*Additional Information:

Thank you for reaching out.
I am not able to reproduce this on my end using very similar device/settings (all the same except Galaxy S22+). I went to Bitchute, let a video play for ~3m, paused it and was able to drag the video control bar forward/backwards, hit play and resume playback at the point I dragged to. I also tested doing this while the video was playing as well.

Is there anything else particular about your device or browser setup? Also, I’m wondering if you try this in a Private browsing window whether or not you get the same behavior?

Hi Matthches,

Thanks so much for checking out my issue. I have gone back into Brave, in Bitchute, and had success with fast forward and rewind just like you did.

I should have mentioned I sometimes accidentally close Brave. When I go back in to the video I was watching and try to start from where I left off, it clocks and does not re-load and run. If I click before or after that point, I still have the clocking issue. Maybe I messed up the buffering somehow?

This does NOT happen in a private window though, you are right.

Regardless, thank you for answering so quickly.
