Last week I became to view youtube videos with Brave’s shields up. I changed no settings just prior to this happening. The video appeared black for the first couple days, now it appears white. I can not pause/play the video by clicking on it, I have to click the pause and play button (by the volume) UNLESS pop-up’s are allowed. If pop-ups are allowed, then I can interact with the pause/play function by clicking the video.
If I turn the shields off, the video runs but it has ads and pop-ups. I tried clearing the cache, cookies, history. I have no add-ons. I tried playing a video in both private and private with tor, same issue. I reset settings to default, no luck. I uninstalled and reinstalled, nothing. I closed all tabs and then closed the browser, opening it fresh, again, didn’t work.
I don’t know how this can be reproduced. Youtube appears to be working on everybody else’s computer but it seems like youtube is blocking specifically my brave browser’s shields. I think it’s reacting to Brave’s ad-block.
Version is: Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Please help! I’m learning to code right now and absolutely require youtube to learn.
