Widevine for Vivaldi snapshot missing
Hi, I use Manjaro, and have Vivaldi snapshot 1.3.501.6 (Developer Build) dev (64-bit) Until recently, I have been able to watch Netflix. Now, I am getting a message from Netflix that I need Widevine. Widevine for Vivaldi is available from the AUR, but it lists Vivaldi stable as a requirement and attempts to download it. Is there a workaround? Thanks.
the vivaldi and vivaldi-snapshot packages just have an optdepend on google-chrome. so if you install google-chrome together with vivaldi or vivaldi-snapshot it should work.
the widevine package in aur should also work since vivaldi or vivaldi-snapshot links to that particular *so file.
if you don't want the specific dependency of vivaldi-widevine on vivaldi, you can just remove that from the PKGBUILD. it is not correct, in theory the vivaldi-widevine package could be an optdepend of vivaldi and vivaldi-snapshot.
thanks, that did it!
