Description of the issue:
whenever I’m watching, YouTube video—full screen, and I leave the app after I pause the video, the video breaks. I can’t go back into it as the screen is black. The audio still works, but everything else is broken. This makes me need to reload the page. Very annoying but still fixable.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. go to youtube
  2. watch a video in full screen
  3. pause the video and leave the app
  4. go back in to brave

Expected result:
the video screen turns black but audio remains.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Hello @Axoltz

Thanks for bringing this to our attention and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you kindly try guest mode, In order to get a Private window, you’d have to hit the tabs button (like you’re trying to switch tabs, it’s a little box with a number showing how many tabs open). Then while it’s showing all open tabs, you’ll see the Private button to click on.

Let me know if that works!

Yeah, just going into private browsing doesn’t work. It’s probably a glitch with this IOS update. Tell me if you get this same problem with whatever mobile device you’ve got.

btw, i’m using the brave search engine, idk if that changes the outcome

Hello @Axoltz

Thanks for your reply we appreciate the details. Could you kindly try to reinstall Brave Browser.

Let me know if that works!
