Video Link Will Not Play

I was trying to open a video link here. [] but the link won’t open and play.

I’m running Win Pro 7 and its the most recent version. I checked the updated for Brave and I have the latest version.

I’m able to play other video links with no problem. I’m also able to play the link above on Brave on my ipad. So the issue seems to be between Brave on my PC and the link on that page. I tried other video links at and I got the same Results. I’m wondering if it may be some setting issue with my browser on my PC?


Can you please edit your post or create a new one fill out the template as per thePosting Guidelines? Once done I’d be more than happy to assist you.

Description of the issue
Video links on the sight below will not work. Tried other video on that site and they don’t work either. IOS Brave on my ipad woks fine. Seems to be just an issue with Brave on my PC and that web page.

Exact URL of the website in question

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? [Default states are: Block: Ads/Trackers, 3rd Party Cookies, 3rd Party Fingerprinting Allow: Encrypt Connections enabled (HTTPS), Scripts] (yes/no)
Everything is on and it didnt work

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? (yes/no)
Sheild on or off made no difference.

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no)
I have no idea.

Does the site function as expected when using Chrome? (yes/no)
I don’t have Chrome

What Brave version/Build are you using when you encounter the issue?(About Brave info)

Brave 0.25.2
V8 6.9.427.23
rev 8ea2a9c
Muon 8.1.8
OS Release 6.1.7601
Update Channel Release
OS Architecture x64
OS Platform Microsoft Windows
Node.js 7.9.0
Brave Sync v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent 69.0.3497.100

This is because you’re using an outdated version of Brave. We’ve depreciated that build in favor of this one:

I highly recommend you install the new build and enjoy a much better browsing experience.
It runs in parallel with the Muon version you have installed now, so you don’t have to uninstall or overwrite anything and you can even import data from your previous Brave install into the new build.

The videos you linked to play without issue using default settings on the new build (v0.58.17). Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Ok I will do that but I had no idea that I was using a old version. I tried to updated and got the impression I had the latest version. Is there some way you can add a feature in the future where a pop-up will notify user that there is a new version. It may help resolve issue in the future.


Also, do I have to uninstall the old version first before installing the new one or can I just download and install?


Nope, the new version will install by itself and can be run stand alone from the previous install.
You can import bookmarks and other settings by following these instructions:

Ok problem fixed. Thanks

Out of curiosity, why did you make it a stand alone?

This was done due to development constraints and to ensure the integrity of user data. The old and new builds use different interfaces/frameworks - that is, “replacing” the files/code from the Old version (Muon) with files/code from the new one is not a simple task. Additionally, should something have gone wrong in that process, important data may have been overwritten or lost if not backed up.

This way, anyone can install and use any Brave build they want without having to uninstall or overwrite any files or browsing data.

Hope this helps!
