Description of the issue: Occasionally, when browsing YouTube in Brave and tapping the full screen button while holding the phone in portrait, the display will move to landscape but the video will play in portrait - cut off in the bottom left corner.
How can this issue be reproduced?
Hold your phone in the portrait position while on a YouTube video
Tap anywhere on the video to bring up the UI
Tap the full screen button at the bottom right of the screen
Expected result: Seamless transition from portrait to landscape with the video stretched to fit the display.
Brave Version( check Brave 1.45.127, Chromium 107.0.5304.110
Mobile Device details Google Pixel 7 Pro on android 13, Build TD1A.221105.001
Additional Information: This issue happens regardless of auto rotate being enabled or not in android. I can reproduce this bug at a rate of about 10-20% of the time. Here is a link to a video of the issue → https://imgur.com/a/8SetOLj

Hi there. I cleared everything in the advanced tab (excluding passwords) for all time but the issue persists.
@Hxnd, on that case, please try disabling your shields while changing to full screen to see if this is the cause of the issue?
Please let me know if that works.

Thank you kindly for your replies. I have disabled the Brave Shield and I can still reproduce this issue although anecdotally it may appear less frequently than with Brave Shield up.
@Hxnd thanks for that information. Are you using the release version of Brave on your device? If you are try installing
Brave Beta or
Brave Nightly from the PlayStore to see if the issue persist.
Be waiting for your response.

Using release. Installed Beta and the issue is present there too.

Same issue happens on my Samsung Galaxy S9 using android 10 too.

this really an upstream bug that has not been fixed in almost 3 years? If so that’s pretty disappointing.
@Hxnd do you have
power saving mode enabled on your device? If that’s the case, please try disabling it to see if you no longer experience that bug.
Be waiting for your response.
We’ve opened an issue on our Github for this and hope to take a look at/resolve it soon:
