Package: chromium-widevine
Version: 56.0.2924.76-5
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

With the upgrade to v.56.0 this extension no longer works.
Trying to force the load of the extensions to chromium doesn't work

No matter how I try to enable the extension, I got "Failed to load
extension from: . Manifest file is missing or unreadable."
