Amazon Prime Video still not streaming on Vivaldi (2.2.1388.34)
I had stopped using Vivaldi sometime back because of no Widevine support but since they claimed to support it after version 2.2.1388.34, I gave it another try. To my dismay, it still gives errors when streaming DRM content while Google Chrome on the same system works just fine. I am attaching the error message below for your perusal. Please let me know if I am missing something since I really love the browser and am really looking forward to using it again.
The video plays fine. Thriller
Can you play the tests below?
I'm having the same problem since updating Vivaldi from 2.1 to 2.2.1388.37. Can't play video on Netflix, can't play the Amazon video you linked to. On the first test page you linked, the H.264/MP4 video won't play and neither does the video on the second test page. I can also no longer play the videos on my local newspaper's site (http://www.hs.fi/) and some Youtube videos refuse to play, too.
What's strange is that all of this was working fine on the previous Vivaldi version (2.1.something). Is anyone else experiencing this?

@ntoivola Chromium base code was updated and it seems you need to update your codecs
@TbGbe Here is the good news:
Widevine is now fetched automatically from our official packages
@TbGbe Thanks, the vivaldi-libffmpeg-install.sh script did the trick, although it did say that it should not be used on Ubuntu (which is what I'm on). I do have the chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra package installed but I suppose it's too old? Maybe this is because I'm still on Ubuntu 17.10 (should update, I know).
Anyway, my videos are playing again, thanks!
@ntoivola You should thank me
Nice it helped you.
I know that my script warns not to be used on Ubuntu. Why? Because in most cases a codecs package may be available on Ubuntu repo.
But you can override the warning and go on to install a user-defined libffmpeg lib.
