Mobile Device details
android 11,

Additional Information:
I have tried clearing the cache and uninstalling/reinstalling.

Can you tell me what type of device you are using when you see this behavior? On my end, I was unable to reproduce the issue. Video playback/sound continued for me while my phone was locked throughout the length of the video.

Sorry I’m just seeing that there was a response now. I was able to get it fixed after factory resetting the phone.
