Reddit videos and spotify web player don't play when shields are up

Description of the issue:
I can’t get reddit videos and spotify web player to play. I installed Windvine and yes, I can login into spotify now, but it doesn’t play the songs - they get stuck at 00:00. The same happens on reddit, because the videos won’t play at all.

But if I put the shields down, all of these work.!

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Go to and try to play the video with shields up
  2. See that it won’t play and disable shields
  3. See that the videos play
  4. Go to and try to play the song with shields up
  5. See that it won’t play and disable shields
  6. See that the song plays now

Reproduces how often:
The issue happens every single time when the shields are up.
