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

bug

#1

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 https://www.reddit.com/r/nonononoyes/comments/9i5myc/i_think_i_can_i_think_i_can/ 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 https://open.spotify.com/track/4YsFuYyDwfDrUl6bSL6g8H 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.

Brave Version(about:brave):
Versão 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Versão oficial) 64 bits

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
Yes.

@phquiste,
Both of these issues are currently known and being worked on. There is a cookie(s) required for Reddit media and Spotify to play as intended. To resolve this:

  1. Visit reddit and/or Spotify
  2. Open your Shields panel and set the Cookie Control setting to All cookies allowed image
  3. The page will reload and the site(s) should work as intended.
