Description of the issue:
Sites like Youtube, Movies Anywhere, etc., will not play purchased movies (ie. Protected Content).
The “Protected Content” setting (in Site Settings Section of Settings) is set to “Allow”. Tried it set to “Ask” setting first, but did not get asked to allow Protected Content. It just failed to load.
Have also tried viewing Protected Content with “Shields” turned off. It did not correct the problem.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Go to streaming site, like mobile Youtube.
- Click on “Library” link and then choose “Purchases”.
- Click on a movie to watch.
- Page will load, displaying error message " Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available.

- Cry a little.
I would expect Brave to play Protected Content.
