Videos on facebook and vimeo will not play (Youtube and Netflix work fine)


Subject line says it all. I’m a little tech challenged, would love to make Brave my main browser, but the video situation has made that a challenge. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I can hear audio, but no video.

Shields? They are up except Block scripts switch that is not on.

Video work on youtube (Although will have trouble sometimes, I may have to reload, works on netflix, but embedded videos on twitter and facebook do not. Get white block, but do get audio.)
