Brave not blocking ads in YouTube

I am observing this issue since last 2-3 days. When I visit on Brave, shields do not block video ads on homepage. So I tried shields down and then turning up. When shields were down, I was also able to see the banner ad and the video ad, when the shields were up, it only blocked the banner ad and not the video ad. Also I’ve blocked the video autoplay on all the websites, but still the video was playing. I have also included screenshots below

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Visit with shields up
  2. You will see the video ad playing
  3. Turn shields down and then turn back up.

Expected result: Brave Shields should block video ads too. Also as autoplay is blocked it should atleast not play the video

Version 1.9.80 Chromium 81.0.4044.138

@Brave Software, please fix this issue
