Video wont play

Description of the issue:
The video refuses to play and shows “Unable to play content. Could not find plugin to play type: ‘media’”.

Exact URL of the website in question:

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

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
If I change the “Cross-site cookies blocked” to “Cookies blocked” the video player doesn’t load.
If I change it back to “Cross-site cookies blocked” the error message is displayed again.

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave):
Version 1.1.20 Chromium: 79.0.3945.74 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Thanks for reaching out to us. Looks like I’m able to reproduce this issue on my end as well. Allowing cross-site trackers resolves the issue, but that shouldn’t be necessary with Shields. I’ve reached out to our filter engineers to take a look and see if we can implement a workaround/fix for this.

This should fix it, give it 24-48hrs for the update to roll out.
