Chrome Has a Bug That Makes It Easy To Pirate Movies

These are the movies that are encrypted and are copy-protected. The researchers notified of the potential bug on May 24, but Google still has to respond to the problem.

The Bug: What It Can Do

When Google Chrome users stream media through the browser, they can create a copy of the movie easily. The problem looks simple but in reality, not everyone can download the movie when streaming via Chrome.

The issue is with the Widevine, which is the digital management system owned by the Google. Widevine is responsible for decrypting the encrypted videos from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other online streaming sites. These sites have strict content protection systems in place to keep the content secure. The idea is to only allow the viewers to see the video on the browser. Downloading the videos is not allowed in any case.

DVDFab Video Converter Converts Videos to the Correct Formats Compatible on Any Target Devices

You might have experienced the awkward moment when you are ready to watch a piece of video sent by your friend on your iPhone, iPad or even computer only to find that the native media player software just gives you a black screen, meaning that you are not able to watch that piece of video.

Possible solution? There are two. Option one is to find a 3rd party media player software which can cope with the video codec, however, this approach sometimes can take you nowhere, because for one thing, you cannot confirm the exact codec of that video so that you can locate a matched video player accordingly, and for another, you don’t want to try endlessly one candidate after another until you find the correct one, do you?
