So annoying, I also noticed this. Workaround would be to turn on Auto-rotate (Android setting).

Thank you for reporting — seeing a few reports of this today, will bring it up to the team. Can either of you confirm whether or not the behavior occurs in Chrome as well? Trying to discern whether or not the issue is specific to the Chromium engine or with Brave itself.

Thank you

Yes the problem is also present on chrome

Exact same issue with me as well. Video doesn’t go full screen in YouTube as described by OP.

I also have the same issue since today. I tried it on edge which is chromium and same there also. Seems like a Chromium issue then.

Hopefully get this fixed because having to use the auto rotate android feature sucks especially when lying down, so have to keep turning it off and on over and over.

I belive is chromium engine, all Chrome, Edge, and Brave no longer auto rotate in full screen, but Firefox still works.

So what do Brave devs suggest? Uninstall Brave and use Firefox?

Still no resolution for this issue?

I am getting so annoyed having to use auto rotate and having to turn it off again after watching videos.
