Widevine cdm 13816.64.0

Just to double check if other users experience same:
A recent update of libwidevinecdm.so to 13816.64.0 gives
Unable to load widevine shared library
OpenDRMSystem failed
Reverting back to 13729.56.0 (hard link from userdata/addon_data/script.module.inputstreamhelper/backup/13729.56.0/libwidevinecdm.so to cdm/libwidevinecdm.so) solves issue.

Can’t play netflix so I think I’m encountered the same problem

From where do you get these version numbers?

Info from “InputStream Helper Information” => Widevine CDM version 4.10.1679.0 as the latest version, and Netflix and HBO_Go streams play without any problem…

13816.64.0, is a Chrome OS platform version. May 2021.


From where do you get these version numbers?

They also are the names of the backup directories held in /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.module.inputstreamhelper/backup/

/storage/.kodi/cdm/libwidevinecdm.so itself is a hard link to the most recent one there.

I reverted that link to second most recent one on my setup in order to tmp fix issue.

Use InputStream Helper to switch between different Widevine versions, upgrade/downgrade or backup and restore them, as well as to install Widevine. It will show version numbers also without having to use the shell.

It works now. Go to addons, update addons. Then go to InputStream Helper and reinstall Widevine :slight_smile:

Did you reboot after reinstall?
Can you give md5sum of /storage/.kodi/cdm/libwidevinecdm.so and give output of
ls /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.module.inputstreamhelper/backup
mine is
13505.111.0 13729.56.0 13816.64.0
and 13816.64.0 does not work after reinstall and reboot.
Also, InputStreamHelper v0.5.3 update does not fix problem for me.

No. I just reinstalled and it worked.

Can you give md5sum of /storage/.kodi/cdm/libwidevinecdm.so

3144866613a7f691b8cb07df6bbc4d80  libwidevinecdm.so

give output of
ls /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.module.inputstreamhelper/backup

13729.56.0 13816.64.0
