Embedded videos won't play without trackers turned off

Version 1.2.43 Chromium: 79.0.3945.130 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

On news sites like news.google.com/ or o.canada.com the videos in the articles won’t play unless I turn off “Block Cross-site Trackers”

Can’t find a solution to this anywhere; it’s a deal breaker for any browser though. I see lots of other questions in this area - why isn’t Brave addressing this?

I’ve just done a whack of browser bench-marking and concluded that Brave is the best browser EXCEPT for this.
And I can’t use it this way.

So disappointing.

Hi @binkyd,

I’ve visited both of the sites you’ve linked. Videos are working fine for me and I’m using Brave’s default Shield settings. Would you be able to share your Shield settings and a more specific link to an article where the videos do not work?

The videos wouldn’t play for several days, so I stopped trying.

Went back after I saw your reply, everything is fine.
What-the-heck. I have no idea…

Thanks for checking, I guess it’s closed now.
