Locast.org Broke as of 60.47


Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
Default states are:
_Block: Ads/Trackers, 3rd Party Cookies, 3rd Party Fingerprinting Allow: Encrypt Connections (HTTPS), _

Where and how do the ads appear? (fill out below)
The ads try to load but they are blocked instead of bypassed which isn’t supposed to happen. When the stream loads it doesn’t load right away. In the network tab it shows the .ts files for the ads which we didn’t want in the first place. It does technically block the ads but doesn’t do it in the right way in order for the stream to go past 15 minutes. It has to wait until the ads would theoretically end. Before the update it would end up not showing and would cut right into the stream which is what we want as Locast.org is showing ads and cutting you off after 15 minutes unless u donate. This technically does count as an ad because they are promoting something (mainly themselves) and we have seen the fact Brave has bypassed this issue before update 60.47. Because the ads would show now but are blocked the stream kicks you out after 15 minutes which never occurred previously before update 60.47. I am guessing the issue at hand here is the fact the chromium update did something to stop this issue which in term is going to need to be patched on Brave’s end for this to be fixed.

Can’t really show a picture as the ad doesn’t exist as it still is blocked.
