Same issue

Samsung A40

Android 11

Tested with 2 browsers same issue. Vivaldi and samsung browser.

Same here. OnePlus Nord 2, Android 13.

It’s either from YouTube’s side(most probable) or Chromium’s side, since a lot of users including me are facing the same issue in the recent days.

Unfortunately it’s still an ongoing issue and may be for a short while till they figure it out…

This issue is a Chromium issue that will likely have to be fixed upstream — we have another thread here:

We will be sure to keep everyone updated on the status of the issue.
