Each of the threads below is someone reporting the same problem (which I also have), with the same timing. Suddenly on 21 April 2021 all (?) major streaming sites started to give "The WidevineCDM plugin has crashed" message and ceased to work .

No suggested fix works. Reinstalling does not help, toggling DRM application does not help. It was obviously the update (at least for users on 78.10.0esr with OS X 10.9.5) that did it. Is there some way to get this registered as a bug?

Hello,


since the last automatic update of the Widevine Content Decryption Module (updated today, automatically) the plugin keeps crashing when I want to watch "TV" waipu.tv. I have already re-installed firefox etc, it just won't work.

I have submitted several crash reports, this is the latest: bp-7bc4b8a4-e59b-4f7e-a840-7c0720210422

See screenshot of "crashed"-notice below.

What can I do to fix this?

When I try to use a platform like Netflix i get repeated error messages that WidevineCdm has crashed. This happens also in other browsers. I am not very tech savvy, but I've tried all the solutions I was able to understand on here and through Google, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Can any one advise?

Not sure if this helps, but here is one of the many crash reports I've sent: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/75e61622-4282-4a83-b86e-9861a0210422

I'm on Arch Linux and recently updated Firefox to version 73.0 through pacman. I got no errors and Firefox works fine. Except that Widevine crashes whenever I visit Netflix or Amazon. I tried removing the plugin and reinstalling it, reinstalling Firefox and starting Firefox in safe mode. If anyone knows a solution to my problem your help would be much appreciated!

Is there a similar performing alternative to Google's Widevine on Firefox? If not, would I find one on a different browser?

Since I must add something in this box I'll just explain that Google is the most egregious violator of privacy and I want nothing to do with them
