How can I watch Netflix in HD on a gt-king beelink that does not have the Wevevine L1 certification?
Is there any hope?
Do I just have to install a modified APK or is there a longer procedure?

Installed on a Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab (google variant) and it works perfectly! A version of the Netlix app comes preinstalled on the unit and you cannot uninstall, but it can be disabled. Thank you!!!

As a side-note, I'm shocked at how bad sub-720p on a WUXGA screen with Neflix compression looks. I'd take a local 480p file with proper encoding over a janky 540p stream any day. Whatever the reasoning for this L1/L3 issue (licensing?), it sure makes for a poor user experience out of the box.

Hi, thank you for tell us your experience.

So if I'm right it's only a few simple steps on the Yoga Smart tablet.
Correct me where I'm wrong:

1. Stop & Disable pre-installed Netflix App
2. Allow installing app (apk) from local storage
3. Install APK
4. Login with officials credentials
5. Have fun in Netflix-HD on the Lenovo Smart Tablet

What to do with a Netflix update from the playstore?

TY for any response

I used this 4.16 patched apk for a long time but now i am getting an error (0013) that just solves if i update netflix, but then I get Widevine L3 again.

is it possible to make a patched 6.xx or 7.xx netflix apk ? ? ? ?

I tried my self, but got this message:

But this apk still 4.16 version.... Is not possible to patch newer version like 6 or 7 to enable L1 and HDR ??

Tnx a lot , really god job you did so far.

Unfortunately not. Newer versions use a more sophisticated source code obfuscation and I cannot solve it yet.

How can i verify the video is playing in HDR because i tried but can hardly see any difference.

TBH I don't know. First, check your phone/tablet supports HDR. Secondly, open a movie or series in HDR. Here is how it looks on my projector: https://imgur.com/MS4clJM
