Google doesn't seem to be keeping the direct download up to date. If it isn't updated, I'll have to switch this back to extracting it from Chrome. :(

Any command line switch. For flash, it's --ppapi-flash-path. If they end up doing something similar for Widevine, we could put this in a more generic path and just let everything use it. I'm asking if they're moving that direction, since I don't follow Chromium development that much and the separate download seems to indicate they might be.

what command line switch?

i only put the library into /usr/lib/chromium-dev

i'm not sure if upstream maked something about the widevine as pepperflash does

sl1pkn07, does chromium-dev use a command line switch for widevine now? With a separate download available, including a manifest.json, I'm wondering if they're going to handle it like they do the ppapi flash plugin. If they are, we can get support added to the wrapper and combine most/all of the widevine packages.

seems widevine provided by chromium dev channel is the same

b713d924f429bbee515d9f8b837e83422f1d95fb619e9325ec6d30bf5fb8710f /usr/lib/chromium-dev/

can you add support to chromium-dev too?
