Loaded fine here, tried a few videos. Playback instantly @Bubba Using a VPN or secureDNS?

That figures. No, I’m not using a VPN or secureDNS. Something changed with the Brave Browser several months ago as it used to work fine until then. I haven’t changed anything on either PC (Win 10 or MacBook) and the issue began on both machines at the same time so I have no idea what could have caused it and I was hoping someone else experienced this problem and found a resolution.

I have looked into this problem a bit further. If you play the rumble link/video in question on another browser, you will see that there is a 5 second ad, then a skip button appears, If you don’t press the skip button, the add takes (at least) another 10 seconds to auto close. Brave browser is blocking the ad, hence the 15 second delay before the video plays. My suggestion:
If Brave are going to block the ad, can they trigger the auto close after 5 seconds?
