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.

I initially removed the pkgver() function, because with it the package won't build using bauerbill (I've provided this upstream), but re-added it for now.

But I don't know whether pinning just the x86-architecture is the way to go: By doing so, each 32bit user has to redownload the whole chromium every time an update is available, even though nothing changes. Additionaly, they get the impression of a frequently updated software, which it isn't and as which it should not be regarded.
After all this is a media extension and definitely has its security flaws, so users should know if there are no more updates.

Unfortunately, as of now, I don't have any better idea than slitting the package up or dropping 32bit support, which I don't like, either.

Without the pkgver function, the 32-bit version gets the wrong pkgver. It also makes it more difficult to update, as you have to look up the version manually every time you bump the chrome version.

I completely forgot about the snapshot-package, sorry.
I'll upload a new version without dependency as soon as possible.

The package should not have a hard dependency on vivaldi since its also usable for vivaldi-snapshot

So I will add an optdepend on vivaldi-widevine in the vivaldi and vivaldi-snapshot packages.
