Brave and youtube not working now


The videos never play:
Mac: 10.12.5 (16F73)
Latest version of brave


Hi @ashvecchio, is this still happen in latest release?


Yes, it’s killing my Mac!


What happens when you’re on YouTube? Do the videos show up but you can’t just press play? Are they all black? Do the videos leave a big blank area?

Can you also check if you have “Enable Strict Site Isolation” enabled in your preferences?

Also check your Brave shields in the top right. Try turning them off, or if you have a setting that blocks YouTube content somewhere (universal shield settings are in preferences).

More information and screenshots would be great! Thanks.


t’s also not working for me console reports an error (a few actually, but this one is relied on by the player)
