it seems to work fine with youtube in larger “theatre” mode, but fullscreen video is black.

Hello @Jeandtilley

Thank you for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you please try installing the Beta or Nightly version of Brave to see if the issue persist on those versions?

Be waiting for your response!

unfortunately those versions are not available for ios
