Thank you, you were lucky not to have to witness the horrible sight of me trying to edit pacman.conf and mirrorlist.

@Expatbrat, thats why the pinned comment is there

Everytime I update vivaldi and vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs (with yay) the update appears to download and make chromium. This is long and painful, is there a way around it? Am I doing something wrong?

@ZauberParacelsus This is just a hunch, but that might be a sympton of outdated Try running /opt/vivaldi/ script to update it. For cleaner results, remove /var/opt/vivaldi/media-codecs-* and ~/.local/lib/vivaldi/media-codecs-* folders, remove /opt/vivaldi/* file, and then run the update script.

For more bleeding edge, you can try installing vivaldi-codecs-ffmpeg-extra-bin which I just updated to download version 80.0.3987.87.

After installing this latest update (2.11.1811.33-1), I am experiencing a lot of stability problems with youtube:

I've had the following happen: 1) Whole-system freeze while watching youtube, requiring a manual reboot 2) A tab containing youtube crashed 3) While watching youtube, my desktop session crashed 4) A tab containing youtube froze up and killed my keyboard input even after I closed Vivaldi, forcing me to reboot my system

@jamdox, you can build your own vivaldi 2.9:

I hope it helps!

Is there a 2.9 version available I can downgrade to? The pinned link only has 2.10, but 2.10 breaks fullscreen video.

@Itara_Kitsune that should *not* be added to the install script. Not everyone wants to have these things installed, and forcing them to be installed with the browser is the wrong approach. As @Musikolo pointed out, you can install different packages if you want to have a more seamless update process. But especially with respect to Widevine, the Vivaldi install script should not be installing/updating other packages. There are many people who do not want anything related to DRM on their system, and that makes this a nonstarter.

@Itara_Kitsune, my recommendation is installing the following two packages instead:

This way, you don't need to run any command manually.

I hope it helps!

Each time Vivaldi updates, I find I have to run sudo /opt/vivaldi/update-widevine and sudo /opt/vivaldi/update-ffmpeg to restore viewing functionality to sites that use protected content/DRMed videos.

Could these commands be tacked to the end of the install script, having them run after Vivaldi itself is installed?
