      BTW, why can kodi18+widevine play netflix with 1080p while chrome/firefox+widevine (exactly the same widevine version) plays at most 720p?

        One of the best features is the new Wayland support in Kodi, once compiled it works really stable and I use it since months. Hope distributions will provide a separate Kodi Wayland package, as far as I know it cannot switch at runtime.

          I guess i stick to 18 for a long time, until my used scrapers are usable in 19.

            How did you get it to play Netflix. What plugin or how? I looked for a possibility (got Netflix subscription) but could not see official plugin or anything.

              I've been speaking to one of their guys about getting it to play hardware accelerated video on the CODA960, frequently found on i.MX6. It seems like we're close now, there's some experimental ffmpeg patches regarding DRM PRIME that have been put forward. I didn't have any success with them yet though.

                It only works with Kodi 18 but AFAIK it's not from netflix themselves, so not "official":
