Amazon PrimeVideo not working with Vivaldi, advice on spoofing my browser ID?
witchtech last edited by
Amazon PrimeVideo has been upgraded and it now works and supports IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera, I though it would also work with Vivaldi given that nearly everything that works with Chrome, works in Vivaldi, but this is not the case.
I suspect this is Amazon´s fault blocking any browser not found in the list of supported browsers even if it works, I have not found any work around yet, perhaps somebody has a way to spoof the browser ID so that PrimeVideo believes I am on Chrome or Firefox when I visit?
May be this could help (but i do not have have a own PrimeVideo):
Install User Agent Switcher
Select a browser with the button only for amazon prime page.
Do not forget to switch back for otehr pages to Chrome - Default which means in this case Vivaldi ID.

Or just open developer tools, and in the network conditions tab is a checkbox for the user-agent. You will likely have to try multiple ones until you find one that works.

I installed User Agent Switcher, I spoofed various browsers and in all cases I get this message below, I believe it is wrong because PrimeVideo works fine in Firefox without asking me to install Silverlight or anything.
I find it surprising that the real Firefox works but the spoofed Firefox does not. Perhaps is the way Silverlight interacts with Vivaldi, I don´t know...
@witchtech There is no need of Silverlight for Vivaldi. Vivaldi has the ability to play HTML5 video.
Videos https://www.amazon.de/gp/prime/ should work in 1.14 Snapshot as i know.
@gwen-dragon Not working, at least not for me with Vivaldi 1.14.1047.3 - Linux. User agent switcher works, but i think Amazon is doing something else, really no idea. I have the same problem as it has been described by @witchtech
