@ZauberParacelsus This is just a hunch, but that might be a sympton of outdated Try running /opt/vivaldi/ script to update it.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?

@Daddie had similar issues on my laptop running a almost 10 year old arch... no issues in new installations, on my new PC --> no Problems with vivaldi, no querries for password extra/libgnome-keyring is installed but extra/gnome-keyring is not

BlackIkeEagle commented on 2019-11-19 11:23

@Daddie, from what I received of information chromium based browsers try to store sensitive information somewhere encrypted

Chromium-based browsers store sensitive information encrypted.  On macOS, the password to encrypt/decrypt is stored in "Vivaldi Safe Storage" in the keychain.  On Linux, it uses gnome-keyring or kwallet.  If there's no place to store the key, I think it prompts you for a password so that it can encrypt/decrypt data... otherwise it would have to store sensitive information (like login passwords) in the clear.

the latest version of chromium faq still states it will store it unencrypted but that might have changed recently

I'm using lightdm + compiz standalone. But why? Why does Vivaldi need an unlocked keyring?
