on "Learn more" yields "Your browser is up to date. You can use YouTube's latest features!" Repeat ad nauseam. So, it seems that, even though my browser is up-to-date, I am still unable to watch videos on either youtube, hulu, or netflix.
