Facebook videos hang Brave

Description of the issue:
Starting a video on Facebook hangs Brave. Clicking a link to a video FROM Facebook to Twitter also hangs Brave. Sometimes, the audio will play (it sounds like it’s playing twice), but not the video.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Facebook
  2. Click on a video (sometimes ads work, but never user uploaded videos)
  3. Nothing happens.

Sometimes, the video will play silently, but as soon as I unmute the audio the video hangs.

Expected result:

Click video, it should play. Unmute audio, I should hear a single stream.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.18.78 Chromium: 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:
Extensions: Rakuten, a password keeper, Amazon Asst, AnyList, Bitmoji, Zoom Scheduler, Session Buddy.
MacOS - Big Sur

Hi @bluedream

Can you re-try in private window mode, with all extensions disabled?

Good idea, same result.

And then, just like “that”, it fixes itself. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
