Ubuntu 16.04 - Problem with DRM

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

It's my first post here and my english isn't good, so I hope your eyes will not bleed ๐Ÿ˜‹

I want to ask you guys about Ubuntu 16.04 and his problems with DRM content. I mean, I want to watch sports, movies etc on providers sites from my country (Poland).

When I enter site and choose one of the channels, it's just don't start and says "DRM - no license given".

I read in internet, that is normal problem for Linux, cuz they (providers) don't support this systems. I don't know it's true.

Is there any chance to fix it? I started using Ubuntu around a one week ago, so i'm totally new.

ย 

Good Day Everyone!

Greetings

Ubuntu 16.04 Reached end of life April 30th, 2021. You should really consider upgrading to a new release.

I consume very limited DRM Protected content, but from my experience Firefox will usually prompt to install the DRM dependencies the first time you try to view something that is protected, usually it just works afterwards. For other browser I have no idea.

It can be problematic yes, but the first step to have a chance of this "modern" stuff working is not to use a 6 year old distribution that's obsolete and doesn't get updates anymore.ย

update your distro to something that still has support

update your browser to the latest version of some actively developed browser (firefox, chrome/chromium, etc.)

ย 

also, how the heck did you end up on ubuntu 16.04 when you got started with linux last week?

My PC (laptop) is very old. Something around 12 years or so. It's Toshiba Satellite A200.

I tried install on him latest Ubuntu or Pop OS 22.04, but in install process, I had a lot of errors which i couldn't fix. Propably bcuz here is x32 processor (core 2 duo) not x64. Also even if it's possible to install this systems, here is only 3GB of RAM, so it will be killers for this hardware ๐Ÿ˜…

ย 

Yes, i using Mozilla Firefox. It looks like be newest possible (version 88.0 / 32bits).

OK so, its, propably too old to work... Thank you guys for your time ๐Ÿ™‚

Good Day All!

You don't need the latest and greatest, you just need something that works. What you need is something that's still supported.

Yea, sure. But seems like DRM's are often updated, so in this situation software must be newest possible ๐Ÿ™‚

no you just need something thats supported. For example, Firefox's ESR release is still under v100 but you can watch DRM content with it fine.

Finally I dealt with it. I changed distro for Xubuntu 22.04 and DRM's are no longer problem.

Funny thing is that on one of the sites is information. "We don't support Linux systems, so content could be in part or whole unavailable", but still playing perfectly fine ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it end even better than working on previous distro. Xubuntu is better for this hardware. Thanks guys for taking me on good road ๐Ÿ™‚

Good Day All!
