Porting QTWebflix(Netflix app) to Ubuntu touch?
hello everyone, I recebtly stumbled across this project named QTWebflix.
it allows you to watch netflix and other streaming services on Linux.
it seems to be viable for Ubuntu touch, it uses Qt+QtWebengine and qmake.
I was planning on porting it myself but I have no idea where to start, is there a guide somewhere on how to build Qt+qmake applications to Ubuntu touch?
any help is greatly appriciated

I'd say, have a look at clickable it makes compilation for UT easier.
You can check those links, it might help or point in the right direction :
@AppLee ah thanks! I will have a look at those!

Your core problem here is, and will remain, the fact that there is no generally available build of Widevine plug-in for ARM. The only way to get Widevine on ARM is from the ChromeOS image, which is a 2+GB download from which you need to extract a single tiny binary file.
It is not legal to redistribute the Widevine plug-in yourself, either.

@ComLarsic I would expect if that does have widevine it is indeed not usable, given it's not from https://www.widevine.com/
Also those are really old builds of chromium (which itself doesn't come with widevine anyway, so that's confusing too).
Basically, if it was acceptable to distribute the Widevine plug-in in this manner, then we'd already have it anyway, because Qt/Debian/Ubuntu/etc… would provide it too.

I'd still take it even if the user has to manually download and extract the needed . It's better than nothing
Marius teased netfilx on Morph though. Maybe he knows something
