Please note that you won't need this package if you have google-chrome installed, vivaldi will find the plugin from that package as well.

You can check if you need this package here: If the video plays, you're already set regarding widevine, even though you might still need the vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs.

@Scimmia, yes, I see know. Sorry for the confusion.

I've googled a bit about it, and I've found this: -

I hope it's helpful!

You missed my point. The pinned comment says that vivaldi will find and use the plugin installed by google-chrome, that doesn't appear to be true at this time if it can't use the current version.

As for chromium-widevine, check who the submitter and maintainer is on that.

@Scimmia, Google Chrome comes with this plugin embedded, so there is no need of external plugin installation. In addition, this package is only for Vivaldi browser. If you need it for Chromium, you should use instead.

I hope this clarifies everything.

Thank you!

So a google-chrome install will no longer work, either. I hope this is just a one-time change in how the plugin is handled upstream and not an ongoing problem.

@Scimmia, version 4.10.1146.0 requires Chromium 68 which is not shipped in Vivaldi yet. I tried that version of widevine some weeks ago, and it didn't work for me. As soon as a Vivaldi-compatible version is released, I'll update widevine.

Thank you!

@yuu-syss, thanks for the heads up. The issue is fixed.

I don't know what's going on with the Google guys changing the EULA license every other day...

Thank you!

Still having issues. Isn't the eula sha256sum f6aa8b7920d20c874deabc745517e0486e88fe9de667ad3d5fe6f61665ec725c instead of 8a0e9057c2a27bfcc74e210b848e6824e3c6c8f41232ca034362bcddfb95acbd ?
