Using Brave Desktop Browser, on, a video will not load & some ads are not blocked

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Where and how do the ads appear? (fill out below)

On homepage of,

  1. The Video did not render on the left side of the screenshot
  2. All of the ad’s on the right, and in the banner were not blocked.
  3. The top banner ad from 101 domain WAS blocked you will be able to see comparing the first two screenshots:

Screenshot #1 Brave Browser:
bb-1 ![bb-2|391x448]
Screenshot #1 Google Chrome:

Further Down, you can see in “Brave Browser Screenshot #2” a “” banner was not blocked, however, it is for the same domain, so I am not sure if this is avoidable.

As you compare the two screenshots you will see that brave browser did do a good job of blocking the “smart advertising” banners that usually persist between each article.

“Brave Browser Screenshot #2”:

“Google Chrome Screenshot #2”:gc-2

URL where ad was displayed:

What Brave version/Build are you using? (About Brave)
Version 0.59.34 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Any feedback on why these ads persist, and why the video does not render would be greatly appreciated!

I love Brave browser, am looking to become more involved, and looking forward to it getting better and better!
