Full screen video doesn't hide the status bar in Oreo


Using HTC 10, stock Oreo. Any time I’m watching an embedded video on the web, full screen kinda works in that it expands, but doesn’t cover the status bar.

Here’s an example on nbcnews.com. happens on all embedded video types, even YouTube, while the YouTube app full screen works just fine and as expected. It seems as if Brave doesn’t have permission to go totally full screen, but I can’t find a setting for that.


Hi @Joeyfrenchfries,
