Package: chromium-widevine
Version: 60.0.3112.78-1
Severity: important

The chromium-widevine package is missing libwidevinecdm.so which libwidevinecdmadapter.so
is the wrapper around, and needs to link to in order to work.

The chromium-widevine package is non functional and serves no purpose without it.

Note both of the files in question like the pepper flashplugin are proprietary binary blobs
and only available through chrome, they are not built with or shipped with chromium sources.
