When I scrolled down (see URL above), a video ad (with audio) played to completion and there was no way to pause it!
I was shocked to see this happen on Brave. It did not happen when I downloaded the same page on Chrome (with Adblock Plus) or on Safari (with Adblock).
Auto-play videos embedded in text articles (whether third party or first party; with or without audio) are the sole reason I began using ad blockers. (The last straw was a video ad that followed me down a page on the New York Times website, where I’m a paid subscriber, and would resume playing even after I hit pause!)
The above URL belongs PostMedia, a Toronto-based newspaper company, which is a particularly egregious offender (for videos that start playing automatically when you scroll down).
If Brave cannot block videos (embedded in text articles) that play automatically (and since installing third-party ad blockers on Brave would defeat the purpose of Brave) then I might as well not use Brave at all. Please try to fix this.
Thanks in advance.
