    Hi it seems that Widevine is broken in version 68.1 it looks like we have to wait for 68.2 to fix this issue, also you have to be on the 64bit version to work as 32bit not supposed anymore.

  • Blair Sutherland

    any way to roll back my T60 before 68.1? It's 32bit.. 

  • Blair Sutherland

    Also, Cloudready support, if in fact 64-bit versions no longer support widevine, please consider revising the above statement "As of v66.4 of CloudReady, all Editions have Widevine built in, similar to Chromebooks." Thank you.

    Hi Jesse, are you guys considering providing 68.0 version until there is a fix for the Widevine issue?

    I cannot play amazon prime video material on my Lenovo T520.

    The amazon error message refers to Widevine not being installed.

    Widevine does not appear in my list of chrome://components so I cannot update it (if that's the problem).

    Any advice and recommendations?



  • Alexandru Vladescu

    Hi Michael, I'm using the latest version of CloudReady and everything works fine, check what version you are using, the 68.1 had the issue with Widevine. Try an update to fix the problem.

  • Michael Edwards

    Alexandru, thanks very much for your advice.

    I'm using version 68.0.3440.134 which was the update pushed out a couple of weeks ago.

    I've been been taking the OTA updates rather than manually updating.

    When you say 68.1 does that mean there is an update on my current version that I have not yet installed?


  • Alexandru Vladescu

    That is the platform build number I'm talking about the CloudReady version which you can find in the tab "About CloudReady" I'm on 68.4.59 and next to it is the "check for updates" button. Hope this helps.

  • Michael Edwards

    Alexandru, thanks again for your help.

    I'm on 68.4.60 (based on the info in the top right corner of my screen at logon).

    However in the chrome components section there is no mention of Widevine.

    When I try and play an Amazon Prime video the message I get is that "Your web browser is missing a digital rights component.", which I understand is actually included in 68.4?  

    I don't appear to have a 'check for updates' button - but I'm on the Home edition.

    Maybe I should make a new installer and start again - I've been on Cloudready for quite a while just taking the updates.

    You could try to do a fresh install, if that doesn't help I'm not sure how I can help you.
