Shields needs an option to block the JW Player that follows as you scroll

You know those JW Player video overlays that minimize to the right edge of a webpage and follow along as you scroll down the page, like one one on this page?

Brave needs an option to hide those.

Each site would have it’s own “scroll down” implementation, Blocking JW player is easy, but would cause some false positives. We have blocked other video/playlists, JW is used for some legit videos

In Chrome, I use Ghostery, and I’m able to customize what gets blocked. I don’t see JW Player at all on this page in Chrome because I can control which elements get blocked where.

Go to brave://adblock/ scroll down to Custom Filters and copy/paste the following:
