So I'm finally getting around to trying to use chrome's version of the widevinecdm* plugins in chromium.

Unfortunately, I am getting a redirect loop on Netflix, but I'm not sure if that's because the widevine plugins aren't working correctly or not.

I have installed v45 of both Chrome and Chromium on my 64it Ubuntu 14.04.

Then I ran:

sudo cp /opt/google/chrome/libwidevinecdm* /usr/lib/chromium-browser/

Upon pointing Chromium at netflix, and selecting a show to watch (eg; Sense8 http://www.netflix.com/watch/80025752), it drops into a redirect loop and Chromium shows me the error page.

I can successfully load and watch that same URL in Google Chrome.

Any ideas?
