Brave cannot play video files in Google Drive

Description of the issue:
When playing MOV and MP4 files in Google Drive, the play button turns red and then nothing happens (i.e. the video does not play).

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Upload a video to Google Drive or choose an existing video file
  2. Wait for the video to be processed
  3. Open video and click play button

Expected result:
Video plays

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.0.0 Chromium: 78.0.3904.97 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I have tested the same files in different browsers (Firefox 70, Safari 13) and they play as expected.

macOS 10.15.1

You can see the issue in this screen capture (perhaps using Firefox or Safari!)
