Instagram Video Won't Play in Brave Browser

  • I posted an Instagram video to our Wordpress blog at The video appeared on the screen but would not start/play when clicked in the Brave browser. I went to the original post in Instagram at to determine if response was the same and the video did not play on Instagram either in the Brave browser. I also verified that the video would play from our wordpress blog on Chrome.

Forgot to include, YouTube videos do play correctly in the Brave Browser.


I can play the video from Do you have autoplay disabled on Instagram by any chance? Also what happens if you click on the video a second time?


I cannot find an option for autoplay. Searched in the support center, no results for auto play or autoplay.

First click looks like this. Does not play:

Second click the start arrow appears over the top of the video.


Auto play setting is in preferences under security I can easily play the video from the link you have given
