I have Microsoft Edge Chromium Beta. Up until 9/31/19 I was having no problems with watching Netflix. Last night I started getting Error Code: D7111-1331. I tried following all of Netflix instructions with no success. I even downloaded and installed Microsoft Edge Chromium DEV with no success. Any suggestions?

As HotCakeX said...give Canary and/or Dev a try. If you're uncomfortable with Canary (although it's mostly stable and if there is a bug it's corrected within a day's update or so) than try Dev. Dev is updated weekly, still has the more newest features (although maybe not as new as Canary), and isn't buggy. You can run both Dev/Canary alongside of Beta. Heck you can run all three independently if you wish. Excluding security update issues it seems to take about five weeks for the fixes in Dev to catch up to Beta as Beta is updated only once every six weeks or so.

I tried it with Canary using a family member Netflix account, and I was able to view video fine. Although I was only in it a few minutes. I don't have/use Dev so I can't really speak on that. I wonder if it's a Chromium/Chrome issue. To see what version of Chromium that's being presently used by Edge Beta/Dev/Canary go to this site while using whichever Edge browser, than see if that same error/glitch was in that version of Chromium/Chrome: https://www.whatversion.net/chrome
It's a little hard to explain, but the version number on Edge browser is Microsoft version but it's being built (or overlaid I guess is a better term) upon a specific version of Chromium that seems to be also updated every so often/few days by Microsoft. Right now Edge Canary is at 79.0.291.0 but it's actually 79.0.3918.0 in Chromium version being used where as Chrome Canary is at (today) 79.0.3929.0 and Chromium itself (today) is at 79.0.3930.0. So technically...maybe...that any bug in that version of Chromium/Chrome is in this version of Edge.
