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.

@hringriin

Because compilation by default happens in /tmp/ if you try to install the package using yaourt. /tmp maps to half of your ram by default and probably your system is running out of memory and trashing.

Try manually cloning in your home and compiling.

The required file is no more available. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gentoo/gentoo/master/www-client/chromium/files/chromium-gn-bootstrap-r17.patch

Compiling this melts my cpu ... Load of >20 before losing connection to X-Server. Time is 11.34 on my Desktop Clock, its 11:41 in realtime ...

Switching to another tty takes ages, login doesn't work, due to extreme delays.

Plus I do not understand, why disk load is 100%, according to my HDD LED ..

Any recommendations or am I just stupid?

vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs causes mpv to crash by somehow changing ffmpeg. Is there a workaround for this?

@JeroenMathon, Thank you for the idea. This method is the best.

Step 1. Fetching the source wget http://ftp.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_60.0.3112.78-0ubuntu1.1363_amd64.deb
Step 2. Extract the deb ar x chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_59.0.3071.109-0ubuntu1.1360_amd64.deb
Step 3. Extract data.tar.xz tar xJf data.tar.xz
Step 4. Install libffmpeg.so sudo install libffmpeg.so /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so After this your audio and video paly back should work accordingly.

@LinuxOSUser, thanks that finally worked. :-)

You can also turn off tmpfs for /tmp by typing this command and rebooting:
systemctl mask tmp.mount

Found here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/tmpfs

That should resolve the lack of space in /tmp

You should change your script, there is too much workload here. it is a very simple procedure.

Fetch the codecs-extra.deb's from the debian repo, extract the .deb and from that the data.tar.xz and move the ffmpeglib.so to /opt/vivaldi/lib/

Here are the steps i used.

Step 1. Fetching the source wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_59.0.3071.109-0ubuntu1.1360_amd64.deb
Step 2. Extract the deb ar x chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_59.0.3071.109-0ubuntu1.1360_amd64.deb
Step 3. Extract data.tar.xz tar xJf data.tar.xz
Step 4. Install libffmpeg.so sudo install libffmpeg.so /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so After this your audio and video paly back should work accordingly.

Although without installing this package I see no difference in Vivaldi.
