This page has been blocked by Brave

Brave is going to be an also ran that people try when firefox pisses them off, but is eventually dumped for the same reasons. Here is an example why.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Visit the site
  2. Try to watch the live feed.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Brave is detected by as an adblocker and won’t let you watch the news.

Expected result:
Basic functioning video.

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
win10 pro,
Version 1.25.72 Chromium: 91.0.4472.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Brave is ok at blocking stuff but can’t unblock stuff -
When an element on a page is blocked Brave proudly tells you its blocking something - but you cannot right click it and unblock that element. I should not have to explain why that is not good.

Finally Brave does not work with youtube. Fixing youtube should be priority 1, 2 & 3 at Brave but since installation nothing has changed & I have to clear all site data for youtube every new tab & the comments still don’t load - this issue is well documented on this site. Unacceptably bad & an obvious failure of your testing process.

Thanks for the report, have issued a fix

Give it 24-48hrs.

Still blocked for me, do I need to force Brave to update in some way as I’m on a later version the the OP?

I have zero issues with Youtube btw.

Retested here, no issues on video playback.

From brave://components/ and Brave Ad Block Updater - Version: 1.0.972 or better has the fix.
