    Hi Everybody. I had the same problem as all of you. Rebooted many times and it just didn't make a difference. Then I opened my File Manager: /home/pi and unzipped the chromium-browser_56.0.2924.84-.... file. After this was installed, it worked even without rebooting. Hope this helps. My really works now.

    This is rather weird. You see, I managed to install netflix onto my rasberry pi 3, model B, up until this week it worked fine. However, now it just does not work anymore. I tried to reinstall Chromium with widevine following the TechWiz suggested steps, slowly and carefully, but it won't work, anymore. It is as if someone working on Netflix has decided to make it more difficult to watch it with the rasberry pi.


    Question 3 months ago

    I just installed RASPBIAN STRETCH WITH DESKTOP (ver. June 2018) in my Raspberry Pi 3 and later I followed the steps suggested in your post. However, although I can find the NETFLIX shortcut in the INTERNET menu, nothing happens after launching it. I have restarted the Raspberry Pi many times but I have not succeeded. What do you recommend me? - Beforehand thank you very much.
