Can't watch 360 videos


Description of the issue:

I cant watch 360° videos; it seems to not be supported or not activated. instead of a normal experience I have a still strange video

How can this issue be reproduced?

1.open brave
2.go to a 360° video, in YouTube for instance here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmeDl0EJPL0
3.watch and try to ‘control’ the view by clic and drag inside the video

Expected result:

in a 360°video we should be able to see a ‘normal’ image, and also be able to control the view; by simply clicking and dragging

Brave Version( check About Brave):

[Version 1.0.1 Chromium: 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Additional Information:

I have tested with Firefox and I can watch 360°videos

OK I have my solution.
If you are interested; here how I did:

in the web page where there is the 360 degree video;
I clicked on Brave Shield icone
I first tried to disable it all : and it worked ! 360 videos were working
but I tried without disable it all :
so I re enabled Brave Shield (main button), and just below :
from " Device recognition attempts blocked " to " Cross Site device recognition blocked "

and it works. Brave Shield is not disabled and 360 videos are working.

hope it can help other Brave users.
