Widevine For Residence Life Cinema and Digital Campus

Residence Life Cinema ( and Digital Campus require Widevine player to be downloaded on your machine.  If you do not have it, you should be prompted to downloaded.  Some browsers work better for this than others.

Windows Machines:  Internet Explorer sees to be the best browser to download it.

Mac machines:  Safari seems to be the best platform to download it.

Chrome is claimed to not need it. But if you have problems try downloading it on Internet Explorer for Windows Machines or Safari for Macs.

Firefox.  The versions after 43 do not support Widevine, but if you loaded it before you upgraded to the later versions it will still work on later versions.  There is a reported work around for those who want to use Firefox at

Edge.  Swank is currently working to make this browser usable.
