I'm trying to install chromium-browser:armhf and libwidevinecdm0 on my Raspberry Pi (Ubuntu 21.10 64 bit) by doing the following command:

sudo apt install chromium-browser:armhf libwidevinecdm0

According to this instruction.

But I'm getting the following output:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package chromium-browser:armhf
E: Unable to locate package libwidevinecdm0

EDIT: It seems that there is new 64-bit version (from https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=347736) is there a way to install it on Raspberry pi 4 with Ubuntu 22.10 64-bit?

Those instructions are for Raspberry Pi OS, not Ubuntu.

You could enable armhf on Ubuntu with

sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf && sudo apt update

but that won’t help since, as far as I can tell from a quick look, Ubuntu doesn’t ship libwidevinecdm0.

If you want Chrome with Widevine on your Raspberry Pi, install Raspberry Pi OS.

If you really want to try installing Widevine on Ubuntu, you can try the packages available in the Raspberry Pi OS repositories; however, these are built for Raspberry Pi OS, not Ubuntu, so there’s no guarantee they’ll work there.

  • thanks to forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=347736 it seems that there is new 64-bit version that came out, is there a way to install it on Ubuntu?

  • is there a way to "connect" it to apt so if there is an update it will be installed automatically or install the chromium version that comes with widevine built in?
