HBO Max suddenly doesn't play anymore even when it worked fine days ago

Description of the issue: when pressing play for tv shows on HBO Max its left on an infinite loading screen. But works just fine on other browsers, like chrome.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open brave
  2. Go to HBO Max and log into profile
  3. press play
  4. tries to play video is left on loading screen
  5. turns shields on/off with no difference
  6. tries to restart nothing happens

Expected result:
being able to stream video

Brave Version( check About Brave):
version 1.18.77

Additional Information:
I tried looking up if it was HBO’s fault but all that came up was clearing the cache, I tired that and it didn’t work. I have windows 10. Please fix this issue.


@Bri.F Just tested this. It’s working for me (I was able to play WW84). The latest update addressed this issue.

Ensure brave://settings/?search=widevine is enabled, and clear the site settings (and relogin).

I am now having this issue. It started with the last update.

Fix incoming into next Brave minor release (week or 2). Apologies for the issues.
