SkyShowtime - does not work in firefox

Hi. As the topic. I bought the skyshowtime service and wanted to watch a movie but I get error 6007.

I got the idea that I am following the tips in this post for watching movies on disney+

I got the effect that the player menu is shown with a black screen on which the loading circle is spinning and after 5 seconds the error window pops up again

  • try using another browser…chromium?
  • try enabling DRM in Firefox settings
  • torrent whatever you want to watch

Some content providers don’t want you to use Linux to view the page.

For some time, it was (and maybe still is?) possible to change the browser’s user agent to fake that it’s running on Windows. There might even be browser plugins to do this automatically, but there is no guarantee and I think the resolution is limited to 720p.

I have user agent installed in my browser. Enabling the user agent doesn’t change anything.

:woman_shrugging: That’s why I said “probably”.

Linux is not supported by SkyShowtime, bastards.

An idea came to my mind. Is it possible to run android apps on manjaro? If so, installing the skyshowtime app would allow you to watch movies?

I think you can install an Android emulator. However, I guess that the app in question has options to detect this and will not work.

How to install android emulator on manjaro?

And here Waydroid - ArchWiki

As much as I hate it, maybe try… <ptui!> …Edge?
