Sync: Status update


  • Moderator

    @nafex Nice to hear, that Sync works now for you after a new login.



  • @nafex I had the same issue on Arch Linux here. But after starting vivaldi-snapshot via shell it works now. Thanks @Gwen-Dragon :)

    Btw, if we're talking about sync now, is there any plan to support web panels and search engines as well @julien_picalausa?
    Otherwise sync worked really well over the last month for me on my devices, thanks! :)


  • Vivaldi Team

    @benjo: Yes, there are plans to support that and more :)



  • Great work Vivaldi team!



  • @nafex: I too have had crashes - on Ubuntu 16.04, and Debian 9.3
    Ubuntu V (1.15.1111.3) crashed about 3 times. Each time I had to re-enter username/password/encryption key - finally it was happy.
    Debian V (same version as above) always crashes when the notification to re-sync pops/drops up - no usable at the moment. Will re-try with a new profile



  • @cheekybuddha: Ah yes, I forgot - I started my ubuntu V via the shell to try and get the output when it crashed, but it hasn't crashed since!



  • @cheekybuddha: :-(
    Unfortunately, in Debian, starting from shell doesn't help - here is output:

    $ vivaldi-snapshot
    
    No suitable library for HTML5 MP4 (H.264/AAC) video and MP3 audio was
    found, therefore only open codecs will play.

  • OK, tried a new profile in the Debian machine - all worked OK.



  • @quhno: nope, core is Opera's featureset



  • It crashed for me twice using Ubuntu 14.04 but synced successfully when I ran vivaldi-snapshot in a shell.



  • @nafex I was having the same issue with:

    Arch KRNL 4.15.7-1
    Vivaldi 1.15.1111.3 64bit

    Vivaldi would silently crash after I entered the encryption password. But after trying a couple more times it succeeded and everything is in working order. Cant say why, but it seemed to work itself out.



  • Sync works noticeably faster now.
    Sometimes internal site vivaldi://sync-internals/ becomes unresponsible or displays many nulls while syncing.
    Problems happen especially when I added it as a webpanel (it had a terrible hiccup during first sync... and finished with dead bird after few minutes...)



  • What about the pop out video?

    @kened It's a fairly rare user that wants this feature, comparatively, but it is a known feature that some want. That said, as Chromium's huge development team is already working in incorporating it into the engine, it would be kind of insane to Vivaldi to drop everything else for their their tiny team to work on it. I say drop everything else, because it would not be a trivial project. It would be at least as large as History, or the Window panel, both of which took months in development - probably larger. So as long as someone else is already doing it for free, it makes no sense for Vivaldi to spend their time and money to try to beat Chromium to the punch.



  • I use snapshots as my default browser, now I installed a standalone version of it to try the sync. It works nice: bookmarks, notes, passwords, opend tabs and extentions has been synced, but not the browser configuration itself.
    Could you implement it as well?

    @burbuja That's a little ways down the road yet. It's not as easy to do.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    @julien_picalausa: can mouse gesture be synced too? now each time I reinstalled vivaldi, I need to set the mouse gesture over again....



  • @rtransformation you can just copy the profile to the new installation



  • @julien_picalausa Why does the label "Notes (Except Attachments)" appeared in last builds? :(



  • @rotfl where?
