Netflix uses Widevine Content Decryption Module and looks like this component have some issues. Firework based on NW.js technology, NW.js has low priority request to resolve this issue.


We will try to search some workaround. Maybe it can be resolved by copying some DLL files. I will be frank; most likely, fixing will take a lot of time. We will increase priority of this task if someone else request such functionality.


Thank you Lucas.

Okay Great. Beside this great work :)

An Option to completely hide the top window Bar (or make it adapt itself to the content below) would be great for Multimedia sides like Netflix or Youtube in my Opinion would make it look even more like a standalone Program. 

Great idea! I have added it to Backlog. Thanks!
