IMDB Trailers skipping

When I go to and click on a trailer and click play, the video just skips to the next one in the queue and will do this until the queue is completed. No video will actually play. This only seems to be an issue with IMDB and I have tried to reproduce this in Chrome and Firefox but they are both working fine.

Win 10 and Brave Version 1.16.68 Chromium: 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit)


I have the same problem with Windows 10 64bit installation and Android version on my Samsung A51.

I tried to install new Brave Beta version on my Windows 10 but same problem occurs. Also I tried to disable Hardware Acceleration but no luck.


On IMDB before you play a trailer click on the Brave Icon right side of address bar and put Shields Down for this site. Only problem you will get an ad that you have to watch but it’s the only way I know to watch the trailers.

Dooger, That worked! Thank you so much for your help. If I have to see an ad once and a while, it is still easier than opening Chome and pasting the link. Thanks again.

Forget watching video ads, just search for the trailer on youtube.
I see the problem exists for me too, but I’m not watching ads for free.

I also suggest clicking the “Report a Broken Site” button (from a webpage where the video is not loading) so the Imdb issue can be fixed in the future.

gmacar, I also reported it at the same time. Thank you.

Brave please fix this! ASAP! or what can we do to fix on our end?
I’m having the same issue, however I work in ent, so I use the site everyday all day long. And I really don’t want to go back to using google for IMDB. Please help.
