I have recently started using FreeBSD-12.1 with a Gnome-3 desktop.
When I tried to play amazon prime video title, it showed a grey screen which complained about missing DRM module "Widevine Content Decryption Module" and error 7235. I checked amazon help and it's about a plugin that needs to be enabled, which is not available. So, is it possible to play Prime video or watch Netflix in FreeBSD as of now?

As in natively? No. Google does not care to fix it and working around this would be quite a bit of ungrateful work with lots of pitfalls.

I think you might be able to do it by running a Linux binary of a browser with Widevine support though. I haven't tried it personally but i vaguely remember reading about it.

Thanks for the replies. Hoping Widevine made available soon.
