Autoplay Protection not working

I just made the switch from the Muon Version and after making sure the settings are as I like them I noticed that YouTube Videos are still playing automatically (even though I have disabled Autoplay on all websites).

I am using Brave Beta Version 0.56.5 from the Brave repository on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon (64 bit).

@jotoho, thanks for reporting. Can confirm that Youtube is bypassing autoplay block, as well as others as well. Looking into this!

@jotoho You can disable autoplay using the following steps

  1. Visit
  2. Click on Padlock icon on URL bar
  3. Click on Site settings
  4. Change Autoplay drop down from Block (default) to Block

Follow the first method from here Autoplay not blocked on some sites regardless of settings configuration · Issue #1761 · brave/brave-browser · GitHub

The directions you gave here don’t work. Here’s the version I’m using.

Version 0.65.121 Chromium: 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I go to autoplay like you said. The options I have are Ask (default_, Allow and Block. Allow is selected. I choose block and it stays on allow. I can click on Ask(default) and it changes to Allow(default). I can’t change it from Allow.

Hi @azspamhater

Sorry for the delayed response. Ok I see the problem. There is already an issue logged for this but had different scenario. I’ve added a +1 for this on the issue
