Description of the issue:
Since upgrading to the latest version of Brave v1.18.75 I’ve noticed that a number of websites now have audio playback blocked. These sites worked correctly with previous versions of Brave, and still work on other browsers
Steps to Reproduce
- Go to https://pogomix.bandcamp.com/album/cultures
- Click the play button
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Autoplay blocked icon appears in address bar, despite the request to play audio resulting from a user action. Audio does not play.
Audio should play
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
MacOS 10.15.6, Brave Version 1.18.75 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (x86_64)
Did the issue present with default Shields settings?
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
