    Installing Widevine on Chromium 32bits browser for Linux.

    I need to install Widevine on Chromium 32bits browser for Linux, to be able to play DRM content. Could anyone tell how to do it?

    I would start by finding the Widevine documentation and following that. Have you tried this and, if so, which part are you stuck on? It may also help to have additional context on what sort of DRM content you're trying to play and why it has to be on a 32-bit browser.

    Is this on a Raspberry Pi by any chance?

    I'm using a 32 bits machine in which, nevertheless, runs a last generation Linux OS that includes a 32 bits latest official build Chromium browser. Unfortunately, the browser does not include the Widevine plug-in and it seems that the 32 bits Widevine package is not available to download anymore. Where could I get the 32 bits Widevine package for Chromium for Linux? Is there any alternative package to replace Widevine?

    It is not Ubuntu Linux.

    Widevine dropped support for 32-bit linux in 2021 or so.
    So even if you could install it the chances of the vendors still allowing access with it are small.

    Yes, I supposed that the 32bits Widevine package was not supported anymore because I've been searching the web for days and I couldn't find a site from where to download it; but, precisely, this is the reason why I decided to post the inquiry about installing Widevine on a 32 bits browser. Then, could you please tell me where I could get the latest 32bits Widevine deb package or any alternative deb package to replace it?
