SEEMS TO BE SOLVED - PLEASE SEE REPLY DOWNTHREAD
Description of the issue:
–YouTube videos embedded in websites/posts will not play; I get the error in the screen shot below.
–It makes no difference if I go to another tab and sign in to YT. Whether or not I am signed into YT, the videos still don’t play if they are embedded in a website.
–If I open the video on YT it will play. It just doesn’t play as an embedded video.
–If I open the website in a private Brave window, the embedded video plays in the website. Also, if I paste the URL into Safari, the embedded video plays.
–This is a new (recent) behavior. I’ve used Brave for several years on the same computers but this never happened until a few days ago.
–I tried (1) updating Brave and restarting it, (2) clearing Brave cache/history, and (3) I also cleared YouTube site settings but the problem persists.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Try to play the YT video embedded in a site, such as either of these:
- The problem also occurs if I try to play a YT video embedded in a tweet such as this one:
Would like YT vids to play when embedded in website so I don’t have to open YT in another tab or use private windows all the time. Thanks!
