@drgadget Automatic Widevine was added for Vivaldi Stable 2.2 and onwards (see https://vivaldi.com/blog/vivaldi-update-focus-on-details/)
From your bug report, you stated that you have Vivaldi version: 2.1 (OpenSuSE) & 2.3 (Raspbian). So for openSUSE you would need to upgrade to a newer build to get automatic Widevine support (required by Prime).
For ARM-based systems you might get it working but the performance will be absolutely terrible (there is no hardware acceleration). First though, you will need to get Widevine manually because Vivaldi cannot get it automatically for ARM, since Google does not offer a download. More information can be found here:
This script should handle the Widevine part
For H.264 support, start vivaldi from a terminal and follow the directions.
@kenryov Are you sure this a DRM problem?
My stable (and snapshot) also does not show DRM as a component, however when I check
The two DRM videos (Big Buck Bunny) both play (using Widevine via CENC) so the component does not seem to be needed!?
Edit: Look under Tools/Settings/Webpages and check if "Enable Widevine Plugin" is checked.
Thanks, that is a very useful link, I think I can try some scripts out and maybe achieve my goal......
It would be great if Vivaldi also offered an 'Chrome-like' protocol handler for email links, maybe that will be developed before too long.
@Euriur I have not tested.
But install Python2.
Downlaod the Zip from https://github.com/JRBANCEL/Chromagnon/archive/SNSS.zip
Extract to to folder ~/Chr/
python "~/Chr/Chromagnon-SNSS/chromagnonTab.py" ".config/Vivaldi/User Data/Default/Last Session" > "~/last_session.log"
python "~/Chr/Chromagnon-SNSS/chromagnonTab.py" ".config/Vivaldi/User Data/Default/Last Tabs" > "~/last_tabs.log"
python "~/Chr/Chromagnon-SNSS/chromagnonTab.py" ".config/Vivaldi/User Data/Default/Current Session" > current_session.log
python "~/Chr/Chromagnon-SNSS/chromagnonTab.py" ".config/Vivaldi/User Data/Default/Current Tabs" > current_tabs.log
I'm having this problem too.
In my case, apparently is a problem linked to performance. My computer is not very powerful and sometimes has slowness problems. If I start the Vivaldi browser and some slowness occurs while it is started, it deletes all cookies.

Do you have a middle button on your Ubuntu box?
If so, clicking it down with a slight movement then release seems to be a temporary fix that someone stumbled upon.
I add that it is advisable to use a different password in kwallet to launch Vivaldi, than the one used for the general access to the SO.
Aí ensures, that in case of having to take the PC to a repair shop, they will not have access to your accounts, although they can use the sistem and the browser as well if you give them the general password.
By default the kwallet uses the same password of the OS, but if you go to the configuration> accounts, you can change your general password, but the kwallet does not change with this and stays with the previous one.
I just submitted another bug report, too: VB-52130. It does not contain a backtrace however since it was one of those "other" crashes, where the browser just would not update its window contents anymore. Had to kill it off, did supply strace output... maybe it is of any help. Before freezing the browser wrote several of these messages to the console:
WARNING: texture bound to texture unit 0 is not renderable. It maybe non-power-of-2 and have
incompatible texture filtering.
