I have a similar issue with videos in brave and I just updated my Samsung. If I put my phone in horizontal mode while playing videos in brave, it stays horizontal and will not correct. I think this may be a Samsung thing. Do you use all of the Samsung apps and services? Do you have to use their service before they will help you? With your phone, I mean?

I have the Samsung apps but I never really use them and I’ve never really needed to use them for support but I may have to with this issue. It seems other browsers are also the same but apps are ok if they are listed in the fullscreen section of the display settings
