Widevine is a digital rights management (DRM) component utilized by streaming services such as Netflix and Disney+ to safeguard their content. If you encounter issues with Widevine on your device, you may be unable to stream high-quality content on platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and more.
Even if your device has received Widevine L1 certification and you’re still encountering problems with streaming services—like Disney+, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video—it’s possible that there’s an issue with the Widevine system ID or other configurations. Here’s what you can do:
Widevine System ID:
Each device is assigned a unique Widevine system ID during its manufacturing process. If your system ID displays “0,” this suggests a potential issue. Unfortunately, you may not be able to fix this problem independently. For assistance, consider reaching out to Xiaomi’s customer service.
Ensuring Your Device’s Software and Firmware are Updated
Regularly check that your device’s system software and firmware are up-to-date. Manufacturers often release updates to address compatibility issues and enhance the overall functionality of your device.
Implementing a Full Firmware Flash
If your device still isn’t functioning correctly despite updating the software and attempting to repair the system ID, consider executing a full firmware flash. This can be done using the Mi Flash tool.
