Visit Unlike other videos, this auto-plays.

Linux, Version 0.67.124 Chromium: 76.0.3809.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

Works perfectly fine on my Linux distro with Version 0.69.100

As you can see from the icon in the upper right corner, the autoplay has been blocked.

I thought I was going crazy after I reset Brave to defaults - the ad was indeed blocked. However, after I installed the Vimium extension (which I use for browsing), the ad was not blocked. While I understand this is not a Brave-specific issue, per-se, does anyone have experience with Vimium conflicting with auto-play. If so, any suggested fixes?
