H.265/x265 Playback on Desktop Not Working

Brave version: 1.51.118
Source: Debian repository
OS: Debian stable (Bullseye as of writing)
Problem: x265/H.265 videos do not play back natively in the browser.


  • The same videos do play back in the Android version of the browser.
  • Codecs for it are properly installed because the stock video player for Gnome/Debian can play the videos back.

Is this expected, or is there some option I need to enable that isn’t by default?
