Amazon Music non-functional from autoplay prompt


#1

Context:

Brave cannot play music when visiting https://music.amazon.com/ due to an autoplay prompt. There is no work around, so users of Brave cannot use Amazon music.

Environment

Brave 0.19.53
rev e09025b
Reproduced 10/20/17
MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 (Latest)

Steps to reproduce

  1. Navigate to Amazon music (link above) and log in
  2. Attempt to play music
    A warning is displayed:
    Enable Auto-play (see image below)

I checked the network tab and the following error is displayed:
Failed to execute 'play' on 'HTMLMediaElement': API can only be initiated by a user gesture.

Expected behavior

This warning should not appear or there should be a workaround. At the current version, Amazon music’s website is non-functional.

Duping to Amazon Music stopped Autoplay after upgrade?
