Description of the issue:
Opening links in a new tab won’t autoplay the video/audio until it’s the active tab. I use invidio.us, but the same happens on youtube and hooktube. I want to enable autoplay so that I don’t need to make it the active tab for it to play the video/audio.
Steps to Reproduce
1. Search a video
Control click (Open in new tab)
Video/Audio won’t autoplay until it’s the active tab
(Opened link in new tab, no sound icon, not playing)
(Opened link is active tab and begins playing)
Operating System and Brave Version:
[Up To Date] Brave Version 0.57.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.80 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Shields are off on the site
Site settings for invidious
Brave content settings are all on ask/allow (except for popups and redirects)
I use DuckDuckGo - (In it’s settings) anything to do with tabs and autoplay is allowed.
I’ve found no solutions so far by searching online (All issues and fixes i’ve seen have the opposite problem to me (Disabling autoplay in a new tab)).
