Netflix Error Code M7053-1803



  • Hey guys,
    I have been having some trouble getting netflix to work with vivaldi. I have followed all the instructions in this link https://help.netflix.com/en/node/32960 however have been unable to resolve the problem. I was wondering if anyone else was having the same issue and knew of a work around. I have also tried disabling all of my plugins which was no help either.
    Thanks,
    UndeadHacker

    Well, I don't use Netflix, but there have been quite a lot of posts on these forums about them.
    The two main problems seem to be:

    1. About a year ago, needed to change the Browser User Agent as Netflix did not recognise Vivaldi. This should be OK now though.

    2. You need the "Widevine CDM" plug-in. So make sure you have NOT disabled this.

    You don't mention if it worked on previous versions of Vivaldi so just to check:-
    you need Codecs etc. So if you have Windows N version then try installing

    • Windows Media Player
    • Media Feature Pack


  • @TbGbe I did check the Widevine CDM plugin. It was not set to always run so I changed that however that did not seem to make a difference. I have windows media player but I am unsure what Media Feature Pack is. Also I am running windows 10 if that helps.

    It depends on which Windows 10 you have. You need it if you you have "Windows N ".
    See https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/3133719/media-feature-pack-for-n-editions-of-windows-10-version-1607



  • @TbGbe Note: You may already have all the codecs etc. This is just to be sure.

    If it still doesn't work, can you describe what happens in more detail?
