Description of the issue: Whenever I watch a video on Brave, Android doesn’t recognize there is a video playing, because it turns off the screen after a minute, as if the device was inactive. However, it only happens once. If I resume the video after the screen turned off, the screen will stay active as it should.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Make sure your Android phone is set to turn the screen off after a certain period of inactivity (mine is set to one minute).
  2. Open a web page with an embedded video longer than one minute.
  3. Play the video and make it full screen.
  4. After a minute, the video will stop and the screen will turn off.
  5. Turn on the screen, resume the video and make it full screen again.
  6. The screen will not turn off this time.

Expected result: The screen should not turn off the first time you play a video.

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.32.106 (latest).
