We now have a working solution ! thanks to the great work of saiarcot895 and fabian.r )

You can use this PPA

https://launchpad.net/~saiarcot895/+archive/ubuntu/chromium-beta

Extract the libwidevinecdmadapter.so and libwidevinecdm.so from the /opt/google/chrome beta 43 directory ( we will package a plugin for this later.)

And copy both files to /usr/lib/chromium-browser/

Launch chromium and you're done !

The great point is that saiarcot895 has enable VAAPI support in these chromium builds so now you can watch SUPERHD netflix on low end Intel Soc like Baytrail ( you couldn't even with chrome ....)

Please confirm it works on your side.
