Video playback not working



Video playback is not working on any site. The video starts playing but the video screen is all black. I can hear the audio from the video but the video itself is all black. Howerver when I go to the youtube page the video playback works but embedded youtube video doesn’t. Really weird!


What version are you running?


Brave: 0.18.30
rev: 795cc102729fc843ea82757c9e9508242fd5830e
Muon: 4.3.17
libchromiumcontent: 61.0.3163.71
V8: 6.1.534.31
Node.js: 7.9.0
Update Channel: dev
OS Platform: Microsoft Windows
OS Release: 6.1.7601
OS Architecture: x64


The problem seems to be embedded video. I can’t even play the video at braves website. The video is playing and I can hear the sound. I can even pause and everything except that the frame where there should be a video is a black box.

The only video site that seems to be working is youtube. But only if I go to the youtube website. Videos from youtube embedded on other pages such as Facebook are not working. I fact no videos are working on Facebook.


Hi @TheSilverSabre

Have you experienced this in previous versions?



I wouldn’t know. I’ve only been using Brave for a few weeks.


@TheSilverSabre when you go to to play the video, what are your shield settings?



Sorry for me not replying. I don’t have this issue anymore. After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 the problem got resolved somehow.
