For the people not willing to download 500MB of chromium source to build this package:

You can install it from my repo: https://repo.herecura.eu

Note: When the version here in AUR updates you should keep in mind it can take up to 30 minutes until its available in my repo.

If you are using an AUR helper you must make sure you have enough space where the helper wants to build. If your helper uses /tmp or something you are very likely to run out of "diskspace" while building this package.

Well, the size of this package is really getting out of control. I can no longer build it in my tmpfs, which is 4 GB in size btw. So I have to set TMPDIR env. variable to a bigger partition. Build like this took a very long time, and I'm a busy man, especially at work where I use this PC :) I believe the big part of this is the need to download entire chromium with every upgrade. I'm not concerned about download time, but compilation and unpack... And the only resulting file, that is the one left after this whole ordeal, is only 3.3 MB according to "pacman -Ql". I would use the package "vivaldi-snapshot-ffmpeg-codecs" but it is several versions out of date, and I use Arch exactly for the latest and greatest software :)

It's me again, the ffmpeg issue in combination with python.
As seen here:
https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/17134/python-nativemessaginghost-youtube-dl-something-strange

Without vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs installed my script works fine, python use native sys ffmpeg.

If i install the package, ffprobe adds a 'file:' in front of 'file:' and the path is wrong.

Not sure if it's vivaldi-related.
Chromium is working as expected.

@BlackIkeEagle : Thank you very much for the repo, that saved me a very ton of lot of time ! ;)

@locuaz : Try again without Yaourt first....

When building this package I get error messages, how can they be fixed?

@Musikolo Yes its convenient, But at times vivaldi and opera don't share the same base blink version which can cause issues with the ffmpeg. So for this < 1M packages I rather have them work at all times with their respective version

@BackIkeEagle: I'm an Opera and Vivaldi user, and in order to use ffmpeg plugin, I need to download both opera-ffmpeg-codecs and vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs packages.

My questions is: since both use the same binary file (libffmpeg.so), wouldn't be much better to have combined package with a single binary and create a couple of symlinks to it for both Opera and Vivaldi?

I think this is convenient for every user and saves time too.

Thoughts?

i had to install gcc first, otherwise won't compile.

sergey.orloff commented on 2016-11-22 13:47

Assembling this package takes 37 minutes, and the size of 1 MB. :) Thank you BlackIkeEagle, for the new repository, which I learned later than the program collected.

is it possible to find another way than downloading and extracting the whole chromium package, because i am running out of disk space on my small laptop SSD trying to upgrade this package.
