YouTube picture-in-picture closes when other apps are used

When viewing a YouTube video (live or recorded) in “picture in picture” mode while using other apps or another tab on the browser:
1–after several minutes (not consistent, but approximately 15 - 20 minutes) the picture-in-picture vanishes and
2–I have to go back to the YouTube tab and resume or refresh the video.
With a previously-recorded video, sometimes it will continue where it left off, other times it starts back at the beginning and I then must try and figure out where it was when it stopped.

This began in the last month and I never experienced it before that.
I have no other problems with any apps, I do keep the iPad up-to-date, frequently clear all data/cookies/cache/history. I’ve tried closing the app completely (in background, too), restarting the iPad, performing the “Reset Network Settings” under General/Reset settings, deleting the Brave app and reinstalling, and a sync/backup. None of these fix the problem.

Here’s the “About” info copied to clipboard from Brave on my iPad: Version 1.46.2 ( BraveCore 1.46.144 (108.0.5359.128) Device iPad7,5 (iPadOS 16.2)

Hello there @Arcadia7, thanks for reporting this issue. Do you have any power save setting enabled on your device that may be interfering with the app’s performance?

Hello, Kevin_cc, This occurs with or without the Battery “low power mode” enabled, so I was unable to see that it made a difference. (That’s the only power save option I’m aware of.) I really appreciate your interest! Many thanks. I’ll continue to try and see if I can find any sort of pattern to this and, if so, I’ll add information to this discussion. thanks, again!

@Arcadia7 thanks for your reply, please do the following:

  1. Launch Brave, tap Menu --> Settings
  2. In the Features section, tap Brave Shields & Privacy
  3. Toggle the following feature off:
    a. Upgrade connection to HTTPS
    b. Block scripts
    c. Block fingerprinting

Let me know if that works.

Will do! I’ll probably give it a couple of days, then add another update here. Love this browser, by the way! I’ve used it for a long time on my iPad and iPhone, and with this exception it’s a seamless and fabulous app! Thank you, again.

Hi, again, Kevin_cc, Your recommended changes to settings seemed to fix the problem! If it happens again in the future, I’ll post an update… for now, everything looks great.
