Videos do not play on Brave Browser

**Description of the issue: Youtube and other websites’ videos won’t play in Brave. When attempting to stream the player stays stuck on the first frame of the video, and in the case of YouTube the loading symbol spins infinitely. When trying with Shields down, the ad before the video will not even play. I have even restarted the Brave browser and cleared all cookies twice, but it does not work.
I have not experienced any problems in the past, and videos played normally before the update.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Update to latest Brave version
  2. Watch any video on any website (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, etc)

Expected result: The video does not play, just shows the first frame of video.

**Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.12.112 Chromium: 84.0.4147.125 (Official Build) (64-bit)

**Additional Information: MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.6

@BrytonikLeegend,
Can you tell me if you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time? Additionally, can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration
