It should be noted that this is true only for the *Chrome* web browser and not
the *chromium* variant.

Trying to view streaming from Chromium, even with the proper library will fails
with an error complaining about a missing WidevineCdm and an error #14759.

Doing the same from Chrome works perfectly.

Thanks for adding the adequate library.

Kind regards,
