The "Brave Shields" thinks that the AD TV Stream is an Ad/Tracker, but it isn't



Hello, it seems that the “Brave Shields” thinks that the AD TV Stream is and Ad/Tracker. But it isn’t of course.

Would that be because the embedded FlowPlayer is configured incorrectly (as a representative from FlowPlayer suggested to me by email) or would there be something wrong with the “Brave Shields” ?

Thank you.

Hmmm… No idea if this is still of any interest…
Anyway, here’s a screenshot of my settings, these are the same as the default shield settings:

For a test I also added “Block Phishing/Malware” but I removed it again before taking the screenshot. As you can see, the settings are the same as in your first screenshot - but the video plays for me.

The thing is, last Friday I renamed my profile folder and let Brave create a fresh one. This fixed a crash that was happening all the time before, now it doesn’t happen anymore. Alas, I don’t want to suggest letting Brave creating a new profile “blindly”, except as a test.
My OS is Windows-7, too, but I have the newest Brave version, 0.23.79.
