Widevine is a DRM Module (security feature), whose main function is to open encrypted media (Video) to avoid video piracy.
That’s why when you download a video on Netflix you can only watch it in the app, it can’t be opened via the file manager & the video doesn’t appear in your gallery, right?
In order to get the maximum Netflix viewing experience on mobile, there are several things that must be considered besides internet speed, namely the certificate that is embedded, whether Widevine L1, L2, or L3.

Android Screen Problems
One of the considerations for recent Gadget reviewers is the issue of maximum screen resolution quality when watching digital streaming services.
This is why many devices can’t watch Streaming with HD Quality even though they subscribe to the Premium Ultra HD package , the HP screen resolution is FullHD +, and the Internet is fast, why is it blurry?
This happens because many devices are not equipped with a Widevine L1 or L2 certificate but only Widevine L3 . What ‘s the Difference Widevine L1 L2 L3 ?.
To watch Netflix streaming up to UltraHD 4K maximum quality requires a Widevine L1 certificate. For maximum HD 720p quality, Widevine L2 certificate is required, while for Widevine L3 the maximum quality is SD 540p only.
