Brave doens’t tell the OS about song change via D-Bus’ MPRIS interface.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open any music streaming service, e.g. YouTube Music.
- Open a playlist and play it.
- Click on next button.
The OS(Gentoo Linux) is totally unaware that a new song has started playing, because the D-Bus wasn’t notified of any song changes.
Brave triggers a song change event on D-Bus’ MPRIS interface whenever a song starts playing after clicking on “Next song” button.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version:
Version 1.19.88 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)
playerctl metadata --follow to watch for song changes and it works with Firefox. I installed Brave using the
brave-overlay on Gentoo.
