Have you ever tried to use the full screen function without active shields? I have to disable the shields on some pages to make them work. :shield:

Thanks for the feedback. When I turned the shields off to play the video, the video is permitted but, still no full screen on cwtv or nbc. I’ve also tried allowing auto play on. Still no full screen on cwtv or nbc. If someone could try out streaming on cwtv or nbc with Brave, could be their sites issue. Though my Chrome browser displays full screen on those sites.

Thanks again

Not actually using a Brave browser, but just encountered exactly this problem with full screen video play on nbc.com, on 2 Windows 7 PC’s and 1 Windows 10 PC using Google Chrome browser v. 71.0. DId find some references to Brave developers deliberately trying to “come closer” to the Google Chrome browser, and in this case they apparently came TOO close. Would guess it is related to possible changes nbc.com made to their site recently, as the problem didn’t exist a month or so ago. Solution seems to be to use recent versions of Firefox (v. 57.0.4 on one machine, 63.0.1 on another), where full screen viewing works just fine. Hope Google, Brave, and/or NBC come up with a patch before long!

Thanks, cwtv full screen is now working for me. nbc still not. True, other browsers work the full screen. Hope brave and nbc get together. Like Brave’s concept.

Full screen is not working for me either on NBC. A couple weeks ago everything was fine. I have not updated or anything. I am using chrome on a Mac.

#7

Thanks for feedback. Still using Brave on Windows 10 (updated yesterday), no nbc full screen.

This will likely be fixed in the next update. I’m seeing issues with full-screen and regular video playback on all these sites on Release channel, but nothing on beta or dev.
