changed today?
They were re-signed with the new package signature as the one we were using before will expire early next year. The contents of the files are identical. If you still have the old files you can verify this for yourself. unpack the old and current versions in different directories then construct a find command to run sha265sums against all included files and compare the results. You will see they are identical.

That is not something I can replicate but I will say that Netflix in particularly notices a failure from the past, puts down a cookie to state that things are broken and then will often not allow a video to work even when you fix things. Which is really annoying. In fact Netflix's own help page about "Unexpected Error" even states,

Usually clearing cookies for Netflix and trying again fixes the problem.

Another thing to keep in mind is that even if widevine is setup perfectly, you still need to add proprietary media support first or it will fail anyway.

P.S. I have updated the help page to hard code 4.10.1196.0 because Google's https://dl.google.com/widevine-cdm/current.txt file tends to lie. 4.10.1196.0 is the version used in Chrome stable and is the latest version as of today. I also wrote a comment in my widevine update script about how to specify this version manually, since current.txt is always out of date.

That makes zero difference, since they both source Vivaldi from the same binary package and hence are the same. More likely your Netflix cookies expired by the time you tried again.

P.S. This is the latest widevine https://dl.google.com/widevine-cdm/4...-linux-x64.zip

The test videos from the Vivaldi help page (I linked to them in my other post) also failed in my initial tests. I doubt it was a cookie issue.

The help page from Netflix suggests otherwise. But anyway, if it wasn't that, it was lack or proprietary media or some other issue. It was not because you switched to the SBo Vivaldi package. If you don't believe me switch back and you will still have working Netflix. Better yet, read the SlackBuild and you will see that nothing special is done with regards to widevine and the source .deb is identical to the one my script fetches.

I know what happened. In the process of installing Vivaldi from SBo, I also installed vivaldi-codecs-ffmpeg-extra, and then promptly forgot that I did that. If I had remembered that, I'm sure I would have realized that that was the real fix. Thanks for correcting my misdiagnosis.

No problem. I am just glad it works!
