"You're offline. Check your connection" YouTube error message

Recently when trying to play YouTube videos I started receiving this error message. (Image below) The video will play if you reload the page, but only once you click on it first, receive the message, then reload it.

It only occurs when using the Brave browser. Chrome and Edge play YouTube just fine. It also plays fine on my IOS smartphone. Is anyone else having this issue?
