  1. Play music in web browser
  2. Press any media button

Every time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Additional Information:
I don’t know if this is even a bug. I assume there would be some kind of support but everything I find on the internet doesn’t directly match my issue. I switched over from Chrome and removed any extensions that might interfere. I’ve disabled the #hardware-media-key-handling setting in flags but still nothing. (see below)

The music playing in the “Modern Media UI” or whatever it’s called but the hotkeys just aren’t working. (see below)

Any help is appreciated.
